  • It's Official: Eddie Murphy Will Star In COMING TO AMERICA 2

People have been excited for Coming To America 2 since it was announced, but fans were tired whether Eddie Murphy would return for the leading role.

Of course Eddie Murphy, 57, will be reprising his role as Akeem, an African prince who travels to America to find a bride worthy of his respect.

Paramount Pictures bosses have tapped Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer to take charge of the follow-up to the hit 1988 comedy, in which Murphy played an African prince on the hunt for a wife in NY. Brewer is best known for directing Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan, and the Footloose remake, though he's also helmed episodes of Empire and The Shield. Barris rewrote a script by the original film's writers Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield and remains onboard as an executive producer. The film will be directed by Craig Brewer, who just finished working with Murphy on Netflix's Dolemite Is My Name, which is expected to arrive later this year. Murphy is producing with Kevin Misher and Barris is exec producer.

The sequel's plot reportedly involves Prince Akeem leaving Zamunda and returning to America, after getting word that he has a long-lost son and heir to his throne.

"After many years of anticipation, I'm thrilled that Coming to America 2 is officially moving forward", Murphy said in a statement.

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. "From Hustle and Flow to his work with Eddie on Dolemite Is My Name, he never fails to blow me away".

At this time, there is no official production start scheduled for Coming to America 2, but the hope is that it will begin shooting sometime this year. We're nervous and skeptical about this one, but mostly we're just hyped. Murphy was already excited to work with Brewer again. Let us know in the comments!
