After almost thirty years since the release of Beverly Hills Cop III, the Eddie Murphy-starring film franchise is all set to add a fourth film. Murphy will return to reprise his role. The action-comedy film franchise launched Murphy to stardom in the 80s. The story of each of the films follows Axel Foley (Murphy), a street-smart cop from Detroit, who ends up in Beverly Hills to solve his cases for different reasons. The first film, which was released in 1984, grossed over $316 million and was followed by two more sequels.
