It was first mentioned by producer Shawn Ryan the other week, now further details have emerged about a fourth "Beverly Hills Cop" movie.

As previously stated, attempts to revive the franchise as a TV series failed when CBS passed on it and no other network wanted to pick it up.

Yet, with very strong audience test scores for the pilot, Paramount Pictures have opted instead to put another film in development.

Now, it has been reported that "Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol" scribes Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec have been hired to pen the script.

Eddie Murphy is reportedly set to return as wise-cracking cop Axel Foley nearly twenty years after the third outing.
