Eddie Murphy Will Be Back in Detroit for 'Beverly Hills Cop 4'
Rolling Stone ^ | June 27, 2014 | Ryan Reed

Posted on 07/09/2014 7:53:00 PM PDT by re_tail20

Eddie Murphy's headed back to Detroit in the upcoming fourth installment of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise. According to the Associated Press, the state of Michigan approved $13.5 million in film incentives, based on an estimated $56.6 million of filmmaker spending in the state. The film will be shot in and around Detroit, creating jobs for an estimated 352 workers, the Michigan Film Office announced on Thursday.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 – the first in the series since 1994 – will find Murphy reprising his role as police detective Axel Foley. Describing the plot, the film office says the character leaves his position in Beverly Hills "during the coldest winter on record to navigate the new rules and old enemies in one of America's most tenacious cities."

The film will be directed by Brett Ratner (who worked with Murphy on 2011's Tower Heist) and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (who produced the original 1984 Beverly Hills Cop), based on a script co-written by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol). A tentative release date is set for March 2016. (No word yet on whether the classic theme song is being revived.)

I watched Eddie Murphy Raw a few weeks ago. Hilarious. Unfortunately, comedy like that probably would get blasted these days by the “feelings” crowd and the social justice warriors.

Well he’d better hurry before the whole place is bulldozed. And 60? Well isn’t Arnie and Sly over 60 and they seem to be doing pretty good shoot-em ups.

IIRC, Raw got him kindasorta blacklisted once the PC crowd got power. I remember reading that his prior performance in that closed many doors.

Coincides with his fall from grace pretty closely.

“... one of America’s most tenacious cities.”

What the heck does that mean? Does this copy writer speak English?

Is Eddie Murphy broke?

Well, it’s about time. Eddie is only marginally funny making “family” movies. His character in “Tower Heist” was actually one of the best parts of a mediocre movie, and that was because he was playing a bit of a shady character, like his trademark roles in the old days.

I guess now his kids are all grown up so he can start dropping “f” bombs again instead of relying on fat jokes and funny faces.

Axel F is the name of that tune. I think every kid who got a Casio keyboard in the 80s learned to play that riff :)

Ummm.....wasn’t the premise for these movies that he was a policeman from Detroit on a case in Beverly Hills?
If they’re filming it in Detroit, shouldn’t they call it Detroit Policeman Not In Beverly Hills But In Detroit 4?
Ohhhhhhhh...
The Democrats are in trouble in Detroit. I see.

film incentives

When oil companies deduct business expenses, lefties scream and call them "subsidies". In truth, the above " incentives" for moviemaking are exactly what tax subsidies are.

If you like ‘80s synth music soundtracks check out “Crockett’s Theme” by Jan Hammer for the Miami Vice TV show and performed live by Kebu.

Be sure to crank up the volume on your speakers.

Those BHCop movies were hilarious, especially to a kid like me who grew up in Detroit, tho long before the 80s. The tune is cool too.

If you want to see how trashed out Detroit was when they filmed the first one back in 1983 just check out the opening scene
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fb6e2iBsRjc

and the truck chase scene.

If you are into synth 80s stuff, checkout the growing retro 80s ‘Synthwave’ scene. These kids do 80s better than a lot of the 80s guys.

Check these out:
Perturbator - “Hard Wired” “Tech Noir”
Electric Youth - “Back to you”
La Matos “The Light Again” (Feat Electric Youth)
Garth Knight - (This guy does lots of good 80s funk stuff)
Le Cassette - “Arms of Mine” “Tonight”

From there a whole world of awesome music opens up to you.

Just doing my part in spreading the love ;)

Kidding aside, there is some truly incredible stuff being done by these guys and it’s global. Lots of French and Nordic artists. Many Canadian.

More to look up

Starforce “Omniversal Oscilations”
Dynatron “Escape Velocity”
FM Attack “Dreamer”

And for a Greek chick that gives Belinda Carlyle a run for the money, check out Kristine - “Modern Love” and “Danger Zone”

For synth music (and all music IMO), Jean Michel Jarre is without peer.

This Vivaldi piece played by Patrick Rondat and Jean Michel Jarre blew me away. IMO Rondat is the greatest guitarist since Hendrix, arguably greater.

Yup. TD, Jarre, Cabaret Voltaire, Kraftwerk ... lots of the eclectic synth stuff has entered my ears over the years ;)

Also check out the BBC’s Synth Britania on you tube for a cool history tour.

The new stuff really excites me as it is in many ways ‘authentic’ but they still take it ‘modern’ at times with new tools and techniques. But even when they do it is more like ‘80s seen from an alternate timeline’ than ‘modern’ in the current pop schlock sense.

Ping to Salamander for musical interest

80s shred /neoclassical fits well with real classical ;) And the synths do nothing to take away from it either.
