Beverly Hills Cop TV Show Dies But Now Another Movie is in Development

Posted July 29th, 2013 at 1:30 pm

Thought to be a hot property going into pilot season the Beverly Hills Cop television series (starring Brandon Jackson as Axel Foley’s son – with Eddie Murphy and others having occasional cameos) was ultimately not picked up by CBS and passed on by other networks. Now that failure appears to be leading to a Beverly Hills Cop 4.

Nearly 20 years after the last entry another film in the series has now been put into development at Paramount. It’s unclear whether it will go the direction that was planned for the show or if it will take on an entirely new premise. The writers behind Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Josh AppelbaumĀ andĀ Andre Nemec, have been tasked with the script.
