The rumors of a sequel to Eddie Murphy’s beloved 80’s comedy Coming to America have swirled for years. Decades even. But now we have some definitive proof of intent.
First Eddie teased everyone this week with a tweet that he immediately took down. But as this is 2017 and nothing is ever really deleted, the smoke was out there. Almost forcing him to come clean.
TMZ reported Thursday afternoon that sources say Eddie’s in the early writing stages of the project. No word yet on which original cast members would return because he’s still tinkering with the plot. So, it really could happen, but the mystery is how it ended up on Twitter.
I beg you, Mr. Murphy. Make it like the last one. Don’t worry about a good story. Just get Akeem and Semmi together and have some fun. Plots are over rated.
