Shari Headley has officially signed on to reprise her iconic role of “Lisa McDowell” in the highly anticipated sequel of Coming To America.
This is absolutely awesome because Shari will join other original cast members Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Paul Bates, and John Amos, who have also signed on for the sequel written by Craig Brewer.
The sequel will follow former Prince Akeem who is set to become King of Zamunda when he discovers he has a son he never knew about in America – a street-savvy Queens native named Lavelle.
Honoring his father’s dying wish to groom this son as the crowned prince, Akeem and Semmi set off to America.
Coming To America 2 is slated to hit theaters on December 18, 2020.
A mock poster (which includes Tiffany Haddish) is making its rounds on social media.
I’m excited about the film. How about you?
