Eddie Murphy Signs New Deal For A Sequel Of ‘Coming To America’

It has been more than 30 years since black Hollywood actor, Eddie Murphy starred as Prince Akeem in ‘Coming to America’, the actor is now set to star in a sequel that’ll be scripted by Black-ish creator Kenya Barris.

Plans for a sequel to the classic 1988 comedy film were initially announced in 2017 with director Jonathan Levine and Coming to America‘s original screenwriters on board but it didn’t follow through until now.

Since 2017, Barris has been assigned to rewrite the script by the original writers of the “Coming to America”, Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield, while Eddie Murphy will be producing “Coming to America 2” along side Kevin Misher.

Statement released by Eddie Murphy thus read: “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 [Is My Name], and I’m looking forward to bringing all these classic and beloved characters back to the big screen”.

The sequel which is an adaptation of the 2014 Swedish film “Force Majeure,” 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.
