The “Tira da Pesada” trilogy is a favorite among crime comedy fans, thanks to Eddie Murphy’s iconic performance as Axel Foley.
As a new movie has already been confirmed by the star, fans are increasingly eager to hear from the production.
During an interview with Desus & Mero, Murphy brought up the topic and gave some details on the development of the sequence.
“We’ve been trying to make another movie in the franchise for 15 years. But things are moving forward now. Netflix is in control, man. We are already trying to develop a suitable script. That’s our main focus for now. So we’re not going to do anything until the script is ready. “
The star also recalled the time he first brought Police Officer Foley to life and said it was from there that he found out he was born to act.
“It’s funny to take over that role because I was 22 when I was called, you know? I thought it was an amazing adventure, I didn’t feel pressured, it was so natural … When you are young you think everything will be fine and you dive straight. That’s why I fell in love with the theater. I was already an actor, but it was my first meaningful role. I owe everything to this frankness.
Recalling that the sequel will be the result of an agreement between Paramount Pictures and Netflix.
In addition, “Heavy Cop 4” will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, famous for his work on crime dramas, such as “CSI”, “Cold Case” and “Without a Trace”.
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (“Bad Boys Forever”) are expected to take over.
During an interview with Collider, they were asked about the matter and Fallah mentioned that Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer of the franchise, offered them the job.
“Jerry Bruckheimer asked if we could focus on the sequel. Now, if he needs it, we’re ready for it. “
Paramount initially kicked off the franchise in 1984, with the first film directed by Martin Brest, which gave birth to Tony Scott in the sequel, released in 1987. In 1994, John Landis took over, marking the end of the trilogy.
In total, the trilogy grossed US $ 712 million raised worldwide.
