Belgian filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (“Black”) have been set to direct the long-awaited fourth installment of the “Beverly Hills Cop” action film series at Paramount Pictures.
Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have been taking time diligently getting the project together and setting things carefully in place including this pair who will direct from a script by writers Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec.
The story will bring Eddie Murphy’s street smart cop character Axel Foley back to his Detroit origins. The film is said to have a “gritty with an irreverent humor” tone.
The first three films in the series have grossed over $735 million in global box office.
