Are plans afoot to see Axel Foley meet Bad Boys on screen?
“Bad Boys For Life” helmers Adil El Abi and Bilall Fallah, who have been charged with the mission to resurrect the “Beverly Hills Cop” franchise next, has teased a possible possible crossover movie. Though the characters belong to different studios, the filmmakers point out that the franchises are both owned by uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, so there’s likely something that could be sorted out.
“Axel Foley, we thought about that already!” Fallah tells ComicBook.com when asked about the aforementioned crossover. He went on to say, “Because it would be cool if there’s like really Beverly Hills Cop and Bad Boys together in the same universe because it’s the Jerry Bruckheimer universe, so…”
For the time being, the duo remain focused on Axel Foley’s (Eddie Murphy) next solo adventure – which will be produced by Netflix.
“There’s a screenwriter whose writing a screenplay now at this point,” El Arbi says. “So yeah, we’re waiting for first draft and see what happens then.” Hopefully they are able to get the project off of the ground soon.”
