A sequel to the 1988 smash hit comedy has been in the works for a few years now, and the last update we had came in 2017 with the news that Black-ish creator Kenya Barris was writing the script for Jonthan Levine (50/50) directing. The excitement that surrounds these rumors is a testament to our enduring love for Eddie Murphy, while the fact that they nearly ever pan out is a testament to just how hard it is to get him to sign onto a new project. The comedian will be teaming up with Craig Brewer for the film who he recently worked alongside for Netflix's Dolemite Is My Name.
Much like Mr. Randy Watson and his iconic band, Sexual Chocolate, plenty of people have been wondering about Coming to America's main character, Prince Akeem, after he married Lisa and headed home to Zamunda. It's a stone-cold classic, in other words, which means we're as excited by the prospect of a sequel as we are nervous about it.
There is no production or release date for the "Coming to America" sequel.
Apparently numerous original characters will return as well, including Arsenio Hall as Akeem's assistant Seemi, Shar Headley, whom Akeem found in New York, John Amos, who played her father, and James Earl Jones, who depicted Akeem's father the king.
Coming To America 2 will follow the story of Prince Akeem's return to America after discovering that he has a long lost son.
In the three decades since the original, much has happened that would serve as flawless comic fodder for Akeem's return trip to America. "He is a true auteur and we couldn't be more thrilled to have him on board".
The hope is to start filming sometime in 2019, which would be welcome news to both fans of the original and Murphy himself, who has been trying to get the film off the ground for a while. Murphy was apparently eager to work with Brewer again and Coming to America 2 provided that opportunity. Stay tuned for further updates as they become available.
