The fourth installment of Beverly Hills Cop is currently filming right now. We learned last week that Judge Reinhold, Paul Reiser, Bronson Pinchot, and John Ashton are coming back to reprise their roles from the original films alongside Eddie Murphy. They’ll be joined by Joseph Gordon Levitt and Taylour Paige. Now, we’ve learned that Kevin Bacon has joined the film in an unannounced role. The movie is titled Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley and it comes to us from Netflix.
We reported a couple of months ago about the plot for the film, and the film will see Axel Foley return to Beverley Hills once again. After he gets a phone call from an old friend about his estranged daughter, Jane, Foley makes new enemies and teams up with his daughter and her ex-boyfriend, Detective Bobby Tapia. Once there, he takes on drug cartels and a conspiracy inside the Beverly Hills Police Department.
Mark Malloy is the director of the movie with a script from Will Beall. There’s no release date yet for the film, but it’s currently slated for 2023. It was originally slated for 2019 but moved from Paramount to Netflix. Murphy is in a sort of career renaissance lately with Coming 2 America, My Name Is Dolemite, and now this.
