The streaming service is also keeping plot details for the action-comedy under wraps.

Mark Molloy is directing the movie, based on a screenplay by Will Beall.

The film is now in production.

Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Paul Reiser and Bronson Pinchot are reprising their roles from the Beverly Hills Cop franchise.

The original 1984 blockbuster starred Murphy as Foley, a streetwise Detroit police officer investigating the murder of his best friend in the posh California city.

The movie was followed by two sequels, released in 1987 and 1994.
