Netflix Buys the Rights to Make a BEVERLY HILLS COP Sequel with Eddie Murphy

By: John M Jerva

Well this was unexpected to a point but with Disney+ and everyone else getting into the streaming wars, Netflix is doing all it can to keep people vested in their service. With that in mind, it has been revealed that the original pioneer in streaming has just acquired the rights from Paramount Pictures to make the long delayed fourth Beverly Hills Cop sequel with Eddie Murphy set time star and Jerry Bruckheimer in line to produce.

The big news comes via The Hollywood Reporter and it makes sense as Netflix has been shelling out bucket loads of cash to make cinema worthy feature films with big name stars as the wars heat up to win audiences over.

Paramount had planned to make the fourth film with Murphy and even had a release date set for March 25th, 2016 but pulled it from their schedule. The deal between Paramount and Netflix is a one time license deal allowing Netflix to make the film and adding a heavyweight like Bruckheimer is solid gold.

No other details are public right now but expect all that to change with the new info coming out today. Keep it locked and loaded right here for more 411!
