Eddie Murphy A new Coming 2 America
The Eddie Murphy led sequel is set to hit Amazon Prime in March after the streamer’s purchase of the film for $125 million. Coming 2 America will follow Murphy’s Prince Akeem and his best friend, Semmi, played by Arsenio Hall, as they return to America to find Akeem’s long lost son. As shown in the first Coming 2 America trailer, it is Akeem’s father (James Earl Jones) that asks him to find his son and train him to become the next king of Zamunda.
Along with Murphy, Hall, and Jones, Coming 2 America will feature a slew of familiar faces, including Shari Headley, John Amos, and Garcelle Beauvais. Joining them are newcomers to the series Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Kiki Layne, Jermaine Fowler and Wesley Snipes. Coming 2 America will also feature the return of the various characters played by both Hall and Murphy. Hall’s Reverend Brown and barber Morris are returning, as are Murphy’s soul singer Randy Watson and barber shop owner Mr. Clarence.
