EDDIE MURPHY HINTING ABOUT RETIREMENT

Comic Eddie Murphy is hinting that he will retire after the much-anticipated Beverly Hills Cop 4 movie, because he wants to get back on the stage. Murphy was an acclaimed stand-up comedian before he became a Hollywood movie star, and now he’s happy to return to comedy clubs and theatres. He says, "Thirty years and I have close to 50 movies and it is like, `Why am I in the movies? I’ve done that part now.’ "I’ll go back to the stage and do stand-up." But he’s still keen to get a fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie made, after years of looking at bad scripts for the project: "The third one was horrible, so I didn’t want to do another one." And he insists he isn’t making the new film in the franchise for the money. He adds, "The (third) movie wasn’t ready to be done and they (producers) wrote some s**t down on paper and I said, `Is this your phone number?’ and they said, `This is how much we’re going to pay you.’ "I said, `Let’s go shoot it! I don’t care if the script ain’t right.’"
