After Paramount replaced director Brett Ratner with Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah they’ve finally nailed down a possible production start for Eddie Murphy‘s Beverly Hills Cop 4. A new production update suggests the film will be shooting in both Axel’s native Detroit and his regular hangout Los Angeles.
Jerry Bruckheimer and Murphy will produce with a script penned by Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec.
According to IMDB, the film is already in pre-production as they’ve hired a previsualization team.
Ratner’s reported idea for his incarnation was to see Alex return to Detroit during the coldest winter on record. A summer production shoot would mean that has been reworked since his exit.
A release date hasn’t been made official but it could be ready for 2018 if it does begin shooting this summer.
