Eddie Murphy has a lot of folks wondering if a Coming to America sequel is finally in the works.

On Wednesday, Murphy shared a photo of Imani Izzi (Vanessa Bell Calloway) with the caption, “Coming to America sequel?” But before fans could even get a chance to start asking the comedian questions, Murphy up and deleted his entire social media account.

Now sources close to Murphy are saying he is, in fact, writing a script for the project … and we have a feeling we know what the plot will be.

Back in 2012, HipHollywood  sat down with the legendary actor and asked him if he would ever revisit any of his hit films. He told us Coming to America would be the one with the most potential, and revealed how he would script it.

Believe it or not, Murphy says he’d have Prince Akeem and Semmi coming back to America to track down his former wife who took half his sh*t.

In the 1988 film, directed by John Landis, Akeem (Murphy) flees to America accompanied by his persnickety sidekick, Semmi (Arsenio Hall), to find his queen. The film also starred James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, Eriq LaSalle and Vanessa Bell Calloway.


Exclusive: ‘The Oath’s Cory Hardrict, Kwame Patterson Recall Being Harassed By Cops



If you want to take an emotional, entertaining and dangerous ride through the corrupt land of law enforcement, then we suggest you tune in for The Oath.  

Delivering a unique perspective on what it means to wear the color blue, the show follows a group of police officers and their lives with badges on and off.

“With being a cop in the workforce, especially being an African American cop, when we step out there, we always want to do the right thing,” Cory Hardrict told HipHollywood. “The crazy thing about this show is we have another life as well outside of the cop world where things aren’t so perfect.”

Cory, who is expecting a baby girl very soon with his wife, Tia Mowry, continued, “When the badge comes off and we have on regular civilian clothes, we get treated like every African American harassed person out here in the world.”

Although this is just a television show, the narrative is not exactly a far cry from reality, a reality Cory Hardrict and Kwame Patterson personally know all too well. “I had one incident where he [the officer] took his blade and went to the back seat cut the back seat and sliced it … but you can’t do anything.”

Patterson added, “I’m from Baltimore, so Baltimore is one of the most corrupt police cities in the United States. So I’ve definitely dealt with police brutality, discrimination … it’s always my word against theirs.”

The new show, produced by 50 Cent, is now streaming on Crackle.
