Memphis Director Slated For Coming To America 2 With Eddie Murphy

January 14, 2019

I loved "Coming To America" back in the day. I swear I watched it at least 25 time. But after 30 years we are finally getting a squel. Memphis director Craig Brewer is set to direct Eddie Murphy in "Coming to America 2." The script was written by Kenya Barris, whose credits include "Girls Trip" and the TV series "Black-ish." For the sequel, Murphy will reprise the role of Akeem, who in the original movie was an African prince from the fictional nation of Zamunda who traveled to New York to find a wife. The sequel will find Akeem forced to return to America to track down a successor to the throne of Zamunda. Shooting could begin as early as August.
