Poll: Funniest Eddie Murphy Quote

It's been 22 years since Eddie Murphy cleaned up the streets as Axel Foley in Beverly Hills Cop III (1994), but fans of the foul-mouth Detroit police detective finally get their next sequel in 2018.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 (????) will be directed by up-and-coming Belgian writer-director duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, winners of the Toronto Film Festival in 2015 for their all-black gangsta drama Black (2015). However, this will be their first action-comedy. The producer is Jerry Bruckheimer.
