Eddie Murphy is one of those people with popular track records when it comes to making a huge/wide known movies which ends up being panned which is why his condition for making another Beverly Hills Cop movie makes complete sense.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone the actor revealed that he won’t appear in the next movie if the script isn’t right but that’s not the part has has people talking it’s where he says he won’t act in a movie just for money that gets people’s attention. Here’s the excerpt from his interview – “They’re still trying to get that script right. I’m not doing a Beverly Hills Cop unless they have a really incredible script. I’ve read a couple things that look like they can make some paper. But I’m not doing a shitty movie just to make some paper. The shit got to be right.”
Murphy no doubt remembers the terrible 3rd movie and would want to make sure he doesn’t appear in another lackluster film so this is understandable but then again we all know Eddie is always well paid in movies even when it turns out to be a “sh*tty movie”.
