News Simon Brew 6 May 2014 - 06:49

It's definite: Eddie Murphy will be back for Beverly Hills Cop 4, which is due in March 2016.

Well, this one's been a long time coming. Notwithstanding the fact that it's over 20 years since the last Beverly Hills Cop movie, there's been talk about reviving the franchise several times since. Just a year or so back. The Shield's Shawn Ryan had a television spin-off pilot made, but the decision was made to press ahead with a big screen sequel instead.

As it turns out, Beverly Hills Cop 4 is finally, definitely happening. Eddie Murphy will be returning to play Axel Foley, with Jerry Bruckeimer producing. Brett Ratner was originally attached to the project as a potential director, and we believe that's still the case.

Furthermore, we now have a release date: Beverly Hills Cop 4 will arrive on March 26th 2016.

Axel Foley returns to Detroit for this particular adventure, but that's all we know so far. More as we get it...
