  • Coming to America sequel release date set for 2020

Eddie Murphy will return as Prince Akeem, however, the remaining pieces of the cast have yet to be announced. A sequel to the 1988 film starring Eddie Murphy has always been discussed, but Paramount made it official past year when the studio hired Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield, who wrote the screenplay for the original film, to write the sequel.

The project has been in the works for several years with Jonathan Levine previously attached to direct.

The script penned by Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield will be reworked by Kenya Barris and bankrolled by Eddie Murphy himself along with Kevin Misher.

The original film also starred James Earl Jones, John Amos, Shari Headley, and Arsenio Hall and racked up a global total of nearly $300 million at the box office. The upcoming sequel will mark the second collaboration between Brewer and Murphy, who filmed the upcoming biographical comedy Dolemite is My Name last year which is expected to hit Netflix sometime this year.

Davis Takes Out Ruiz In First Round To Retain WBA Title
It was an impressive though expected win for Davis, who needed two attempts Friday to hit the 130-pound super featherweight limit. He followed up with a three-punch combination - right, left and a right hook that slammed into Ruiz's face.


So far, August 7, 2020 is home to a still untitled WB Event film.

The original film was directed by John Landis, and starred Murphy as a wealthy African prince who comes to Queens, New York posing as a poor man to search for a bride. With that date announced, an official production start date and cast reveal shouldn't be too bad far behind, especially since the team will want to get the cameras rolling sooner than later.

Craig Brewer will direct and Kenya Barris is executive producing. He is also in pre-production for "Triplets".
