More 'Beverly Hills Cop' vets return for 'Axel Foley' flick

Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Paul Reiser and Bronson Pinchot have signed on to reprise their roles in the action-comedy, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley.

The actors will reunite with Eddie Murphy for the Netflix movie, which is production now, the streaming service said Wednesday.

"Hey... anything I can do to help Eddie Murphy's career, happy to oblige," Reiser tweeted, along with the casting announcement.

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

Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.

Details of the plot are being kept under wraps.

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

Reiser, Reinhold and Ashton played detectives Jeffrey Friedman, Billy Rosewood and John Taggert respectively. Pinchot played art gallery worker Serge.

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

Olivia Wilde laughs off 'Spitgate,' Florence Pugh feud rumors on 'Late Show'

Flashlight DeptOlivia Wilde is laughing off the drama surrounding her film Don't Worry Darling.

The 38-year-old actress and director addressed "Spitgate" and her rumored feud with Florence Pugh during Wednesday's episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Don't Worry Darling is a psychological thriller film directed by Wilde and starring Pugh, Harry Styles and Chris Pine. The movie's production and promotion has been plagued by rumors of feuds, including "Spitgate," or when Styles appeared to spit on Pine at the film's world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

On The Late Show, Wilde addressed "Spitgate" after being asked if she is feuding with Pugh.

"He did not," Wilde said of Styles. "But I think it's a perfect example of, like, people will look for drama anywhere they can. Harry did not spit on Chris, in fact."

"People can look at a video that shows evidence of someone not spitting on someone else and they'll still see what they want to see, and that is the creation of drama," she added.

Pine's rep previously denied the rumor, calling it a "complete fabrication."

On The Late Show, Wilde said she has "nothing but respect" for Pugh, who has missed several Don't Worry Darling press events amid rumors of the feud. Wilde attributed Pugh's absence to her work on the Dune sequel.

"Florence Pugh is the rare actress who is as good at dramatic work as she is at action," Wilde said earlier in the interview. "There's real action sequences in the film."

Wilde and Styles, who have been romantically linked since late 2020, attended a New York screening of Don't Worry Darling on Monday. Pugh and Pine were not present at the event.

Don't Worry Darling opens in theaters Friday.

'Wicked' director confirms casting of 'Bridgerton' actor Jonathan Bailey

The Wizard of Oz prequel will star Ariana Grande as Glinda and Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba.

The first part of Wicked is scheduled to debut Dec. 25, 2024, and the second is slated for Christmas Day 2025.
