Murphy confirms Coming to America 2
New dad Eddie Murphy is reprising one of his most famous roles for the sequel to Coming To America.
Paramount Pictures bosses have tapped Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer to take charge of the followup to the hit 1988 comedy, in which Murphy played an African prince on the hunt for a wife in New York.
Brewer just directed Murphy in Dolemite Is My Name and it appears the two men got along so well they started talking about the project in between takes.
According to Deadline, the sequel will revolve around the son of Murphy’s character, Akeem.
