Eddie Murphy has hinted he wants to retire from making movies and return to stand-up comedy.

Eddie Murphy has hinted he wants to retire from acting.
The 'Beverly Hills Cop' actor is considering returning to his previous career as a stand-up comedian.
He told US TV show 'Extra': "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.' "
Although Eddie, 47, confirmed 'Beverly Hills Cop 4' is in production, he admitted he didn't want to do it because it "wasn't ready to be done".
The actor also confessed he isn't a fan of 'Beverly Hills Cop 3' but was motivated to sign up to the sequel by the huge money on offer.
He said: "The third one was horrible, so I didn't want to do another one.
"The 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 isn't right.' "
Meanwhile, 'Beverly Hills Cop 4' director Brett Ratner has hit out at reports that the movie will have a PG rating.
He said: "Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Believe me, this is going to be a hardcore 'R' Beverly Hills Cop. I start shooting next year."
