A sequel to the older version wouldn’t be complete without bringing a younger generation into the mix. The film stars Joseph Gordon Levitt as Foley’s new partner (who Jerry Bruckheimer said is a wonderful heterosexual man from whom Eddie Murphy can take inspiration) and Taylour Paige as Foley’s daughter, a criminal defense attorney who draws the story into life. request, implicating her father in a new case.
Kevin Bacon is also new to the series and will play an antagonist of sorts. According to Empire, Bacon will play a Los Angeles Special Forces officer, so it’s unclear whether he’ll actually be the big bad guy or just the one who punishes Foley for not following the rules.
Is the world clamoring for another “Beverly Hills Cop” movie? I’m not entirely sure if that’s the case, but then again, most didn’t expect “Top Gun: Maverick” to be so huge. This film was also produced by Bruckheimer, and from the looks of it, it strives for a similar balance between nostalgia and fresh feelings. In an interview with Empire, Bruckheimer praised the humor and comedy in the new “Beverly Hills Cop” movie, but noted that “it’s about emotion.”
This is as vague as it gets, but I know I’d love to see another worthwhile addition to Axel Foley’s legacy.
