    Eddie Murphy Turned Brett Ratner On To The Classic Heist Films Before Making 'Tower Heist'

    And More From The Director & Cast Of The High Concept ComedyIn Brett Ratner’s “Tower Heist,” Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead an ensemble cast in a story of wronged hotel employees who decide to seek revenge against a ruthless financial world maven who has run off with their pensions. A comedy, heist flick and even a triumphant middle finger to the swindlers that put many out of house and home (though the filmmakers say the ties to current events were unintentional), the film is a crowd-pleasing confection about the little guys finally getting one over on those in authority.

    Eddie Murphy Says 'Beverly Hills Cop 4' Is Dead, But TV Series About Axel Foley's Son In The Works

    Also Says His Oscar Night Incident After Losing To Alan Arkin Was Misunderstood"We’re not close, but I’m hoping in the next few years there will be one," Brett Ratner recently told Collider about the forever in development "Beverly Hills Cop 4." "Eddie and I are even setting up some more of his ideas. I’m hoping that we have a long, fruitful relationship. We’re both still very young, believe it or not. Eddie’s only 50 years old, so I think we have a little bit of time to come up with a great 'Beverly Hills Cop.'" But it looks like the sand in the hour glass has run out as Eddie Murphy is hanging up the idea of starring in a fourth movie and i...
