Eddie Murphy’s ‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’ is Stuck in Development Hell!

Eddy Murphy’s Beverly Hills Cop 4′ is stuck in development hell. According to The Wrap, Paramount has taken the ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ sequel off its release schedule, which means the movie is still in production.

From The Wrap:

Eddie Murphy‘s comeback vehicle will have to wait a little while longer, as Paramount has takenBrett Ratner‘s “Beverly Hills Cop 4” off its release schedule, a studio insider with knowledge of the situation has told TheWrap.

It was just more than one year ago that Paramount announced it would release “Beverly Hills Cop 4” on March 25, 2016. While the film remains in development, it has not moved forward as quickly as Paramount originally envisioned, though recent movement in the studio’s executive suites has complicated matters.

The delay may actually be a good thing. ‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’ was expected to premiere the same weekend as ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’.

Earlier this year, Eddie Murphy told Rolling Stone that script concerns were the primary reason behind the continued delay.

“They[‘re] still trying to get that script right. I’m not doing a ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ unless they have a really incredible script. I’ve read a couple things that look like they can make some paper, but I’m not doing a shitty movie just to make some paper. The shit got to be right,” said Murphy.
