Mur­phy con­firms Com­ing to Amer­ica 2

Winnipeg Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

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.
