New details emerge for the much talked about “Beverly Hills Cop IV,” expected to hit theatres courtesy of Paramount on March 25, 2016. Filming for the fourth installment is expected to take place during “the coldest winter on record.”
Director of the Michigan Film Office, Margaret O’Riley said:
“We are excited to welcome Axel Foley and the Beverly Hills Cop franchise back to Michigan,”
“This project will highlight locations throughout metro Detroit that speak to the city’s heritage while making significant investments in the community by hiring Michigan workers and local businesses.”
The production crew will be heading back to Detroit, with Eddie Murphy’s Detective Axel Foley back in action during the coldest winter on record to navigate the new rules and old enemies in one of America’s most tenacious cities. The film produced by Jerry Bruckheimer will be helmed by Brett Ratner.
The fourth installment was trapped in development hell with many attempts to reboot the popular franchise. Bruckheimer’s involvement in producing the first two installments is considered one of the main reasons why the franchise excelled. The third pic panned horribly and was mainly criticized for the exclusion of key characters and the absence of Bruckheimer and producer Don Simpson. CBS considered working with Murphy on a “buddy cop” project to adapt to small screen but that did not come to fruition.
Let’s see what Bruckheimer and Ratner can come up with after all these years, GeekShizzle has already marked the calendars for this one!
