Kenya Barris, Jonathan Levine Tackling 'Coming to America' Sequel

Kenya Barris, Jonathan Levine Tackling 'Coming to America' Sequel”

That long-developing Coming to America sequel just took one major step closer to becoming a reality. Paramount has had an on again-off again relationship with this franchise follow-up, but earlier this spring the studio had officially given the project the green light, with original screenwriters Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield hired to pen the first draft for the sequel.

Jonathan Levine, the director of Warm Bodiesand 50/50, and Black-ish creator Kenya Barris are tapped to direct and write the sequel.

It also reports that Eddie Murphy is involved with the new film, but it is unclear if a deal has been put in place for him to star. Levine will be taking the reigns behind the camera while Barris ia on board to rewrite the script. Hollywood veteran amusing man Eddie Murphy, who starred in the 1988 classic, now a staple in the homes across America, teased the possibility of a part 2 in a now deleted tweet that featured Vanessa Bell Calloway from the film with the caption: "Coming to America sequel?"

The comical classic also featured stand-out performances from Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley and John Amos.

Barris' Black-ish has received numerous Emmy nominations for its deft handling of comedy and race in America.
