It has been announced that Kevin Bacon, John Ashton, and Judge Reinhold will be joining the cast of Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F. The trio will be reprising their roles as the characters they made famous in the original film.

While plot details for Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F are being kept under wraps, fans can expect plenty of action, humor, and nostalgia as Axel Foley and his old pals reunite for another adventure.

Production on the film is set to begin later this year, with a release date tentatively scheduled for 2023. In the meantime, fans of the franchise can look forward to seeing Kevin Bacon, John Ashton, and Judge Reinhold back in action in what is sure to be a thrilling and entertaining sequel.
