LOS ANGELES — Eddie Murphy is on fire! Just weeks after the premiere of his hit biopic “Dolemite Is My Name,” the 58-year-old actor signed an indenture with Netflix to star in “Beverly Hills Cop 4.” Talk of a reboot has been going on for awhile. But Eddie finally put pen to paper to make it happen. After a 25-year hiatus, Axel Foley is back on the streets. If you recall, “Beverly Hills Cop 3” came out in 1994. “I figured out a way to connect the dots — there has to be some kind of record, I don’t know if there’s ever been a sequel 30 years afterward — that’s what we’re doing now,” Eddie said.
“I’m just over the moon how it’s turning out. I used the same director that I used for ‘Dolemite Is My Name’ and some of the actors. [Dolemite] went so well that we just wound up on this next project.”
In addition to Beverly Hills Cop, Eddie is also working on “Coming to America 2.”
