Kevin Bacon also joins the cast alongside Taylour Paige as Foley’s estranged daughter.

In an interview with People Murphy spoke about his return to the character, saying, “It’s a really physical movie and I had to do some physical stuff,” he said. “I like to be on the couch, I don’t like to be jumping over and shooting and running. And I had to do some jumping and shooting and running. And as a result at the end of the movie, I had a knee brace and my back is messed up. But the movie is gonna be special.”

Gordon-Levitt shared his excitement about the project, saying, “Going to work on ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ isn’t like work. You think my life is a dream. I’m riding in a helicopter next to Eddie Murphy, and we’re making each other laugh.”
