'Coming to America' sequel set for 2020 release

Coming to America sequel release date set for 2020

Craig Brewer is set to direct the sequel to the 1988 comedy, in which Eddie plays the prince of a fictional African country, who travels to America to escape an arranged marriage and find a wife.

Get ready because Eddie Murphy is coming to America, again!

Murphy was one of the first to have been confirmed to return to his role as Prince Akeem but it is not yet known whether the film's other stars, including James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, John Amos and Arsenio Hall, will return to their roles.

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 film will be directed by Craig Brewer, whose credits includes Hustle & Flow.

The Caribbean side lead the three-match rubber 2-0 following victories by 381 runs in Barbados and by 10 wickets in Antigua. Speaking afterwards, match referee Jeff Crowe said was satisfied the umpires dealt with the matter on the field.

The original movie saw Murphy play Prince Akeem, the good-natured but pampered royal of Zamunda, who flees an arranged marriage and arrives in NY with his best friend, Semmi, played by Arsenio Hall.

The as-yet untitled "Coming to America" sequel is scheduled to hit theaters on August 7, 2020. With that date announced, an official production start date and cast reveal shouldn't be too terrible far behind, especially since the team will want to get the cameras rolling sooner than later.

As for the cast and crew, having recently directed a number of episodes of the TV series Empire, Brewer now shares a shorthand with Murphy, having just directed him in the upcoming film, Dolemite Is My Name.

According to Deadline, "Akeem learns about a long-lost son, and must return to America to meet the unlikely heir to the throne of Zamunda".
