Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke to ComingSoon.net about the potential upcoming installment in the Beverly Hills Cop franchise.
Bonaventura told the site:
“‘Happening’ would be too strong a word, but we are working on a take,” he told us. “We have not hired a writer yet, but we’ve been analyzing the franchise and asking lots and lots of people about Alex Foley. ‘What do you love about Axel and what would you want to see with an Axel Foley movie?’ I think we have enough information now that we’ll probably be hiring a writer in the next four to eight weeks and taking a good shot at it.”
And what of Murphy returning to the main role?:
“It’s one of his favorite characters and as he told me, it’s a character that his fans come up to him often and mention to him. ‘When are you going to do Axel? What about Axel?’ In a way for me, it’s less ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ and more Axel Foley what I get excited about.”
