Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley is Bringing Back Some Key Franchise Cast Members
One thing that we’ve learned from Hollywood’s reboot fever, is that a return to franchise can live or die by its ability to recreate the chemistry built by the original cast. If nothing else, Mark Molloy's forthcoming "Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley" will have a shot at satisfying that portion of the equation.
Eddie Murphy may have been the turbo-charged engine that powered the first two movies, but his antics were perfectly complemented by the naive/ticked-off duo of Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) and John Taggart (John Ashton). Ashton sat out "Beverly Hills Cop III," which is one of many reasons that movie feels like a half-hearted sequel. Luckily, it has at last been confirmed that Ashton has returned to the fold.
Bronson Pinchot and Paul Reiser will also return to play Serge and Detective Jeffrey Friedman, respectively. The plot is being kept under wraps, so we've no idea if there might be room for Lisa Eilbacher's Jenny Summers or Ronny Cox's Lieutenant Andrew Bogomil, but the latest casting revelations are enough to make any fan hopeful.
