Beverly Hills Cop 4 to film in Detroit
« on: June 27, 2014, 09:40:12 am »
I wonder if they need some location scouts, script consultants, bit players..
Hmm.. so this plot will "reverse" the setting-- LOL-- Well, Axel, I hope you like potholes...  ;)

A newest  sequel to "Beverly Hills Cop", starring Eddie Murphy, will get an estimated estimated $13.5 million in funding from the Michigan Film Office for filming in the state.

The film, directed by Brett Ratner and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer for Paramount Pictures. is expected to be released in 2016.

In announcing the funding, the agency said Thursday that  the "rebate" is based upon  $56,644,792 of projected in-state expenditures. The state film agency said the project is expected to employ approximately 352 Michigan workers during the film’s shoot, with a full time equivalent of 318 jobs.

“We are excited to welcome Axel Foley and the Beverly Hills Cop franchise back to Michigan,” Margaret O’Riley, director of the Michigan Film Office, said in a statement. “This project will highlight locations throughout metro Detroit that speak to the city’s heritage while making significant investments in the community by hiring Michigan workers and local businesses.”

The state film agency describes the upcoming movie this way:

The newest installment of Beverly Hills Cop, from the ultimate "fish-out-of-water" franchise, takes Axel Foley, who has been living a cushy life as a Beverly Hills Detective, back to Detroit during the coldest winter on record to navigate the new rules and old enemies in one of America's most tenacious cities.

Sounds interesting...

Especially, since Brett Ratner is one of my favorite comedy/action directors!  Absolutely, love the 'Rush Hour' series!  8)
