First Look At The New Beverly Hills Cop – Eddie Murphy, Brandon T. Jackson And “The Jacket”

Production on the Beverly Hills Cop TV pilot has been underway since Friday. Barry Sonnenfeld is directing, Shawn Ryan wrote the script and is producing, and Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold are reprising their roles alongside Brandon T. Jackson as the new lead, Aaron Foley, son of Axel.

I think that the showmakers have got an awful lot on their side with this one.

Here are a couple of set pictures, courtesy of Ryan’s Twitter feed. Firstly, you can compare Jackson and Murphy; then you can see “that jacket” and wonder, for half a second, which of them will get to wear it.

Of course, it’s going to end up in the wardrobe of Foley Jr. Here’s a comparison of new and old from E!
