Eddie Murphy Hints At Retirement

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 he’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? I’ve done that part now.’

“I’ll go back to the stage and do stand-up.”

But he’s still keen to get a fourth Beverly Hills Cop film made — after years of looking at bad scripts for the project: “The third one was horrible, so I didn’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 wasn’t ready to be done and they (producers) wrote some s**t down on paper and I said, `Is this your phone number?’ and they said, `This is how much we’re going to pay you.’

“I said, `Let’s go shoot it! I don’t care if the script ain’t right.’”––Showbizspy.
