10 Movie-To-TV Projects We're Excited About | Beverly Hills Cop
Beverly Hills Cop

Stage: Pilot

How would it work? Axel Foley’s son is the focus of the show, with Axel himself now police chief of Detroit.

What to say about it: Rumours popped up for a while, usually tied to the ongoing efforts to develop a new film based on the character. Then in October 2011 Eddie Murphy announced he was switching his attention totally to the small screen and recruited The Shield’s Shawn Ryan to develop a pilot for Sony Pictures TV. CBS has picked up the idea, which has been pitched as a blend of buddy cop and crime procedural. Hopefully heavier on the former.

Possible casting: Anyone else think Community’s Donald Glover is a good call? Even if we don’t want to lose the Greendale gang. And Eddie will, of course, pop up from time to time.

Possible tagline: “The heat is back on!”

4 Isn't S.H.I.E.L.D meant to be set in a totally diiferent "Universe" to the MCU?
Last I heard Kevin Fiege was adamant that the TV shows based on Marvel Characters (Hulk especially) would have absolutely no relation to the films. Basically the same way that Marvel comics and Ultimate Marvel comics take place in different realities. Have I missed him giving up on that? More

Was excited when About a Boy popped up but that sounds bad. It could do with a mini-series to flesh out the parts of the book that the film deviates from, but just to take the concept of man-befriends-boy? Why don't you just get rid of Alan Cryer and have One And a Half Men? More
