Coming to America 2

Recommended Posts



Coming to America 2 is a go at Paramount, and Eddie Murphy is indeed on-board to star in the comedy sequel. Released in 1988, the original Coming to America starred Murphy as an African prince who journeys to the United States disguised as a commoner, hoping to find love. Directed by John Landis, the film was a huge hit with $128 million grossed at the domestic box office ($275 million if adjusted for inflation).

In 2017, it was first reported that Paramount was moving forward with a long-delayed sequel to Coming to America. It was also reported that Eddie Murphy himself was working on the script, though the tweet that triggered the report was later said not to have been authorized by Murphy. Later, it was learned that Warm Bodies director Jonathan Levine had been tapped to direct the film while Black-ish creator Kenya Barris was doing the script. Further confirmation that Coming to America 2 was indeed in development arrived in 2018 during a Paramount CinemaCon presentation, though Murphy’s involvement was not verified at that time.
