Eddie Murphy Reveals His Plan For A ‘Coming To America’ Sequel
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.
