This is not a joke, people. Eddie Murphy has once again found work in Hollywood, and it only took a franchise going dormant for twenty years in order for it to happen.

Following a story we brought you last week, Eddie Murphy has officially signed on to star in a fourth installment of the once popular Beverly Hills Cop franchise. Murphy will reprise his role as Axel Foley opposite new recruit (and Tropic Thunder star) Brandon T Jackson, who will appear in the film as Murphy’s yet-to-be-named son. According to Deadline, the studio has set scripting duo of Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake) to begin a draft.

Beverly Hills Cop launched in 1984 with the story of a wise-cracking Detroit cop who relocated to California. Tony Scott and John Landis played a role in bringing the sequels to life, but it is unclear at this time who will helm the fourth installment. Comment below and let us know if you have any interest in revisiting the world of Beverly Hills Cop.
