Fourth Beverly Hills Cop Movie Filming in Detroit. Segments of Beverly Hills Cops 4 (2016)’s film production representing Detroit, Michigan will actually be filmed in Detroit. The Brett Ratner film, starring Eddie Murphy, was given a tax incentive by the Michigan Film Office to bring the production to Detroit.

The production was approved for an estimated $13.5 million based on up to $56,644,792 of projected in-state expenditures. The film is expected to bring about 362 jobs to Michigan workers.

“We are excited to welcome Axel Foley and the Beverly Hills Cop franchise back to Michigan,” said Margaret O’Riley, director of the Michigan Film Office. “This project will highlight locations throughout metro Detroit that speak to the city’s heritage while making significant investments in the community by hiring Michigan workers and local businesses.”

On the plot of Beverly Hills Cops 4:

The newest installment of Beverly Hills Cop, from the ultimate “fish-out-of-water” franchise, takes Axel Foley, who has been living a cushy life as a Beverly Hills Detective, back to Detroit during the coldest winter on record to navigate the new rules and old enemies in one of America’s most tenacious cities.

On the Beverly Hills Cops film franchise:

Beverly Hills Cop is a series of action-comedy films, with characters written by Daniel Petrie, Jr. and Danilo Bach.
