Axel Foley from the Beverly Hills Cop series is going to be making a comeback soon. Eddie Murphy who is also working on a sequel to the classic comedy Coming to America is keeping up the momentum. Talking with Collider in an interview promoting Dolemite is My Name(Currently on Netflix), he revealed that he has yet another movie coming up that fans of his previous work can get excited about.
“Yeah that’s what we’re doing after Coming 2 America. We’re doing Beverly Hills Cop. Then the plan is to get back on stage and do stand-up. That’s what I’ll be doing mostly, is stand-up, and Beverly Hills Cop will be like – I keep saying it, these movies and Saturday Night Live is kind of like, I’m looking at it as a bookend. If I decide I just want to stay on the couch forever, I’d ended [my movie career] on a funny note.”Murphy to Collider
