Beverly Hills Cop 4: Netflix Drops First Trailer for Eddie Murphy Legacy Sequel and Reveals New, Shortened Title

Axel Foley is back on the beat in the first teaser for Netflix’s Beverly Hills Cop 4.

Previously titled Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley, the Summer 2024 release will now be titled… Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F. The legacy sequel, headlined by Eddie Murphy, comes 30 years after Beverly Hills Cop III.

As previously reported, Murphy will be joined by fellow returnees Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Paul Reiser and Bronson Pinchot. Franchise newcomers include Kevin Bacon as an LAPD special-unit officer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Foley’s new partner, and Taylour Paige (Hit the Floor

) as Foley’s criminal defense attorney daughter. When her life is threatened, “she and Foley team up with a new partner (Levitt) and old pals Billy Rosewood (Reinhold) and John Taggart (Ashton) to turn up the heat and uncover a conspiracy,” according to the official logline.

The original Beverly Hills Cop followed Murphy’s rule-bending Detroit police detective as he ventured to Los Angeles to investigate the murder of a longtime friend. It went on to gross $234 million at the U.S. box office, making it the highest-grossing domestic release of 1984, and received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay in 1985.

That was followed by two sequels: 1987’s Beverly Hills Cop II and 1994’s Beverly Hills Cop III.

CBS previously attempted to being the Beverly Hills Cop franchise back by way of a 2013 pilot that starred Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder) as Axel Foley’s son, Aaron. The pilot reportedly tested well but ultimately died on the vine because Murphy refused to make recurring appearances on the show.

Eleven years later, he’ll reprise Axel in Netflix’s highly anticipated lega-sequel.
