‘Coming To America’ 2
After years of pump fakes and false hopes, Coming To America 2 is OFFICIALLY in the works!
Director Jonathan Levine has teamed up with “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris for Paramount’s classic 1998 film, Coming To America, starring Eddie Murphy.
Murphy is expected to reprise his role for the Paramount sequel, though nothing’s been finalized. Blaustein and Sheffield wrote the original Coming to America, directed by John Landis. Kevin Misher will produce the sequel.
Levine’s roster of directing credits includes Snatched, The Wackness, 50/50, The Night Before and the pilot for Jim Carrey’s Showtime series I’m Dying Up Here. In addition to Black-ish, Barris co-wrote Girls Trip and The Game, among other titles.
Kenya has been rendered speechless by the opportunity. He took to Instagram on Wednesday and wrote, “I don’t have words. ??”
