The Michigan Film Office has announced that Paramount Pictures' "Beverly Hills Cop 4" has been approved for a film incentive from the state. Shooting is expected to take place in Detroit and surrounding communities in late 2014/early 2015 ahead of the movie's March 2016 release.
Brett Ratner directs and Jerry Bruckheimer produces the new entry which takes Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy), who has been living a cushy life as a Beverly Hills Detective, back to Detroit during the coldest winter on record to navigate the new rules and old enemies in one of America's most tenacious cities.
The Beverly Hills Cop production was approved for an estimated rebate of $13.5 million based on up to $56.6 million of projected in-state expenditures. The project is expected to employ approximately 352 Michigan workers during the film's shoot, with a full time equivalent of 318 jobs.
