“She’s your Queen to be!”… or King to be.
Looks like T’Challa is about to have some competition as it’s officially been confirmed that Paramount pictures Coming to America 2 is happening!
Craig Brewer (Hustle and Flow, Black Snake Moan) is confirmed to come on board as director of the hit sequel. Majority of the cast is expected to come back with James Earl Jones, Arsenio Hall, Shari Headley, and of course the master himself Eddie Murphy as Prince Akeem! Murphy and Craig Brewer just finished production on Netflix Original Dolemite is My Name, and the two are supposedly stoked to reunite again.
Supposedly, the plot is that Prince Akeem learns he has a long lost son in America and must journey back to their to meet the future king of Zamunda. Black-ish and Girl’s Trip writer Kenya Barris is set to pen the screenplay, along with Murphy producing. There’s been no production date so far but is is expected to happen this year and let’s hope so!
I for one am psyched to see Prince Akeem, (and Eddie Murphy in general) to return to the big screen.
