Netflix is on a roll with starting production on almost a dozen big movies. Beverly Hills Cop 4 is one of these movies. After languishing in development hell for decades, Beverly Hills Cop 4 has got an exciting update from producer Jerry Bruckheimer. 

The action-comedy franchise, created by Daniel Petrie, Jr. and Danilo Bach, centers on Eddie Murphy’s Axel Foley, a street-smart Detroit police detective. Foley frequently finds himself pulled to the titular California town in the hopes of finding those responsible for the murders of people closest to him.

Alongside Murphy, the cast for the Beverly Hills Cop movies included Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Ronny Cox, Paul Reiser and Gil Hill. The franchise has encompassed three films to date, the first of which was critically acclaimed and scored an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay and two Golden Globe nods for Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy and Best Actor for Murphy.

However, the latter two garnered progressively worse reviews and lower box office returns. Given the film’s devoted fan following, Paramount have made multiple efforts to continue the franchise, and now audiences are getting a promising update on the long-awaited Beverly Hills Cop 4.

While speaking with ComicBook.com to discuss Top Gun: Maverick, Jerry Bruckheimer offered an exciting update for Beverly Hills Cop 4. The producer revealed that the long-awaited sequel is finally moving forward and filming is about to begin.

“Well, we’re making another Beverly Hills Cop. We start that in like a week or 10 days and that’s gonna be for Netflix.”

Given the film has floundered in development for nearly 30 years, Bruckheimer’s confirmation that Beverly Hills Cop 4 is about to begin filming should come as exciting news for those who have been eager to see Murphy return as fast-talking Axel Foley. It will be interesting to see if a release date is announced by Netflix sometime in the near future. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
