Bruckheimer-Paramount Deal Cements Beverly Hills Cop Reboot, Top Gun 2 On Their Way

beverlyhillscop Blockbuster producer Jerry Bruckheimer has left Disney and has closed a three-year first-look deal with Disney, which will begin in April 2014, reports Deadline. But what will he be producing there?

First and closest to production is a reboot of Beverly Hills Cop, the 1980s police action franchise starring Eddie Murphy. Murphy will return to reprise his role as Axel Foley, and Brett Ratner will direct this as soon as he's finished on his version of Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson. The reboot is back on after a series for CBS, also set to have Murphy reprising his role, ended up not going forward.

Another franchise reboot is Top Gun 2, which is really a sequel with Tom Cruise set to return, but will probably be in the same vein as Beverly Hills Cop featuring a younger cast of characters as well. No updated details on this one, which is not quite as far along in the development process.

And Finally, Bruckheimer is also bringing over from Disney a "cat and mouse thriller" called Shake, about an FBI agent transporting a serial killer who must hunt the killer down again when they get separated during an earthquake.
