Writers Attached To Beverly Hills Cop 4

beverly hills cop 4 Writers Attached To Beverly Hills Cop 4Earlier this summer, Paramount Pictures officially announced Beverly Hills Cop 4 would grace the silver screen. This despite the fact that they had yet to hire screenwriters and didn’t even have a story in place. They only had Eddie Murphy signed on to return and Brett Ratner was “in negotiations” to direct.

Cut to a few months later, and we now  have screenwriters, ladies and germs!

Michael Brandt and Derek Haas (i.e. the screenwriting duo behind 3:10 to Yuma and Wanted) have been officially hired after submitting an outline/treatment that was given the thumbs up by studio big-wigs, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Ratner and Murphy himself.

I guess this takes Brandt and Haas out of Wanted 2 despite earlier reports.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 will begin filming next year for a Summer 2010 release.

  1. why does it take them out of the Wanted 2 thing? There’s no timeline on that yet, I don’t see why they can’t do both. And really neither of these projects has even started pre-production.

    I’m glad they got high-class writers though, I liked both of those film and both were pretty well-written.

    I think a movie like this is something Ratner can direct (comedy-action flicks)

  2. It all depends on the script for me.
    So, write a good one guys !

  3. The first two films were great. They had good scripts and it was before Eddie went on his family movie kick. I don’t think we need to even talk about how bad the third film was do we? Film the movie in Detroit, have the two cops from Beverly Hills come out there on a case and let it roll from there. Take the franchise back to basics and this should do well at the box office.

  4. eddie murphys comedic timing in the movies he did before he stopped doing stand up.after he stopped stand up it went down hill.compare the first 48 hours with the second 48 hours and you should see what i mean.and that is before eddie murphy went the family film route.

    the first 2 beverly hills cop movies were great.the third was soso.15 years later with the new eddie murphy image i cant see it working.
