Kiki Layne, who did an incredible job in If Beale Street Could Talk, has now joined the ever-growing cast of Coming To America 2.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kiki will play the role of Prince Akeem’s daughter who is burdened with feeling like she’s the son he never had.
The new story sees Akeem, now set to become king, discovering he has a son he never knew about, a street-savvy Queens native named Lavelle.
Honoring his father’s dying wish to groom his son as a newly crowned prince, Akeem must once again return to America.
The news of Kiki Layne joining the cast comes on the heels of the addition of Wesley Snipes.
“Saturday Night Live” star Leslie Jones is also in negotiations to join the film.
I’m getting more excited about this project by the minute!
