Is there going to be BRP 5th edition that will include innovations from Call of Cthulhu 7th edition and other rules released since the publication of BRP 4th edition?

Do you mean a revision of the  BigGoldBook?   Then no; or at least, "not soon."

 No plans for an update of the Big Gold Book at the moment

Yes.

That is bizarre. You would think they would update it before releasing the BRP SRD. The current SRD is adapted from the BGB 4e. It doesn't include any revisions made since 2007.

Not really. The BGB is really a 1.0 item, or if you prefer, its a multi version compilation.

It was designed as a tool box as opposed to a definitive version. BRP itself has been adapted/modified for each game it appeared in. The “core” really hasn’t changed much at all.

I am curious if there has been any updates / announcements on this topic.

I'm thinking about buying the BRP BGB, but I don't want to have buyer's remorse if a new version could come out in the nearish future, so I'd only get a PDF copy in that case.

Are there any current plans to produce more generic BRP content?

There is no current plan for a revised BRP in anything like the "core rules + many options" format of the Big Gold Book. 

I would be in charge of that and it's not on my slate of projects, period. No new core book, no generic content, etc. 

If something like that hypothetically were to start, given the current production queue and pipeline, it would likely be at least two years before a new edition came out, and that would still use the existing core game rules as the current edition, perhaps incorporating rules from some of our more recent games. It would not be a 400-page behemoth, either.

Personally, while I'm all for more BRP content I don't think I need a new generic corebook.

I'd rather prefer to see Lords of the Middle Sea materialize soon and hopefully Mythic Iceland 2. 

And Stormbringer 6th edition if I am allowed to dream.

Take that up with Mr. Moorcock, I'm afraid.
I've got no doubt Chaosium would be more than willing... but not without the appropriate permissions!

A few months ago Moorcock was saying on social media that he was talking with people about things and it *seemed* this included with Chaosium about Stormbringer. But what he said was actually very vague and a bit confusing. There's a thread in the Stormbringer forum about that.

Well!

Well, well, well.
That's good news (albeit a bit unexpected -- also vague and confusing, as you note)

Looking forward to further developments/announcements!
