Joseph Gordon-Levitt Shares Why It Is Such A Treat To Work On Beverly Hills Cop 4
The “Beverly Hills Cop” series is one of the most consistently enjoyable in the annals of moviedom. It comes as no surprise, then, that fun is apparently exactly what the cast of the upcoming "Beverly Hills Cop 4" have been having. According to star Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the making of the movie also known as "Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley" has been a real party all the time.
Gordon-Levitt told Collider how growing up with the films was foremost on his mind during shooting. "The first thing I ever remember learning on piano was that theme song, Axel F, right? [...] I have an older brother who loved Eddie Murphy, who loved 'Beverly Hills Cop,' as well as 'Raw,' 'Delirious,' and his stuff on SNL. So it's an early childhood, one of those deep seated affinities."
The star detailed working with Eddie Murphy on set, "I get to hang out with Eddie Murphy and talk about movies and music and stand up, and I mean, he's such a sweetheart. It's such a treat. The whole thing is such a treat." He went on to say that working with fellow artists and tapping into his childhood are "the nectar at the heart of the tree and why I do all this for these experiences."
