'Beverly Hills Cop' Reboot with Eddie Murphy Hits Theaters in 2016

Beverly Hills Cop

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.

    I hope the plot is that Axle Foley is caught with some transvestites and his son has to bail him out and clear his name.

    The fact that Beverly Hills Cop 4 has a release date for March 25th 2016, gives me hope because that means that Pirates 5 will get a release date soon. Pirates 5 is expected to come out in Summer 2016, so if it gets a release date soon because both movies are produced by Jerry Bruckheimer then Pirates 5 will likely get a release date soon for May 2016 or for July 2016.

      Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales, right? Edit: Pirates 5, right? (I'm excited for that one too!)

        @OfficialJab:disqus Ha ha 😛 . Yes, I'll fix that. Edit: Yes, I meant Pirates 5 even though I said the full title before I edited it.

    I really hope this reboot will be family rated with Eddie Murphy playing ALL the characters. That should really improve his credit. /sarcasm

    Because Eddie Murphy is still box office gold and plus he's still funny! Pfft it's not like any Eddie Murphy has bombed at the box office recently, this man is a genius!

    Lemme guess, Axel's son will be Will Sniff's son.
  • Can't wait. I heard he'll be fighting zombies using his super powers after he gets bit by a GM spider and turns into Bever Hills Robocop.
  • Payne by name
    It doesn't need a reboot. It just needs to forget that the third one ever happened.

    This better be rated R ... ROC
