“Making these movies is never easy, though,” he adds. “It was great that the (original) cast came together for this one, but the script is key.”

Murphy, however, doesn’t hesitate when asked if another Foley adventure is in the works.

“They’re developing ‘Beverly Hills Cop 5’ as we speak,” he tells USA TODAY. “And if the script is right, I’d do it tomorrow.”

By Murphy’s telling, the script for “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F” only came together once a key element fell into place: the unresolved relationship between Foley and his estranged lawyer daughter Jane (Taylour Paige).

“That (storyline) was, truth be told, the only reason the movie got made, and why this script is different from the eight others I read over the years,” says Murphy.

“Once we realize Axel has lived a life, and he was married and had a child and is estranged from her, it changed everything. So sure, it’s cops and robbers but it’s really Axel reconciling with his daughter,” the star says. “Once we added that to it, then, OK, that’s why Axel’s back in Beverly Hills and why he’s driving a truck through walls, to save his daughter and save his relationship with her.”

“I have flirted with the idea of a live show for years and years, but when I think it, I realize it would have to be more than just stand-up,” he says. “I’ve done so much other stuff, I’d have to have music in my show, maybe I’d be telling stories my career and my life, and I’d have some stand-up in the show. So it’d be more like a Broadway show.”

“I heard it was great,” he says. “So I can see me doing that. But not just doing stand-up and going, ‘What is wrong with Joe Biden?’ or just talking the problems of the day. I need a bigger canvas to work with.”
