Eddie Murphy will be reprising his iconic role as Axel Foley, and Taylour Paige has joined the cast for the adventure
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Actor Eddie Murphy and actress Taylour Paige were seen hard at work as they shot scenes for new comedy movie 'Beverly Hills Cop 4' at the courthouse in Beverly Hills. 'Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley' is an upcoming Netflix Original comedy film and the fourth installment of the 'Beverly Hills Cop' franchise; it is directed by Mark Molloy. Murphy will be reprising his iconic role as Axel Foley and the talented Taylour Paige, known for her roles in 'Zola' and 'Sharp Stick', has inked a deal to join the cast.
The Hollywood star, 61, donned the iconic Detroit Lions NFL varsity jacket over a yellow t-shirt paired with jeans as he brought Detective Axel Foley to life. He was accompanied by Paige, 32, as they both walked around the bustling set. Paige was wearing a formal gray suit with high heels and carrying a brown bucket bag. The photographs from the set represent a successful beginning for the project beset by obstacles and delays.
When the first 'Beverly Hills Cop' came out in 1984, it kickstarted Murphy's career and told the tale of a Detroit police officer who finds himself looking into significant cases in Los Angeles. In the 1987 film 'Beverly Hills Cop II', the Detroit-based officer travels to California to assist his former co-workers in their investigation into the killing of a police captain.
Detective Foley discovered that the same men who killed his boss were running a counterfeit money ring out of a theme park in Los Angeles while looking into a car theft ring in 'Beverly Hills Cop III' from 1994. In the new sequel, 'Axel Foley' continues the story of a Detroit cop who finds himself in Beverly Hills navigating his investigation through dramatic cases. Fans are excited to see Murphy back in the role of Detective Foley after two decades of false starts and Netflix taking over the production rights. The project is being helmed by Mark Molloy and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Chad Oman.
Earlier this month, Murphy agreed to pay $35,000 per month to his ex-girlfriend, Spice Girl Melanie Brown, to support their 15-year-old daughter Angel Iris. In November 2007, the comedian had an affair with Mel. In the beginning, Murphy claimed he wasn't the father, until paternity tests proved otherwise.
