(NEW YORK) — We’re getting closer to that long-rumored new Beverly Hills Cop movie.
Paramount Pictures has enlisted Belgian writer-directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to direct the long-awaited fourth installment of the series.
Deadline reports that the duo behind Black, winner of last year’s Discovery Award at the Toronto Film Festival, will join producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Eddie Murphy. Bruckheimer and Murphy have been working with Paramount to get their ducks in a row for the sequel.
El Arbi and Bilall will direct a script that’s rumored to put Murphy’s wisecracking detective Axel Foley back in Detroit where he started. I’ts said to be gritty and feature the trademark humor that generated over $735 million worldwide over three films.
Paramount hopes to get the movie started later this year or early next year. No other cast members have been announced so far.
