Pickier than ever before
For a while, Eddie Murphy was a major star. Anyone under the age of 40 might struggle to remember the faded star who was at one time one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars. He could combine action with comedy in a natural way, similar to the way Dwayne Johnson does nowadays but without the muscles. This guy really was a funny man who could entertain the masses on stage or screen so why don’t we hear anything about him anymore?
There are a number of reasons we don’t see him feature in movies anymore. One of those is self-inflicted as he explained on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2013. He’s getting way pickier now than ever before. That’s why Beverly Hills Cop 4 remains a work in progress. “I don’t want to do anything else that sucks ever again,” he told the show’s presenter which is why Murphy’s making sure the script for the Beverly Hills Cop sequel is “perfect” before committing to the project.
