‘BEVERLY HILLS COP’: Fourth Film Gets Directing Duo

Gotta love Hollywood, where certain projects never die. It’s been 22 years since BEVERLY HILL COPS III hit the big screen, and since then, rumors of a fourth one have been non-stop, albeit fruitless. A couple years ago, they went so far as to create a TV pilot that starred Eddie Murphy, but at the end of the day, the network felt that unless Murphy’s role was recurring, they weren’t going to follow through with a full series. 

“They had this little knob that you turn [during test screenings] if you like it or you don’t like it,” Murphy told Playboy last year. “So when Axel shows up in the pilot, some people turned the knob so much, they broke it. So the network decided ‘if he isn’t recurring, then this isn’t gonna happen.’ So it didn’t happen.”

So in one fell swoop, the TV show disappeared. But it seems like they haven’t given up on a fourth film, and have even gone so far as to hire a directing duo, Deadline reports.

According to the outlet, Paramount has hired Belgian directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who are best known for their film BLACK. The pair had met with Eddie Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and had a youthful energy Murphy and Bruckheimer felt the fourth film in a franchise needed. Arbi and Fallah will be directing a script written by Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec, which promises to bring back Murphy’s character Axel Foley and be as gritty and irreverent as the original.

While this film is sure to be a big step up from the directors in terms of budget, it’s worth checking out the trailer to BLACK just to see what they’re capable of. Have a look below!
