Paramount announced today that they’ve set the Beverly Hills Cop 4 release date for March 25, 2016. While Detective Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) will be in the title setting for a portion of the film, he’ll be returning to his roots in “America’s Toughest City,” Detroit. Brett Ratner is set to direct the movie with Jerry Bruckheimer producing; Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are writing the screenplay. Hit the jump for more on Beverly Hills Cop 4.
News of Paramount’s Beverly Hills Cop 4 release date comes via ERCboxoffice. As for what we know about the film, Bruckheimer recently said: “We’re going to take Eddie [Murphy] back to Detroit. He’s going to be in Beverly Hills… So we’re going to have some fun with him.” That’s about all we know at the moment, but an official release date is as good an indication as any that the film will see the light of day in the coming years.
