Axel Foley

I’m sure Brett Ratner is a nice enough guy. But watching his movies has been clinically proven to cause acute cerebral hemorrhaging in lab rats. Oddly enough, Ratner’s films also cure fecal impaction, but that’s neither here no there.

The latest discovery from the Ratner camp is that he’s planning to direct a *cough* long-awaited fourth installment of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, starring Eddie Murphy. That’s according to MTV Movies, which also reports Ratner wants to make the new Beverly Hills Cop more kid-friendly.

Quoth the Ratner: “10-year-old kids, 12-year-old kids don’t really know the old Beverly Hills Cop. So it’s an opportunity to make it new for kids. The same way it felt for me watching Beverly Hills Cop when I was a kid, that’s what I want to do for kids today.”

Maybe we won’t get to see Murphy, as officer Axel Foley, drop a bajillion variations on the F-bomb. But, he might just pull a Norbit/Nutty Professor and play a bajillion different characters in fat suits. ‘Cause that shit never gets old, yo.
