The project is not Beverly Hills Cop 4, as Murphy has said recently that he’s not interested in tacking on another sequel to the seminal action-comedy. However, that hasn’t stopped Brett Ratner from telling everyone that he would love to direct the imaginary film.
For better or worse, Murphy and Ratner have developed something of a partnership, as Ratner is directing the Oscars, with Murphy signed on to host, and Murphy will be a voice in Ratner’s upcoming animated Honk Kong Phooey film.
With all these projects in the pipeline, it’s pretty easy to not be excited about a fourth teaming of the two, but let’s smile anyway and let them enjoy this moment.
“That’s terrific guys!”
