Eddie Murphy Says Another "Beverly Hills Cop" Movie Not Happening But TV Show In The Works

Well, this might be a downer for all you Beverly Hills Cop fans out there but it seems another franchise movie won’t be happening according to Eddie Murphy.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, he explained that none of the scripts were any good saying…”None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn’t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong.”

However, he does go on to say a tv show might be in the works instead. “What I’m trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit. I’d do the pilot, show up here and there,” he said.

I have to say I definitely agree with Murphy on this. If it doesn’t work you shouldn’t force it. The tv show idea may have to grow on me but if he appears in it, it could win me over. What do you think?
