Netflix announced Monday that its in-production Beverly Hills Cop sequel has a new title: Beverly Hills Cop: Alex Foley.

Eddie Murphy will reprise the title role in the action comedy as part of his ongoing relationship with Netflix, with whom he signed a multimillion deal for his forthcoming return to stand-up.

And while the plot of the new movie is under wraps, Netflix did allow that Inception‘s Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zola‘s Taylour Paige have been cast in the film, which is being backed by original Beverly Hills Cop series producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
