Recommended Posts

Sequels are often a miss rather than they are a hit, especially when it's a sequel to an older film. People have been excited for Coming To America 2 since it was announced, but fans were weary whether Eddie Murphy would return for the leading role. Thankfully, Paramount has confirmed this is the case, and on top of that, they're bringing back the film's original director for the sequel.

“After many years of anticipation, I’m thrilled that Coming to America 2 is officially moving forward,” Murphy said in a statement. “We’ve assembled a great team that will be led by Craig Brewer, who just did an amazing job on Dolemite, and I’m looking forward to bringing all these classic and beloved characters back to the big screen.”

Black-Ish's Kenya Barris is currently re-writing a script by the original writers of Coming To America, Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield.

There isn't a start date for production yet, but they're hoping to start this year.
