Coming to America sequel release date set for 2020

"After many years of anticipation, I'm thrilled that Coming to America 2 is officially moving forward", Murphy said in a statement. In January, it was confirmed that Eddie Murphy would reprise his role as the iconic Prince Akeem while also serving as a producer for the film and now, they've locked in a release date for the film.

The film, originally set to be directed by Warm Bodies' Jonathan Levine who has since departed the project, will be directed by Craig Brewer.

Although the sequel to 'Coming To America' was only announced a few weeks ago, a confirmed release date has now been set for it. Murphy is producing with Kevin Misher. Brewer, who previously worked with Paramount Pictures on Hustle & Flow, Blake Snake Moan and the 2011 Footloose remake, will take the reins for the long-awaited sequel, which is penned by black-ish creator Kenya Barris.

The original film also starred James Earl Jones, John Amos, Shari Headley, and Arsenio Hall and racked up a global total of nearly $300 million at the box office.
