I’ve been hearing about a possible Coming to America sequel for a while now, whether it’s rumored plot details (following the next generation of Prince Akeem) or the film’s new scribe (Kenya Barris); and it looks like we finally have a release date to look forward to.
That day is August 7, 2020. Paramount has also announced Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Dolemite Is My Name) as the film’s director.
The film’s original cast was comprised of Arsenio Hall playing Semmi, Shari Headley as Akeem’s love interest, John Amos as her father, and James Earl Jones as the king. Not much more information has yet been revealed about the new remake but Eddie Murphy returning as Akeem is enough to make us hopeful! #Socialites, are you excited for the sequel?
