Coming to America 2 in Development

Eddie Murphy 'Coming to America 2' Is Really in the Works!
Quote:
If Eddie Murphy's "Coming to America 2" tweet was the smoke, then here's the fire -- there IS a plan to shoot a sequel!

Sources close to Eddie tell us he's in the early writing stages of the project. No word yet on which original cast members would return because he's still tinkering with the plot. So, it really could happen, but the mystery is how it ended up on Twitter.

The Wednesday night post simply said, "Coming to America sequel?" with a pic of Vanessa Bell Calloway in character. Eddie's camp tells us he doesn't tweet. Our sources say he has a social media team to do that stuff.
The tweet and Eddie's whole account have since been deleted. That's most likely because we're told there was a plan to post something like this, but it wasn't supposed to happen yet. As we said, Eddie's still writing.

The premature release caught fans and Princess Imani by surprise. Vanessa, who's barely aged in the nearly 30 years since the original film, told us she's ready to go.

So are fans, so someone just yell "Action!" already.

Re: 'Coming to America 2' in Development

Sounds like 100% speculation, but I'd love it if he did make a sequel. But they better hurry, John Amos and James Earl Jones aren't getting any younger. I guess the entire cast isn't at this point. But next to Trading Places, Coming to America was him at his comedic best.

Because the decades later comedy sequel has always worked so well in the past?

The sequel to Dumber and Dumber worked out fine.

I hope they're able to get Arsenio Hall back.

If he can get Rihanna naked in a pool telling him his royal penis is clean, I'm there.

Probably because the whole fish out of water premise was what helped a lot of the scenes in the original. And Eddie Murphy isn't funny anymore.

Re: 'Coming to America 2' in Development

I rewatched the original last night. Still so good. I'd forgotten how the barber is basicly the Prince's guide through all the hijinks. He's the character who directs him at every crossroad.

Wasn't there a plagariism accusation against this film? Could that prevent a sequel?

Re: 'Coming to America 2' in Development

Coming Back to America? I'm not even sure what it would be about.

BTW, I don't understand why the tweet and article focuses on that character/actress. That was the "queen" they set up for him, who he rejected. Why would she even be in the sequel?

Re: 'Coming to America 2' in Development

I think for kicks, they'd bring back just about all the cast on some level. And I guess the title of this thread is a bit I correct, as this isn't in development.
