One of Eddie Murphy’s most prized roles was when he took to theaters as Axel Foley, the young cop from Detroit who ended up in the town of Beverly Hills. Previously it was announced that Murphy would be filming the fourth installment of the franchise Beverly Hills Cop, and it was set to be released in March of 2016. Now reports are saying that the film will no longer be released in March of next year. TheWrap revealed the news yesterday on the film.
Eddie Murphy‘s comeback vehicle will have to wait a little while longer, as Paramount has taken Brett Ratner‘s “Beverly Hills Cop 4” off its release schedule, a studio insider with knowledge of the situation has told TheWrap. It was just more than one year ago that Paramount announced it would release “Beverly Hills Cop 4” on March 25, 2016. While the film remains in development, it has not moved forward as quickly as Paramount originally envisioned, though recent movement in the studio’s executive suites has complicated matters. The delay may ultimately prove to be a blessing in disguise for “Beverly Hills Cop 4,” which would’ve found itself going head-to-head with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” on March 25, 2016.
In other news, Eddie just released his music video to song ‘Oh Jah Jah’.
