LOS ANGELES — Rose Bearers get ready! His royal highness Prince Akeem is “Coming to America” again. Except this time he’s not looking for a bride. After a 31-year hiatus, Eddie Murphy and company are in the process of concocting “Coming 2 America.” The African-based sequel is scheduled to hit theaters on August 7, 2020. Officials with Paramount Pictures confirmed the good news. Eddie, who portrays Prince Akeem of Zamunda, will be joined by costars Arsenio Hall (Semmi), James Earl Jones (King Jaffe Joffer), Louie Anderson (fast food worker), John Amos (Cleo McDowell) and Shari Headley (Lisa McDowell).

Age, however, could play a factor.

Eddie is 58-years-old.

Arsenio is 63.

James is 88.

Louie is 66.

John is 79.

And Shari is 55.

That’s an AARP lineup for your ass.

West African comic Michael Blackson, a native of Ghana, announced his commitment shortly after receiving a personal invitation from Eddie. Directed by Craig Brewer, “Coming 2 America” will pick up where the 1988 film left off. After learning he had a long-lost son in the United States, Prince Akeem travels back to America to meet the improbable heir of Zamunda’s throne.

Are you excited about the sequel?

Did they wait too damn long?

  5. When I was a kid and saw this film…..I really wanted to visit Zamunda, a rich, peaceful African nation with happy people ruled by a benevolent King. Then I discovered that no such place exists 😔

  6. To Release is To Resolve

    I got $5 it is going to suck ass. Consistently when they do these comedy sequels years upon years after the original it is trash.

  7. Charles Stevenson

    Its IS TOO LATE.. Everyone will be disappointed…Eddie&Arsenio have not been funny in along time..they should not do it.. They should just guest star In Black Pather 2

  8. Andre Tresvant

  9. Just let your soul glow. Feelin’ oh so silky smooth.

  26. Jewel justjewel

    There can never be another coming to america.. The time period has passed People dont think the same way anymore… America has a different cultural climate than it used to have -It can never happen in the same way and the story finished..

  27. Oh man! I can’t wait for CTA 2.

  28. Why do we need a sequel? The original was perfect as a stand-alone movie! You don’t need a sequel for EVERYTHING! Stop being lazy and start writing original material!

  29. No coincidence on the timing. They see black panther get all that over hype so they think “hey! What another movie about African royalty we can make? Yeah! We should win an Oscar for this! Or a Nobel peace prize even!!!”

  30. General Buttcrack

  31. … Cue black on black hate. Black people never fail to destroy each other. 😢

  32. Eddie Murphy, would you kindly consider casting some real African actors in Africa like Frank Artus, Genevieve Nnaji and O.C Ukeje and Wunmi Mosaku, please?

  33. The original had so many iconic lines: “What is that, velvet?”, “I have a date with Lisa!”, “In da’ FACE!”, “I THOUGHT IT WAS THE TRASH!”, etc.


    I watch this movie 12 times a year since 2014.
    Never get tired

  35. Eddie, please don’t do this.

  36. Samuel L Jackson better have a cameo

  37. Mickle In a Pickle
