The title of this film is “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley.” The Detroit police officer makes his way back to Beverly Hills in this movie once again.
Four years ago, Murphy starred in the Dolemite biopic, “Dolemite Is My Name” which aired on Netflix. After a successful run, the streaming giant picked up the rights to make the next sequel to Beverly Hills Cop, with Eddie Murphy taking the lead role once again and Jerry Bruckheimer set to produce. Netflix obtained a one-time license deal from Paramount who produced and distributed the trilogy, with an option for a sequel, that gave the streaming platform the right to make the fourth installment in the film series. Paramount retains the rights to the underlying intellectual property and the original three movies.
John Taggart (played by John Ashton) and Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold), the two Los Angeles police detectives who appeared alongside Foley will be by his side again in this latest adventure. Paul Reiser is also returning to reprise his role of Jeffrey Friedman. Even Serge (Bronson Pinchot) makes an appearance in the film.
Empire reports that the plot involves Taylour Paige playing Foley’s daughter as a criminal defense attorney. She pulls him into a case she is working that is in California. Kevin Bacon is a special-unit police officer who works a case together with Murphy and a character who is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Mark Molloy directed the sequel, “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley.”
The first “Beverly Hills Cop” was released in 1984, followed up with two sequels in 1987 and 1994, and has grossed $735.5 million worldwide.
