Eddie Murphy says it was ‘surreal’ getting arrested by his real-life daughter in “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F”

Not to mention getting tased by his real-life son-in-law.

The long-awaited third installment in the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F, is a family affair in more ways than one. 

Not only does Eddie Murphy's beloved rogue detective Axel Foley have to try to reconcile with his estranged daughter to save her life, but Murphy's real-life daughter gets in on the action as well — an experience he called "surreal."

In one scene, Foley is arrested while trying to commandeer a traffic cop’s adorable little car for a requisite police chase. The traffic cop is played by Murphy’s daughter, Bria, one of his 10 kids. The other cop who later tases him is none other than his newly-minted son-in-law. 

"She’s the one that arrests me," Murphy told Today’s Al Roker, regarding his daughter. "And the other scene when I get arrested in the movie, that’s my son-in-law tasing me in the neck. It was right after they got married. It was on the set, tasing me in my neck. I was like, 'This is surreal.'"

For those keeping track at home, that’s two arrests for Foley, something he casually brushes off when he reunites with John Ashton’s John Taggart and Judge Reinhold’s Billy Rosewood in a recreation of the original Beverly Hills Cop’s iconic squad car scene.

Speaking of surreal, director Mark Molloy — a big fan of the films and Murphy while growing up in Australia — could hardly believe he got to shoot the three actors cutting up, as it were.

"I always had that image of those three guys on a stakeout in the car together; it was just imprinted in my brain," Molloy previously told Entertainment Weekly. "And then I remember sitting with the three of them in that car, and I actually happened to look around at the crew filming it. I just saw on everyone's faces, like, Oh man, this is exactly where we want to be right now."

Meanwhile, onscreen, Murphy’s daughter, Jane, is played by Zola’s Taylour Paige. Jane finds herself in a heap of trouble when she agrees to take on the case of an alleged cop killer, only to uncover a conspiracy among Beverly Hills’ finest. Jane’s ex, Det. Bobby Abbott, is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and while he doesn’t get to tase Foley, they have plenty of opportunities to bond and bicker.

Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F premieres on Netflix July 3.
