Coming to America 2 Gets 2020 Release Date
Eddie Murphy Coming to America 2 is expected to be released on theaters in the summer of 2020. This is 31 years Since the original comedy debuted and fans have been waiting a long time for a sequel. Last January, Murphy announced that he was officially on board and that the sequel would finally move forward after years of speculation. The comedian also announced that Craig Brewer, director of Dolemite Is My Name of Netflix, was chosen to direct the sequel.
When Eddie Murphy made this announcement, no release date was revealed. However, Paramount Pictures attributed to Coming to America 2 a release date of August 7, 2020. The California Film Commission had previously awarded the studio a tax credit of 13 million dollars last April, but that was only if the movie could start within 180 days of the credit offered. Obviously, this did not happen, but production will likely begin this spring or summer to prepare for the release of the summer of 2020.
Although Eddie Murphy is attached , no other actor was announced for Coming to America 2 . When the comedian announced that he would join as a result, he issued a statement in which he expressed his enthusiasm for the idea of "bringing all those classic and adored characters to the big screen". This has led to assumptions that Arsenio Hall, Headley Shari, John Amos and James Earl Jones would all end up replicating their original 1988 roles. Hall's Retreat must take place. The story revolves around Akeem, the pampered African prince who has to return to America to find his long lost son and real heir to the throne of Zamunda.
