Uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer recently revealed plans for sequels to two of his biggest hits: Top Gun and Beverly Hills Cop. According to Bruckheimer, both Tom Cruise and Eddie Murphy are on board with reprising their iconic roles as Maverick and Axel Foley, respectively.
The question, though, is why? Not just why there's any need to do sequels to movies that are 30 years old, but more importantly, why Cruise and Murphy would be willing to step back into the roles that helped make them famous.
