Following on from news we heard earlier this year, in which Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney parted ways following the release of The Lone Ranger, we heard over the weekend that Bruckheimer is closing a three-year first-look deal with Paramount.
Deadline reports that Bruckheimer will enjoy a lot more freedom with the deal, being able to take projects elsewhere if needs be, something he couldn’t do at The Mouse House. He also cites Paramount’s handling of the Brad Pitt-starrer World War Z as one of the things that impressed him about them, juggling the bad press amidst lengthy re-shoots and still coming out well over the top at the box office.
That is something that Disney wasn’t able to do with The Lone Ranger, announcing the need to write down as much as $190m. from losses on the film, which I still maintain has been one of »

While we're on the subject of belated action comedy sequels, there's a new/old game afoot at Paramount. Recently cut loose from his erstwhile home at Disney, super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer has rocked up to a new deal at Paramount. First among his first-looks is the long-gestating fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie. Eddie Murphy has already signed on to return to his signature role as Axel Foley, and Brett Ratner - who's been on board since at least 2008 - is attached to direct.Last we heard, Beverly Hills Cop was being retooled as a TV series, under the aegis of The Shield's Shawn Ryan. Barry Sonnenfeld directed a pilot that starred Brandon T. Jackson as Foley's son, with Murphy cameoing to hand over the reins and Kevin Pollak as a Beverly Hills Pd lawyer. CBS declined to pick it up for a series, however. Jackson claimed it was because the »

Hollywood mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who’s had a lucrative run with Disney for many years now, has moved on. According to Deadline, the Pirates of The Caribbean producer has signed a deal that would bring his Bruckeimer Films shingle to Paramount with a three-year first-look agreement. The man’s films have grossed over $16 billion over the years, and he’s known for loving “big” movies- ie. blockbusters, tentpoles, action/effects-heavy sagas. His last one, though, didn’t fair so well. The Lone Ranger was a commercial and critical failure for Disney, but it’s unlikely that’s the only reason their relationship ended.
Bruckheimer told Deadline, “I have a lot more freedom than at Disney.” He’s seemingly referring to the fact that Paramount will give him more leg room to set up projects elsewhere, where as his deal with Disney didn’t allow for that. He’s also said »

Plans for a Beverly Hills Cop TV series failed after CBS passed on the idea earlier this year, despite word that the pilot tested so well, that it has caused Paramount to put another Beverly Hills Cop movie into development. News of a 4th Bhc movie were first confirmed in July, when it was announced that Eddie Murphy would reprise his role as Axel Foley. And it now looks like the film is being fast-tracked by Paramount Pictures, in a new 3-year deal the studio signed with super producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Beverly Hills Cop 4 will be the first project made under this new deal, which brings both Bruckheimer and Paramount together again (they launched the franchise together, along with »

The title comes via a tweet from Production Weekly. Regarding its veracity, there is no confirmation or denial at this point.
Meanwhile, Jerry Bruckheimer has confirmed that the upcoming Eric Bana-led supernatural thriller "Beware the Night" has been retitled "Deliver Us from Evil". Bana plays an NYPD cop who begins investigating cases involving demonic posessions, werewolves and other supernatural occurences.
Of the project, Bruckheimer says: "I just finished a picture at Screen Gems, which turned out terrific. It's a very hard R-rated movie, a paranormal thriller. It's a new genre that I never approached, not in this vein. It's low-budget for me. I loved experiencing something completely different."

Finally, a bit of good news for those in favor of arming Eddie Murphy and unleashing him on unaware California residents. Jerry Bruckheimer, the megaproducer behind the Pirates of the Caribbean films and so many Michael Bay productions, has decided upon his new post-Disney partner, and it is Paramount Pictures. Many giganto-huge blockbusters will surely stem from this new partnership, but the first are to be Top Gun 2 and a Beverly Hills Cop reboot. Both have been talked about for years, but now 26 years later we’re finally on track to see an aged Tom Cruise ejecting himself from a series of aircraft — and yes, according to Deadline, both Cruise and Murphy are set to return to these new installments. It’s the same old story. Movie was popular several decades ago. Now it’s being redone. But the difference here is Bruckheimer, who was a producer and major creative force on both the original Top Gun »

Eddie Murphy is officially set to reprise his role as Detroit cop Axel Foley, and according to the report, "Foley will be returning to his Detroit roots." I enjoyed the original Beverly Hills Cop movies, and I hope they go for that R-rated kind of action-comedy again. I'm not a fan of Ratner, but these are the kinds of films he's known for making, »

Jerry Bruckheimer's time at Disney is now officially over, with the long-standing deal between the two finally ended. This follows what had largely been a successful period of time, although the financial disappointment of The Lone Ranger this year - not an outright flop, but still an underperformer - may have brought things to a head. It followed one or two other disappointments - Prince Of Persia, The Sorceror's Apprentice - outside of the juggernaut that's been the Pirates Of The Caribbean series.
Bruckheimer is a man still in demand though, and Paramount has now brought the producer back to the studio where he got his start. The pair have inked a three year deal wthat will start with Beverly Hills Cop 4, »

We all have favourite directors, producers or writers of film. We’re all familiar with the works of Steven Spielberg or George Lucas, Stanley Kubrick or Alfred Hitchcock. We’re fans of Quentin Tarantino and James Cameron, and can name the works of Tim Burton and Ridley Scott. We know of Jerry Bruckheimer or Peter Jackson, M Night Shyamalan and Guillermo del Toro. In short, we all recognise the big names who give us films. But one name which may not sound so familiar, is that of Luc Besson.
Luc Besson is a director, producer and writer of film. He was born in 1959, in the French city of Paris to scuba-diving parents, and grew up in the Mediterranean, travelling off the coasts of Italy, Greece and Yugoslavia . He did not initially want to become involved with cinema, intending instead to become a marine biologist. But at the age of 17, he »

After he failed to develop Beverly Hills Cop as a TV show, last we heard, Eddie Murphy had signed up to star in a fourth Bhc movie. According to Deadline, it will be the first project Jerry Bruckheimer will develop under his new deal with Paramount.

Celebrity break-ups are something of a guilty pleasure to look in on, and one of this years’s biggest separations was that of long-term couple Jerry Bruckheimer and Walt Disney Studios. In the wake of The Lone Ranger bombing spectacularly at the box office, it was announced that Bruckheimer and Disney would be going their separate ways after 20 years in business.
Bruckheimer’s Disney legacy includes the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which has been extremely lucrative for the company so far in a trend that seems set to continue when Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is released in 2016. Bruckheimer has no doubt been ...
