Well, this is good news on Good Friday!

Apparently Paramount is taking the necessary steps to make a Coming to America sequel happen.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio has hired the original screenwriters, Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield, to write a potential sequel. Kevin Misher (It’s Kind of a Funny Story, 2013’s Carrie) has also signed on to produce.

No word yet on whether Eddie Murphy will reprise his role as Prince Akeem, or Arsenio Hall, who plays his sidekick Semmi.

Murphy got folks excited last month when he posted a photo of Imani Izzi (Vanessa Bell Calloway) with the caption, “Coming to America sequel?” on his Twitter account.

Shortly thereafter, he deleted his ENTIRE Twitter account.

He has, however, spoken about a possible sequel and even shared with HipHollywood how he’d like it to be scripted.

In the John Landis-directed original, Murphy played Prince Akeem, who traveled from his wealthy African country to Queens, New York, to escape an arranged marriage and find a wife who will love him in spite of his title. James Earl Jones also starred in the comedy, along with Shari Headley and John Amos.

We love any talk of a follow-up to the 1988 comedy.

If you love a good game night then you’re probably going to love the new comedy-crime flick Game Night hitting theaters Feb. 23.
Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams take fun and games to new heights playing a couple whose competitive gamenight gatherings become the setting of a murder mystery when things take an unexpected turn. Their game night crew consists of two pair of couples played by Lamorne Morris and Kylie Bunberry and Billy Magnussen and Sharon Horgan. The antics are pretty hilarious, and we could totally see ourselves attending a game night with them in real life.
So, we had to ask the cast if they were hosting a Game Night what celebs would they want to invite over. Their answers are heeeeeelarious. Apparently Lamorne Morris is super competitive and thinks he can beat LeBron James at any board game, Kylie Bunberry wants to play with Meek Mill (in jail or not) and Billy Magnussen thinks he can take Oprah down.
Don’t believe us just watch!
