For many, including me, Coming to America is one of the best comedies of the 1980s and Eddie Murphy’s finest work.

Whether it needs a sequel or not is debatable. But like it or not, we’re getting one.

The original film’s director John Landis isn’t in charge this time but Murphy is back as Prince Akeem. He’s joined by Arsenio Hall who will reprise the role of Akeem’s best friend and Wesley Snipes has joined the cast as a new character.

Craig Brewer will direct the film having worked with Snipes and Murphy on Dolemite Is My Name, an new biopic about comedian Rudy Ray Moore.

The Hustle & Flow director will oversee the film, titled Coming 2 America, which is rumoured to see Akeem return to America to find his long-lost son.

Coming 2 America is set to start shooting in autumn.
