Eddie Murphy’s ‘Coming to America’ Sequel Gets 2020 Release Date

According to multiple reports, Paramount Pictures confirmed the release of the new Eddie Murphy movie, the sequel to Coming To America, on the 7th of August, 2020. Barris rewrote the script by the original film's writers Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield and remains onboard as an executive producer. A sequel to the 1988 film starring Eddie Murphy has always been discussed, but Paramount made it official past year when the studio hired Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield, who wrote the screenplay for the original film, to write the sequel.

The film, originally set to be directed by Warm Bodies' Jonathan Levine who has since departed the project, will be directed by Craig Brewer. Murphy is producing with Kevin Misher. Directed by John Landis, the first Coming To America starred Eddie as an African king, a man fleeing his family and nation due to an arranged marriage.

Murphy has been confirmed to return to his role as Prince Akeem but it is not yet known whether the film's other stars including James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, John Amos and Arsenio Hall will return to their roles.
