It seems like audiences and studios can’t make up their minds whether they want to see Axel Foley back on the streets. After the TV pilot was picked up by CBS, it was quickly dropped after positive reactions from both the studio and viewers.
Reactions so good, in fact, that they’re ditching the series and bringing Beverly Hills Cop back to the big screen for another movie. Deadline confirms the announcement and also broke the news that Eddie Murphy will return to reprise his role as Officer Foley.
Screenwriters of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are signed on to write the film, which will be released via Paramount Pictures.
