'Beverly Hills Cop 4' gets a 2016 release date; we have questions

Posted on

Beverly Hills Cops 2

Eddie Murphy hasn’t put away his badge just yet.

Paramount has set a March 25, 2016 release date for Beverly Hills Cop 4. Here’s what we know: Murphy will reprise his detective role, with Jerry Bruckheimer back to produce, and Brett Ratner sitting in the director’s chair. The script is being written by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, who were also responsible for Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.

But if there’s going to be a fourth installment of this 1980’s series, we have a few burning questions, ranked in order of importance:

– Is Bronson Pinchot returning, and, if so, is he going to bring Cousin Larry from Perfect Strangers with him?

– Can Eddie Murphy still pull off an action comedy?

– Is Judge Reinhold coming back as well — and if so, is he going to wear the pirate outfit from Fast Times at Ridgemont High?

– Will Paul Reiser return?

– Are they going to bring back this epic theme song?

Deadline first reported the news.
