The Bad Boys for Life directors actually signed onto the movie before they joined the Bad Boys threequel, but while that movie has been released, there's still no sign of the fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie.
"We're still involved in that project, and there's a screenwriter now on it that's going to try to write a first draft, or a first treatment at least with the story," confirmed El Arbi.
"So we're going to see what the first version will be, but we're very excited and hope that we can work with another icon like Eddie Murphy. That'd be great."
In November 2019, it was revealed that Paramount had signed a deal with Netflix to release Beverly Hills Cop 4 on the streaming service. Jerry Bruckheimer is back as producer and, of course, Murphy will reprise his role as Axel Foley.
Netflix will work with Murphy and Bruckheimer to make the movie, with the option for a further sequel if the fourth movie does well.
"When I was a kid, it was one of my favourite movies. It was the quintessential Jerry Bruckheimer movie – a buddy-cop, humour action movie. Bad Boys is a Beverly Hills Cop kind of movie. And of course, Eddie Murphy is an idol," El Arbi continued.
Fallah added: "Yeah, he is the Godfather!"
