Beverly Hills Cop 4 Is Back On… Again


Jerry Bruckheimer said he left Disney to return to Paramount because the former put too many constraints on his creative urges, probably the family oriented direction.  He said among his first projects back at Paramount would be Top Gun 2 and an ‘R’ rated Beverly Hills Cop 4.

Cop 4 was shitcanned after Eddie Murphy repeatedly said the script wasn’t good enough.  Now it seems it is back on.

Belgian filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (“Black”) have been supposedly hired to direct it.  Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec are going to write it.  Other than that, nothing else new to add.

I do have some trivia on this though.  First, the movie is going to be set (mostly) in Detroit, the original plan for it to take place in a severe snowstorm.  Second, did you know at one point Paramount execs were pushing hard for a Beverly Hills Cop/Crocodile Dundee crossover?  Jesus, that’s not a joke either.

Anyway, I’d really like to see Sidney Bernstein return.
