In 2024, Eddie Murphy will return to the character of Axel Foley in the sequel Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley, some three decades after he last wore the recognizable Detroit Lions jacket in the original film. The path to the release of the long-awaited sequel was not without its challenges.
For nearly twenty years, the movie languished in development hell as the screenplay was rewritten, directors came and went, and Murphy himself took a hiatus until making a comeback in 2019.
The picture has been shot, is presently in post-production, and will soon be seen in theaters, despite the many problems that arose during production. Learn all about Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley right here.
Beverly Hills Cop 4 Release Date
The March 25, 2016 release date for Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley was postponed from the initial May 6, 2015 release date owing to screenplay problems at Paramount Pictures. It would have faced off against Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the box office if it had been released on that day.
Netflix has not yet revealed when Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley will be available to stream. The film was left out of Netflix’s huge 2023 video that announced the December releases of films including Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon. Post-production work has begun on the film.
Netflix usually waits a month or two after a film’s release date before releasing any publicity for it, in contrast to large studio movies, which receive months and months of promotion. While the first Beverly Hills Cop was released in the winter, its sequel and third installment were both released in the summer. Even though it’s not expected to come out this summer, it may be Netflix’s big Thanksgiving weekend launch at the end of the year.
The Plot About Beverly Hills Cop 4
The plot of the fourth Beverly Hills Cop film, now named Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley, has just been revealed.
Nearly 30 years have passed since the publication of Beverly Hills Cop 3, so you may assume that Axel Foley has retired and rejoined the LAPD.
So far, here is all we know:
“Axel Foley returns to Beverly Hills once more after receiving a phone call from an old friend warning that his estranged daughter Jane might be in danger. Quickly making new enemies as he teams up with Jane and her ex, Detective Bobby Tapia, Axel finds himself caught up in a conspiracy stretching between deadly cartels, even the Beverly Hills Police.”
Who Will Be in the Beverly Hills Cop 4 Cast?
Murphy is set to reprise his role as Foley, and the show will also include the returns of the detectives William ‘Billy’ Rosewood (Judge Reinhold), John Taggart (John Ashton), Jeffrey Friedman (Paul Reiser), and Serge (Bronson Pinchot), an art collector and weapons dealer. Kevin Bacon has joined the cast, albeit it is unclear what role he will play.
Taylour Paige joins the cast as a new member with an unspecified role; she is believed to play Foley’s daughter. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has also joined the cast, and the description suggests that he may portray an ex-boyfriend of Foley’s daughter.
