Beverly Hills Cop 4 In Development … Will Eddie Murphy Return?

Published

on

Beverly Hills Cop is coming back to the big screen.

It has been confirmed that BHC 4 is currently in development, and Eddie Murphy will reprise his role as Detroit detective Axel Foley.

“Good news for fans of franchise is that the pilot tested so well, it has caused Paramount to put another #BHC movie into development,” producer Shawn Ryan tweeted.

News of the fourth installment comes on the heels of a failed attempt to turn the classic comedy into a CBS sitcom that would have starred Brandon T. Jackson. While CBS passed on the pilot, Paramount realized how well it would do as a feature film.

Are you excited for the return of Detective Foley?

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
