Netflix Gain Licenses From Paramount To Make ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ Sequel With Eddie Murphy

Paramount has made a one-time deal with Netflix so that the streaming service and mass production company can work with Eddie Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer to create the eagerly awaited Beverly Hills Cop sequel. The franchise began back in 1984 and has been left in bed since 1994 when the last instalment was created.

The two companies will both gain plenty from the deal – with Paramount sure to rack up the intakes of the household comedy name while Netflix gets to work with big star Eddie Murphy once more. The actor previously worked with the streamer on Dolemite Is My Name where he played Rudy Ray Moore. There are also discussions taking place that he may return to the stage to an open mic for the first time since the 1980s – the difference being that his appearance will only be available to Netflix users this time.

This marks the third deal for the production companies after Netflix acquired rights to the Cloverfield franchise. We will provide more details as they arise.
