In the sequel, Akeem is about to become king when he discovers he has a long-lost son in Queens, and sets off to find him.

The original film starred Murphy, 58, as Prince Akeem from the fictional African nation, Zamunda, as he finds himself going undercover as an employee at a fast food chain in Queens, New York, while trying find himself a wife.

By then, officers had talked to several witnesses and realized it was the same suspect involved in the previous incidents. Associated Press reporters Robert Jablon, John Antczak and Christopher Weber contributed from Los Angeles .

Layne will play his daughter in the movie, while Snipes will portray General Izzi, the leader of a nation that's neighbor to Zamunda, according to THR. Take that with a grain of salt for now, but Murphy has obviously done it before. It's unclear whether poor Maurice is still working at McDowell's 32 years later, or if he'll cross paths with Akeem elsewhere.

Coming 2 America is expected to open in August 2020.

Murphy is producing with Kevin Misher and Kenya Barris, and production is slated to start later this month, as Paramount will release the movie on December 18, 2020. Snipes' credits include "Blade" and "White Men Can't Jump". He's repped by ICM Partners.

"Congratulations and Salaam (peace) to Mahershala Ali, a attractive and talented artist whose expressions I look forward to experiencing for many years to come".
