Previously, it had been reported that Brett Ratner’s upcoming fourth installment to the Beverly Hills Cop might aim for a more kid friendly rating, that is, the much sought after and equally maligned PG-13. However, this can apparently be written off as a misunderstanding by MTVNews. Ratner himself recently set things straight saying:
“Dont believe everything you read on the internet. Believe me, this is going to be a hard core ‘R’ Beverly Hills Cop. I start shooting next year”
So there we have it. Axel Foley won’t be playing the role of a human Donkey cracking wise to a big green caricature. He will, instead, apparently remain the same foul mouthed pistol packing asshole of a cop, who we know and love.
While this is, of course, good news that the character will be able to be as mature as he has been in the past, we are still faced with the negative that Brett Ratner is directing. Zing!
