Eddie Talks Beverly Hills Cop 4

It looks like Murphy is planning to forget the third Beverly Hills Cop ever happened and hopes to end the series on a high note. We get the news from the man himself thanks to the following interview with MTV:

“All I know is that it’s gonna be something that’s special. I’m not doing just, hey give me some big check and I go off [does the Foley laugh] and shoot the gun and jump over cars,” Murphy told MTV News. “Like, that’s some bullsh-t. If I do it, it’s gonna be some sh-t that’s right!”

“I’ve been in a bunch of different meetings with people, ‘Oh, we have to take Axel this way.” I ain’t seen no script yet [but] I’m not rolling out ‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’ for it to be a continuation of ‘Beverly Hills Cop III,’ which was a crock of sh-t,” Murphy said. “I wanna do a good one!”

Well I think that this is the best thing that Murphy could have said. His admission that the third film was a “crock of shit” is the kind of honesty that I appreciate and it pleases me that he genuinely seems interested in finishing the franchise off right. After a string of horrible films it’s no surprise to me that Murphy wants to end on a high note. Yesterday we heard that he has plans to retire and if they can pull this one off – it may be a fitting last hurrah.

I am more excited about Murphy’s career post BHC4, as we learned yesterday the man may return to stand up and that is something that I would be very excited to see.

  1. I liked Beverly Hills Cop 3 also. My least favorite was 2. I still liked it. But not as much as the 1st and 3rd one. If he does a 4th one he needs to do it right! He especially needs to get a better director then Brett Ratner. Because those Rush Hour movies really sucked! However Red Dragon was really good. I guess will just have to see.

  2. I didn’t hate 3 either, but I think 4 will flop if it tries to cater to a different demographic than this series intended audience. Murphy is also only talking this way (“3 sucked” and blah blah blah) because just about everything he’s been since the sex scandal with the transvestite has been SHYT and what little rep he had is gone…He NEEDS something to be a hit before he can return to stand up and sell out shows again…

  3. That doesn’t change the fact that Ratner is behind the project and wanting to do a kid-friendly version.

    Also, on a side note, I LOVED BHC 1, 2 and 3. I thought 3 was hilarious, and most people generally hate it (the George Lucas cameo was priceless). Same with 2, I liked the darker edge to it. I can understand why people don’t like 3 but I still love it.
