EDDIE Murphy has hinted the much-anticipated Beverly Hills Cop 4 film will be his last, because he wants to get back to stage work.
The funnyman was an acclaimed stand-up comedian before he became a movie star, and now heâ€™s keen to return to comedy clubs and theatres.
He says, “Thirty years and I have close to 50 movies and it is like, `Why am I in the movies? Iâ€™ve done that part now.â€™
“Iâ€™ll go back to the stage and do stand-up.”
But heâ€™s still keen to get a fourth Beverly Hills Cop film made â€” after years of looking at bad scripts for the project: “The third one was horrible, so I didnâ€™t want to do another one.”
And he insists he is not making the new film in the franchise for the money.
He adds, “The (third) movie wasnâ€™t ready to be done and they (producers) wrote some s**t down on paper and I said, `Is this your phone number?â€™ and they said, `This is how much weâ€™re going to pay you.â€™
“I said, `Letâ€™s go shoot it! I donâ€™t care if the script ainâ€™t right.â€™”â€“â€“Showbizspy.
