I know you all started mentally humming the Axel F. theme when you read that headline, regardless of if you'd actually pay money to go see a movie called Beverly Hills Cop 4, so let's keep this short and sweet: A source of questionable veracity (London's The Sun) has indicated that animated ass extraordinaire Eddie Murphy will indeed show up to get paid for a third sequel in the Beverly Hills Cop franchise.

This series would make for one heckuva flaccid line graph:

Beverly Hills Cop (1984) -- $234 million in domestic box office -- and people liked it.
Beverly Hills Cop 2 (1987) -- $154 million -- and people tolerated it.
Beverly Hills Cop 3 (1994) -- $43 million -- and people pretty much hated it.

So now comes word that a new Axel adventure is on the horizon. Who would you get to direct the thing? (My vote is for McG ... or Woody Allen.) And would you have Murphy saying stuff like "I'm gettin' too old for this #@%*!" before kicking into that weird, braying laugh of his?
