'Beverly Hills Cop' Reboot with Eddie Murphy Hits Theaters in 2016
Briefly: Last year we learned a new Beverly Hills Cop was part of Jerry Bruckheimer's new production deal at Paramount Pictures, which seemed to indicate that the film from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol scribes Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec would be on the fast track. Brett Ratner is still back to direct the film after being attached to the project for years while it went nowhere, and now Deadline reports Paramount has set a March 25th, 2016 release date. What's interesting is that this project is being called a reboot, and yet, Eddie Murphy is still starring in the film. Are we looking at a story that will bring Axel Foley's son into the mix like the failed TV pilot (which inspired film interest again) attempted to? We'll see.
