Movie News: Eddie Murphy Back as Axel Foley

With the Beverly Hills Cop television series officially dead in the water, the studio is apparently prepping a fourth movie with Eddie Murphy back as the star. This is actually quite surprising. From what we've heard, the pilot tested very well. But, for some reason they've decided to scrap the show and are moving forth with another long overdue, not needed sequel to the decades old franchise.

Does Murphy still have what it takes to be funny? Can he lead this dead franchise in a new direction that will cash in at the box office? I really hope so. Beverly Hills Cop III was a major disaster for the studio. I'm not really sure they can breath any new life in this especially with a younger audience that won't remember the character. But, we're about to find out.

In the mean's Bob Seger.
