While I really don't like to watch movies I do love to watch the Bad Boys and Beverley Hills Cop series.

And it looks like I can look forward to another of each both of them in 2010 I believe.

Eddie Murphy to star in Beverley Hills Cop 4.

First Indiana Jones made a box office comeback, now Eddie Murphy is returning in a new Beverly Hills Cop movie.
Murphy is set to revive the franchise 14 years after his last outing as Axel Foley.

The 47-year-old actor will reprise his role as the wise-cracking detective in a fourth instalment.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 is scheduled to begin production next year in anticipation of a summer 2010 release.

Brett Ratner, whose previous credits include X Men: The Last Stand and the Rush Hour action trilogy, is in negotiations to direct.

Murphy approached Paramount Pictures with the idea of revisiting the franchise, according to Variety.

Paramount knows the value of reviving a winning formula - Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has just taken £157 million at the box office in its opening weekend, close to a box office record.

The original Beverly Hills Cop film was released in 1984 and turned Murphy into one of the world's most bankable stars. It was the third film of his career, following 48 Hours and Trading Places, and took $316 million at the box office.

The second film in 1987 was similarly lucrative, but the last instalment in 1994 was a critical and commercial flop.

Since then, Murphy has enjoyed mixed fortunes in his acting career.

His successes, including Eighties comedy Coming to America and the animated Shrek series, in which he voices a donkey, have been matched by a series of critical disasters such as Norbit. But his performance in Dreamgirls surprised many, earning him a 2007 Oscar nomination.

Murphy's private life has kept him in the headlines of late.

Last year he fathered a baby by Spice Girl Melanie Brown but demanded a DNA test to prove paternity. He is not believed to have any contact with his daughter, Angel Iris.

Bad Boys 3 coming too possibly.

Last night Hollyscoop caught up with "Bad Boys" Director Michael Bay on the red carpet at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards. Considering the fact that Will Smith was just a couple feet away, we couldn’t help but ask if Bad Boys 3 would ever see the light of day.

Michael said “I don’t know. We talk about it, but we all make too much money.” Luckily Will Smith joined our conversation when he heard us pressing for another Bad Boys movie. Will joked, “Bad Boys 3, I got an idea, I so have a great idea…I can't pitch it here.” He added, “Jayden, we just watched the opening of Bad Boys 2 last night and I was telling him that is the best opening, you can’t open a movie better than that opening sequence of Bad Boys 2. “

Finally Will admitted that we “need Bad Boys 3" but said it might not happen since "Michael is too expensive now, he’s way too expensive.” Seems like the only things stopping this project is the cash, but we think if Will and Michael get together, any studio will pay the right price. Just remember, if this deal goes through its thank to Hollyscoop! Check out our exclusive interview below.

I am actually excited for em to come out. I am looking forward to more details.

These both sound terrible. I'd like to see something original every once in awhile. What was the last movie Eddie Murphy was in where he wasn't a cop or in a fat suit?

He was nominated for an Academy Award for Dreamgirls, which came out at the end of 2006.......
