No No no more Beverly Hills Cop movie

Eddie Murphy himself actually approached Paramount with the idea of reviving the franchise and reprising his role as Detroit detective Axel Foley. Maybe that’s because he’s on a downward spiral and is trying every last option? Apparently Paramount caved to his demands and has brought on Lorenzo di Bonaventura, of Transformers and G.I. Joe, to produce. Jerry Bruckheimer actually produced the original three, release in 1984, 1987, and 1994, but has absolutely no involvement in this revival. A writer has not been hired yet. Paramount plans to release this in the summer of 2010.

Last, Sex and the City is number one spot at North American with an estimated $55.7M on opening weekend. According to studio research, Friday’s audience was a whopping 85% female with Saturday’s crowd coming down only slightly from that figure. Opening day was dominated by groups of women going together just as males often do for a new Star Wars or super hero film.
