Eddie Murphy Says Retirement Rumors Are False And Talks 'Beverly Hills Cop IV'

Ohhhh Eddie, you had us going there you bastard! Although we were already planning your going away party. Shucks! Guess the plans will have to change, huh? Ah well... you're still alright with me though.

MTV Movies caught up with our man to discuss retirement rumors and the 4th installment of the Beverly Hills Cop series.

Here are some soundbites from the horse's mouth:

- "The third 'Beverly Hills Cop' was so horrible... I didn't want to leave it like that. The first two were cool and the third one was shitty. Let's get the franchise fixed again, clean up this old mess and do a good movie... Don't just leave Axel with his thumb up his ass from the last movie like "Whatever happened to Axel Foley?" "He's sitting in Detroit with his thumb up his ass since 'Beverly Hills Cop III.'" Let's take those thumbs out and make a great movie!"

- "All I know is that it’s gonna be something that’s special. I’m not doing just, hey give me some big check and I go off [does the Foley laugh] and shoot the gun and jump over cars... Like, that’s some bullshit. If I do it, it’s gonna be some shit that’s right!"

Ok Eddie! We're all waiting with bated breath... or something.
