30 years after, Eddie Murphy signs new deal to make a sequel of ‘Coming To America’

Over 30 years after Eddie Murphy starred as
Prince Akeem in Coming to America, the actor
will star in a sequel that’ll be scripted by
Black-ish creator Kenya Barris.
Plans for a sequel to the classic 1988 comedy
were first announced in 2017 with director
Jonathan Levine and Coming to America‘s
original screenwriters on board but it didn’t
follow through.
“After many years of anticipation, I’m thrilled
that Coming to America 2 is officially moving
forward. 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” Murphy said in a
statement.
The sequel will revolve around Murphy’s
Prince Akeem returning to America to seek
out his long-lost son, the heir to the throne of
the African nation Zamunda.
