Eddie Murphy set for role in The Pick Up

Eddie Murphy Should Play a Role in ‘The Pick Up’

The ‘You People’ actor could be set to join the cast of the movie that Amazon Studios is in final talks to acquire.

Tim Story is attached to direct the picture based on a script written by Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider and insiders say the perspective of the elements drove the bidding for the script to seven figures.

Sources described it as a “Bad Boys” style heist comedy, with Murphy set to play a character who falls in love with a woman and gets embroiled in an attempted heist.

Burrows and Mider’s most recent script, ‘Shots! Blows! Shots! ‘, was picked up by Universal with Jason Momoa set to star and produce with Dan Lin.

Eddie, 61, is set to return as Axel Foley in the new film ‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley’ and explained that the involvement of producer Jerry Bruckheimer convinced him to return for the fourth film in the franchise .

The ‘Coming to America’ actor told MarkMeets, “Jerry Bruckheimer, the original producer. When he got involved and started developing the script, he knew what ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ was meant to be.

“When he started playing again, that’s when everything started to fall into place. Because we tried for years and years, maybe 10, 12 years, and I must have read five or six different scripts, and it never worked. The studio was like, ‘Let’s go. It’s here.’ It was like, ‘That’s just not it.’

Eddie added, “Jerry Bruckheimer came back into that, and he knows his shit, and he set it up. He did it (‘Top Gun: Maverick’) last year, and ‘Bad Boys ” is Jerry Bruckheimer.

“So we have the same mastermind behind ‘Beverly Hills Cop,’ and he put all the pieces in place for us to make a great movie. And I’m glad people see it.

Eddie will then play in: Candy Cane Lane, Triplets, Beverly Hills Cop 4.
