Report: Eddie Murphy Readies ‘Coming To America’ Sequel

Published: Thursday 28th Sep 2017 by Rashad

Nearly 30 years (and nearly $300 million generated in revenue) after its debut, Eddie Murphy‘s legendary comedy classic, ‘Coming To America’ (also starring James Earl Jones, Arsenio Hall, John Amos, and more), is set to come back to screens for a sequel.

Details inside:


The announcement, unveiled today, confirms the movie is not only going forward with Murphy’s involvement, but it’s also tapped ‘Black-ish’ creator, Kenya Barris, to helm the script.  Variety reports:

[Jonathan]  Levine will direct from a script that Barris will rewrite from a screenplay by original writers Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield. Kevin Misher is producing.

Murphy is involved with the development of the sequel, although there’s no deal in place yet for him to star. Kevin Misher is the producer. Barris co-wrote the comedy “Girls Trip” with Tracy Oliver and worked on New Line’s “Son of Shaft.”

    Well Coming to America is a classic however thank god they are not remaking the movie it’s a sequel! So this will be interesting to see cause we are 30 years removed from the first so how close can you pick up on following up to a classic from 30 years!? We will see
