Murphy Retiring? Cop Naughty?

“Meet Dave” star Eddie Murphy tells Extra that he’s considering retirement.

Murphy says “I have close to fifty movies and it’s like, why am I in the movies?” he said, adding, “I’ve done that part now. I’ll go back to the stage and do standup.”

What does that mean for the currently in-development “Beverly Hills Cop 4”? He doesn’t want to be a part of it because “the movie wasn’t ready to be done.”

Latino Review meanwhile talked with ‘Cop’ director Brett Ratner who says “this is going to be a hard core ‘R’ Beverly Hills Cop. I start shooting next year.”
