Coming 2 America? Coming 2 America 2? Coming Back 2 America?

Needless to say, Paramount has set the official release date for Eddie Murphy’s untitled ‘Coming to America’ sequel.

“Coming to America 2” will go up against an untitled Warner Bros. film on August 7, 2020, thirty-two years and one month after the debut of John Landis’ woke, fish-out-of-water romcom starring Murphy as Prince Akeem Joffer who travels from the fictional African nation of Zamunda to the United States.

America’s original stars also set to return are Arsenio Hall (Semmi), Shari Headley (Lisa McDowell Joffer), John Amos (Cleo McDowell), and James Earl Jones (King of Zamunda). No word if Eriq La Salle will reprise the 'Prince of Soul Glo' Darryl Jenks.

Craig Brewer (Empire and Hustle and Flow, Black Snake Moan) will direct from a script written by Kenya Barris which finds Murphy’s Prince Akeem coming back to America in search of his long lost son. Which begs the immediate question, are Prince Akeem and Lisa still together?

You down for “Coming Back 2 America” ?
