A film saga based on characters created by Daniel Petrie, Jr. and Danilo Bach, Beverly Hills Cop is a film saga that includes dramatic and comedic films and an upcoming television series that has not yet been released. Axel Foley can be seen in the film as a hard-working Detroit police officer who comes to Beverly Hills to conduct an investigation of a crime that takes place outside of his area of responsibility.
The sequel to Beverly Hills cop was a $276 million blockbuster in 1987. Beverly Hills Cop III’s $119 million gross failed to triple the formula’s success. Beverly Hills Cop IV is indeed on the way with Murphy as Axel Foley, as Hollywood never gets tired of any valuable IP. A one-time licensing agreement with Paramount has enabled Netflix to produce the sequel after so many years.
What About The Movie?
Hollywood cop movie Beverly Hills Cop 4 is about to start production after the state of California granted hundreds of millions of dollars worth of monetary incentives to the project. Paramount Pictures and Netflix in early 2019 announced a deal for Netflix to produce a fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie, the fourth film in a series that began in 1984. The third movie in the franchise, Beverly Hills Cop III, was released in 1994.
The fact that Beverly Hills Cop IV is now ready for production suggests that a script that meets Murphy’s high standards has finally been completed. In the original Beverly Hills Cop movies, Murphy’s smug personal style was in sharp contrast to his uptight Beverly Hills surroundings, which emphasized the contrast in their respective styles. But Murphy himself is substantially old and wiser now, so it’s likely that some tweaking will take place to the formula.
No matter what direction the story takes, the biggest selling point will always be Murphy, whose comeback tour has been a welcome treat for fans. As Detective Billy Rosewood and Sergeant John Taggart, Judge Reinhold and John Ashton respectively played them in the original Beverly Hills. As the officers are assigned to keep an eye on Foley upon his arrival in Beverly Hills, they become acquainted with him and feel a deep mutual respect.
After the movie concludes with Axel heading back to Detroit, the three drink together to celebrate a well-done job. The upcoming Beverly Hills Cop sequel would also be ideal if Judge Reinhold and John Ashton could also make an entrance.
Netflix is dominating the resurgence and adaptation of old movies. It seems like the streaming giant is setting the bar high with respect to its original productions, both in terms of quality and quantity. There is no question that Beverly Hills Cop 4 would be a welcome addition for all Beverly Hills Cop fans if Murphy, Ashton, and Reinhold joined the cast. We can only hope the Cali-set project will be able to bring it to fruition.
When can Beverly Cops 4 be Released?
Murphy relaid the news to Desus & Mero in March. Netflix is currently handling the script, he said. We’re supposed to develop it next using a script, which they’re doing.
Until the date for the film is announced, we still need to wait for a lot of months, maybe even a couple of years, perhaps.
