Everything Old Is Crap Again
But let's not let go of the 80s just yet as Eddie Murphy continues to develop his CBS version of Beverly Hills Cop. Murphy is producing that with Shawn Ryan, and it will center on the son of Eddie Murphy's Axel Foley character. According to the Humor Mill, that character will likely be played by Brandon T. Jackson, who is in final negotiations for the role. You may know Jackson best from ... some seriously shitty movies, like Big Momma's House: Like Father, Like Son.
Moving on to the early 90s, Silence of the Lambs is also coming to television, and we now have our first look -- via Slashfilm -- at Mads Mikkelson in the Hannibal Lector role.
Finally, the fifth installment in the 1988 franchise, Die Hard, which is unfortunately named A Good Day to Die Hard, now has a full length trailer. There be explosions.
OK. I'm a little excited about that one.
