Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Paul Reiser and Bronson Pinchot have signed on to reprise their roles in the Netflix action-comedy, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley. The actors will reunite with Eddie Murphy for film, in production now, with Jerry Bruckheimer producing. Further details of the plot are being kept under wraps.
Reiser tweeted along with the casting announcement: “Hey… anything I can do to help Eddie Murphy’s career, happy to oblige.”
The original 1984 blockbuster, Beverly Hills Cop, starred Murphy as Foley, a streetwise Detroit police officer investigating the murder of his best friend in the posh California city. Reiser, Reinhold and Ashton played detectives Jeffrey Friedman, Billy Rosewood and John Taggert respectively. Pinchot played art gallery worker Serge. The movie spawned two sequels, released in 1987 and 1994.
