Planning on Retiring, Eddie Murphy Slammed Down 'Beverly Hills Cop IV'


Revealing his plan on retiring from the movie industry, the star of the forthcoming 'Meet Dave' let out that he won't be involved in the latest 'Beverly Hills Cop' movie.

Earlier, media was made frenzy with Paramount Pictures' inclination of developing the fourth "Beverly Hills Cop" series. But, less than two months after any reports concerning "Beverly Hills Cop IV" hit, a demeaning news came in stating that its star, Eddie Murphy, won't take any part in the latest installment of the action comedy.

Sharing his future plan with Extra TV, the famed comedian reasoned his goodbye bid to the movie series that played a part in boosting his career in Hollywood was made due to the condition of the movie which he claimed as unready to be done. He further confessed that he had agreed to come back for the third "BHC" only because at the time he was offered a large sum of money gushing, "They said this is how much we're going to pay you. I said, 'let's go shoot it! I don't care if the script ain't right'."

On the occasion, the Academy Award-nominated actor also gushed that he is now ready to retire from the movie biz. "I have close to fifty movies and it's like, why am I in the movies?" revealed the "Dreamgirls" actor, "I've done that part now. I'll go back to the stage and do standup."

UPDATE 07/01/08: Though being left by its leading actor, it still seems that "BHC IV" will continue on. The follow-up movie still has director Brett Ratner to helm the project with Lorenzo di Bonaventura to produce. It has been rumored to be aimed for younger audience and is scheduled to be released in 2010.
