Eddie Murphy’s Axel Foley is back in a first-look photo of Netflix’s Beverly Hills Cop 4 also known as Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley. The image shows Murphy as Axel Foley dressed in a Detroit Lions jacket while he addresses a pair of cops advancing toward him. Surrounding Axel is a group of onlookers recording the moment on their phones.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer said that Beverly Hills Cop 4 won’t just rehash elements from the first three moments; rather, he hinted the upcoming movie will have an emotional element that will pull on viewers’ heartstrings.
Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley is directed by Mark Molloy. With a script by Will Beall, Tom Gormican, and Kevin Etten, the movie will also see Judge Reinhold, Paul Reiser, John Ashton, and Bronson Pinchot reprise their respective roles from the previous three Beverly Hills Cop movies.
They’ll be joined by Taylour Paige as Axel’s estranged daughter, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Axel’s new partner, Kevin Bacon as an LAPD special-unit officer, and Mark Pellegrino.
Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley arrives on Netflix in 2024.
