  • Coming to America

The excitement that surrounds these rumors is a testament to our enduring love for Eddie Murphy, while the fact that they nearly ever pan out is a testament to just how hard it is to get him to sign onto a new project.

According to a new report from Deadline, Paramount has hired filmmaker Craig Brewer to direct the Coming to America sequel.

Sequels and reboots are a dime a dozen these days, so it's hard to be genuinely excited about one, but having said that, we are pretty much besides ourselves at the announcement that there's a Coming To America 2 happening, with Eddie Murphy returning to the lead role. Brewer is best known for directing Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan, and the Footloose remake, though he's also helmed episodes of Empire and The Shield. Murphy is producing with Kevin Misher and Barris is exec producer.

"After many years of anticipation, I'm thrilled that Coming to America 2 is officially moving forward", Murphy said in a statement. The story of Coming to America 2 will find Akeem learning that he has a long lost son, and he must return to America once more to meet his unlikely heir to the throne. "We've assembled a great team that will be led by Craig Brewer, who just did an awesome job on Dolemite, and I'm looking forward to bringing all these classic and beloved characters back to the big screen", said Eddie Murphy in a statement.

At this time, there is no official production start scheduled for Coming to America 2, but the hope is that it will begin shooting sometime this year.

Brewer is repped by WME and attorney Carlos Goodman, and Murphy is WME, ML Management and Ziffren Brittenham's Matt Johnson and Skip Brittenham; Barris is CAA, Artists First and attorney Gregg Gellman.
