Beverly Hills Cop Reboot
Eddie Murphy will be returning to our screens in 2016 as Axel Foley in ‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’.

Directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) and produced by Jerry Bruckeimer, ‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’ will again follow the wise-cracking detective as he returns to the mean street of Detroit during the coldest winter on record to navigate the new rules and old enemies in America's toughest city. Ratner will follow in the footsteps of Martin Brest, Tony Scott and John Landis, who helmed the three previous movies. The original ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ was a smash success in 1984 with $300 million in worldwide grosses. The second film opened in 1987 and the third 20 years ago in 1994 with the three films grossing a total of $735 million worldwide.

Paramount Pictures made the announcement on Friday after the television spin-off, featuring Brandon T Jackson and Murphy, was dropped by CBS after the first pilot episode. The new screenplay is being written by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, who are known for their scripts for ‘Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol’ (2011) and for the new adaptation of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’, which is due for release this October 17. The news came as Warner Bros. said that their 3D sci-fier ‘Geostorm’, starring Gerard Butler, would be released on the same date.

‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’ will hit cinemas on March 25, 2016.

‘Orange Is The New Black’ Renewed for Third Season
The TV streaming service Netflix announced today that its original series ‘Orange Is The New Black’ has been renewed for a third season with 13 episodes in the line-up.

The news follows on from the recent renewal for ‘House of Cards’ and second season premiere, which is slated for Friday July 11. Created by Jenji Kohan and Liz Friedman, ‘Orange Is The New Black’ follows engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman, whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex Vause results in her arrest and year-long detention in a federal penitentiary. As Netflix’s most-watched original series of 2013, the comedy-drama stars Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Jason Biggs, Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Danielle Brooks, Laverne Cox, Taryn Manning and is produced by Lionsgate TV.

Based on the Piper Kerman memoir ‘Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison’, the drama series is set to air its second season on June 6 on Netflix. The trailer can be viewed below:

Batman Prequel ‘Gotham’ Trailer
Fox has released the first promo for its Batman prequel ‘Gotham’ starring ex-OC actor Ben McKenzie as detective James Gordon.

The series, which serves as a prequel in the Batman lore, also stars Donal Logue (Detective Harvey Bullock), Jada Pinkett Smith (Fish Mooney), David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Camren Bicondova, Erin Richards, Sean Pertwee, Zabryna Guevara and Cory Michael Smith. ‘Gotham’ explores Gordon's origin story as an idealistic rookie cop as well as the villains that made Gotham famous.

The pilot was written by executive producer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) and directed by Danny Cannon (CSI). John Stephens will serve as an exec producer on the series. The WBTV-produced series will premiere on Fox this autumn. You can check out the trailer below:
