30 years ago Eddie Murphy starred as Prince Akeem in 'Coming to America'.

After years of a rumoured sequel, it looks like the follow up to the smash hit Hollywood film will come to life.

Eddie Murphy will star in a sequel that'll be scripted by 'Black-ish' creator Kenya Barris.  

The 1988 comedy almost saw the light in 2017 after director, Jonathan Levine and 'Coming to America‘s' original screenwriters were called up for the sequel but it didn't follow through.

“After many years of anticipation, I’m thrilled that Coming to America 2 is officially moving forward. We’ve assembled a great team that will be led by Craig Brewer, who just did an amazing job on Dolemite, and I’m looking forward to bringing all these classic and beloved characters back to the big screen” Murphy said in a statement.

The sequel will revolve around Murphy’s Prince Akeem returning to America to seek out his long-lost son, the heir to the throne of the African nation, Zamunda.
