Brendan Fraser Joining DC's Doom Patrol As Robotman

While his big screen career hasn't been filled with success and blockbuster jobs of late, Brendan Fraser has found plenty to keep him busy on TV. He's now joining the cast of the DC Universe series Doom Patrol.

The show, which will be shown on the comics company's streaming service, brings the unusual superhero team created by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premian in 1963 to life in live-action form. Supernatural veteran Jeremy Carver is the main writer for the show, which unites a group of powered outcasts under the leadership of the mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder and Cyborg (Jovian Wade). Together Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby) and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) go on a mission to the weirder corners of the sprawling comics universe.

Fraser will provide the voice-over for Robotman (to be played in costume by Riley Shanahan on set) and will appear in flashbacks as his alter ego, Cliff Steele. A racing driver who was horrifically injured in an accident, Steele's body was replaced by Dr. Caulder, leading to the creation of Robotman.

With DC TV supremo Greg Berlanti producing alongside Sarah Schecter from his company and DC's Geoff Johns, the show should hit the subscription services next year.

Netflix Nabs Beverly Hills Cop Sequel

The streamer nabbed the sequel rights from Viacom's Paramount Pictures via a one-time licensing deal, with Bruckheimer set to produce.

Netflix has picked up the rights to make a sequel to Beverly Hills Cop, with Eddie Murphy set to star and Jerry Bruckheimer set to produce, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The project comes after a one-time licensing deal between Netflix and Paramount to produce the latest reboot of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are on board to direct the long awaited fourth installment of the series.

As competitors like Disney and Warner Bros. withhold their movies from Netflix to feed their own streaming services, Paramount has become a ready supplier, or "arms dealer" of sorts, of content and licensing rights for the streaming giant.

Paramount previously took a planned Beverly Hills Cop 4 sequel off the beat. The studio pulled the planned reboot of the popular cop comedy from its scheduled March 25, 2016 release…
