Eddie Murphy Out Of Beverly Hills Cop 4 & In Trump Heist

We have just discovered that comedic actor Eddie Murphy is not going to do Beverly Hill Cop 4, regardless of the internet rumors that are floating around. The reason is plainly simple; Murphy does not like the script. We can say that Director Brett Ratner is working with some writers to work the script to make another pitch to Murphy, but so far that door is closed.

We can also say that Murphy loves the new script from Ratner titled Trump Heist (the movie that we mentioned months ago and is a Universal film). Murphy has agreed to star in that film as Ratner is currently trying to surround Murphy with a great cast, with actors like Sidney Poitier, Chris Tucker, and Chris Rock just to name a few. So far, no one but Murphy has agreed to star in the film but word is that Rock is officially close to signing on as well.

Trump Heist has been pitched as an urban version of Ocean’s 11, and is about the employees of the Trump Tower in New York who conspire to rip off the building's residents.

Stay tuned, as we will have more news on this story as it develops.
