Paramount Pictures has signed a one-shot license deal with Netflix to produce the fourth installment of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, and it is poised to star Eddie Murphy and its original producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Netflix intends to work with Murphy and Bruckheimer to acquire scripts and directors before financing and releasing the film on its platform. The deal, which comes with the option to create a sequel, is the third deal between Paramount and Netflix following the surprise Super Bowl spot and release of Cloverfield: God Particle and the obtaining offshore rights to 2018’s Annihilation 17 days after its theatrical debut.

This also strengths the relationship between Murphy and Netflix, who after appearing on Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee premiered in his own Netflix film Dolemite Is My Name, playing self-made blaxploitation star Rudy Ray Moore. Paramount is also working with Murphy to develop a sequel to Coming To America.

In other entertainment news, Andy Serkis will be playing the role of Alfred Pennyworth in Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
