In case you haven’t been keeping up, pre-production on a Coming To America sequel is well underway.
Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, and Paul Bates, are already locked in to reprise their roles from the beloved 1988 buddy comedy. Kiki Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk) has been cast as Prince Akeem’s daughter and Wesley Snipes as the leader of a neighboring nation. Rick Ross is somehow somewhere in the picture as well.
But according to a report from Collider, the cast is once again a few stars stronger. The latest additions to the roster include Teyana Taylor, Leslie Jones, Michael Blackson, and Louie Anderson returning as Maurice.
An early synopsis of the film (per The Hollywood Reporter) finds Akeem returning to the states in search of a newly-discovered son (Jermaine Fowler) living in Queens with his mother (Leslie Jones.) With his father on the outs and the throne to inherit, Akeem heads back to America to deliver the King a new prince to groom.
Production begins this month with Craig Brewer in the director’s chair and a script from black-ish creator, Kenya Barris, eyeing a December 18, 2020 release date.
