The new Cop, the fourth in the franchise, has been in development limbo for decades, passing between different filmmakers and even studios.
Right now, it's in production for Netflix, with Mark Molloy directing and Eddie Murphy returning as the title character. The plot of the film — with a script currently credited to Will Beall – is being kept under wraps for now, though you have to figure that it'll see Axel Foley up to his old tricks, even if he's a little older himself these days.
Netflix has yet to announce the release date for this one.
