Eddie Murphy Puts Brakes on Beverly Hills Cop Sequel

CelebNMovies247.com is NOT surprised by this one bit. Eddie Murphy has put the brakes on another Beverly Hills Cop movie because the scripts he has been offered have not been great. Basically they SUCK!

Eddie Murphy has reprised his role as the smart-talking police officer Axel Foley in the blockbuster 1984 film and sequels from 1987 and 1994. So we get why the movie has to be better than any of the previous.

Buzz kicked in back in 2013 when a TV movie surrounding Foley’s son hit the small screen sparked chatter about a fourth Beverly Hills Cop film, which would bring Murphy back as Axel.

Yeah it was just chatter, because the Shrek star insists talk has stalled because there’s not a good enough script on the table.

Here is how Eddie Murphy put it to Extra about a Beverly Hills Cop sequel:

“You know they’ve been trying for years to get a Beverly Hills Cop together and haven’t been able to get that right one.”

“I don’t want to do it unless its right.

“I had a couple of times when they’ve (movie bosses) been like, ‘Hey let’s do it’, and, you know, it wasn’t right, but they’ll do it anyways because the title of it. There’s an expectation and people might come out to see it no matter what it is but I don’t want to (do it). I’ve done my share of s**tty movies and I don’t want to do a s**tty movie.”

However, the 55-year-old Murphy will be back on the big screen with a more substantial role in feel good film Mr. Church.

In the film he plays a compassionate cook who becomes the rock for a young girl and her dying mother.

Eddie explains:

“I wanted to do something that I hadn’t done before was totally uncharted waters for me as an actor.”

 “I usually do comedies, trying to be funny; I’ve never been offered anything that had this type of emotional stuff going on, this subject matter.”

Mr. Church opens in cinemas on 16 September (16).
