the long wait
Eddie Murphy’s fans have been surprised by the absence of the actor from major productions, but the case of A Cop da Peasada had script complications, according to Murphy himself, in an interview with E! News in the year 2011.
The first opportunity Axel Foley almost returned was in a movie for 2008, then pushed back to 2010, and eventually the scripts didn’t collaborate and the plan never got off the ground. Another case was a series focused on the character’s child. The idea was also thought of, however, it was never produced.
The streaming platform has yet to set a release date for A Hardcore Cop 4.
