Yesterday we ran an article that suggested Eddie Murphy might be retiring – and therefore squatting “Beverly Hills Cop 4″ (supposedly filming next year) before it even gets in front of a lens.

Seems Murphy was pulling his leg – pulling something anyway – when he said that, because he is indeed still locked into doing another Axel Foley adventure.

The comic superstar tells MTV that as long as it’s done right, he’ll definitely be back. But more so, he wants to do another one “Because the third ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ was horrible!” Murphy laughed. “I didn’t want to leave it like that. The first two were cool and the third one was sh—y. [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 a– from the last movie,” the comic continued, chuckling. “Whatever happened to Axel Foley? He’s sitting in Detroit with his thumb up his a– since ‘Beverly Hills Cop III.’ Let’s take those thumbs out and make a great movie!”

In addition, Murphy seconds director Brett Ratner’s statement that the film should be a Hard-R with oodles of cuss words.

“I’ll tell you what about profanity,” Murphy said. “Over the last 20 years or so, because of the studios, everybody figured out there’s a PG-13 audience, you know, and that’s the biggest piece of the pie. And a bunch of artists, myself included, got put in this PG-13 box — artists that aren’t PG-13 artists! Then comedies like ‘Superbad,’ ‘Knocked-Up,’ and ‘Juno’ come out and people go, ‘Oh, this is the brilliant sh–.’ And it’s just people acting like real people, talking like real people. And those movies are making all the money now.

“Get back to the real sh–,” he added, regarding what he most wants for Foley. “That’s where I started. [Be] a real person!”

Murphy says he’s yet to see a script.
