A couple years ago, word hit that Eddie Murphy wanted to make 'Beverly Hills Cop 4' with the oh-so-beloved Brett Ratner directing. This would-be sequel was supposed to be filmed in 2009 and hit screens this year. Obviously, it didn't happen. No Axel Foley. No iconic laugh.

That might be because of the confusing back and forth that followed the sequel's announcement. There were reports that it would be for kids, that the script was really crappy and even news that the fourth installment would morph a dark, unrelated screenplay where everyone dies into a 'Beverly Hills Cop' movie. Murphy and Ratner weren't exactly instilling confidence with their plan, and in the wake of the much maligned 'BH3,' some fan love is necessary.

Now Ratner still wants to do the project, but not any time soon.
