Beverly Hills Cop 4 has been in the works for years. But with the recent comeback being staged by Eddie Murphy after his starring role in Dolemite Is My Name, as well as the forthcoming sequel to the classic 1980s comedy Coming to America, there has been renewed interest in the return of detective Axel Foley. However, with the recent disappointing box office performance of Terminator: Dark Fate, it sounds like Paramount Pictures may be a bit nervous about the potential box office returns of a Beverly Hills Cop revival, because they’ve licensed the rights to Netflix to make the movie instead.

Briefly: Hollywood is the sort of place where a TV series that fails before it even hits the air can lead to a new movie. Paramount spent years developing a fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie — the series starring Eddie Murphy last hit screens with a third film in 1994 — but that effort eventually stalled out. A TV pilot came into being instead, starring Brandon T. Jackson as the son of Murphy’s title character, with Murphy playing a small supporting role.
Last week, we heard that series wouldn’t go forward. CBS, which ordered the show’s pilot, decided not to pick it up, and efforts to shop it to another network failed. But Paramount liked both the interest in the pilot and the scenes Murphy shot for it. So now a film isn’t just back in development but, according to Deadline, Paramount is “moving fast” with Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) scripting. At this point it sounds like Murphy would again star; no word if any ideas from the pilot will be incorporated into the movie, or if Jackson will have a role.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 was stuck in on-again, off-again development for years before Eddie Murphy finally reworked the concept as a spinoff TV series. Initially, the new medium seemed like the right approach. CBS won a “very competitive” bidding war to order the Beverly Hills Cop pilot. Brandon T. Jackson, Kevin Pollak, and David Denman were tapped for leading roles, Barry Sonnenfeld signed on to direct…
… And then, nothing. CBS opted not to give it a series order, and no other network emerged to pick it up, either. But if you were clamoring to see the further adventures of Axel Foley, don’t despair. While the TV show isn’t going forward, producer Shawn Ryan says a new movie could be. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
