Prince Akeem is officially coming back to the big screen!
That's right, last week The Hollywood Reporter announced that a sequel to the 1988 classic comedy film, Coming To America, is in the works. It was also stated that Paramount Pictures has snatched Jonathan Levine (who ironically shot Snatched, The Night Before, Warm Bodies and The Wackness) to direct the movie, while Black-ish creator Kenya Barris is appointed to rewrite its script.
Fortunately, Eddie Murphy will reprise his role as the loveable Prince of Zamunda - I mean, it would be a great travesty if another actor was casted. According to Murphy's publicist, there isn't a settled "deal" in place, but I'm sure the money will talk.
