Paramount has announced (via ERC Box Office) that ‘Beverly Hills Cop 4′ will hit theaters on March 25, 2016. Eddie Murphy will return to the famous role of Axel Foley under the direction of Brett Ratner.

Last year a TV series, featuring Brandon T. Jackson in the leading role of Axel Foley’s son was developed but ultimately did not get past the pilot stage. The Production however did spark the studio into getting the 4th installment created again.

Original Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is also said to be involved in the production.

Bruckheimer said of ‘Beverly Hills Cop 4′:

Paramount is very excited about making it, Eddie is very excited, Brett Ratner is excited about doing it, so I think we’re moving forward. Hopefully we’ll start end of summer, beginning of fall and get rolling on it. We’re going to take Eddie back to Detroit – he’s going to be in Beverly Hills and we take him to Detroit. So we’re going to have some fun with him, he’s really excited about doing it.
