Eddie Murphy was a massive movie star for a lot of years, but years and years of garbage finally put that to end. Eddie himself even seemed to recognize that he was making terrible choices and now he has hardly made any movies lately.
Now it looks like maybe he’ll be gearing up for a comeback as Coming to America 2 is actually going to happen. Its expected to begin production sometime this year.
The original film was released in 1988 and was directed by legendary comedy director John Landis. It was a showcase of Eddie Murphy at the peak of his fame and it was a massive success at the box office.
The sequel is going to be directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle and Flow) who already worked with Murphy for a movie called Dolemite Is My Name that will be released on Netflix sometime this year.
I honestly feel like its sort of two late for a sequel to this movie. If Murphy was going to try another sequel it’d probably be the most interested in a Beverly Hills Cop 4 but who knows, maybe this will be good.
Is it too late for a Coming to America sequel?
