Did Eddie Murphy Really Hint at a ‘Coming to America’ Sequel?
Shortly after the announcement of a Matrix reboot, something nobody was really asking for, Eddie Murphy hinted at the possibility of a Coming to America sequel, something people have wanted to see for nearly thirty years.
On Wednesday night, Murphy tweeted the following:
However, the actor and comedian quickly deleted the message—along with his entire Twitter account.
Vanessa Bell, the actress who played the African woman Eddie Murphy’s character, Prince Akeem, was supposed to marry in the beginning of the movie, gave a brief interview to TMZ about the possibility of a sequel.
“I would love to do a sequel,” she told TMZ. “I loved the movie. It’s like come on Eddie let’s make this happen!”
Bell also mentioned that she hasn’t spoken to Murphy in years, and acknowledged the fact that his Twitter account could’ve been hacked. Nevertheless, she still hopes the deleted tweet was Murphy’s own words and that it will ultimately get the ball rolling on a sequel to the 80’s classic.
The original film tells the story of a spoiled African prince who runs away from his life of luxury to find his bride in Queens, New York. Sounds logical, doesn’t it?
This isn’t the first time in recent memory that audiences were given the possibility of seeing one of Murphy’s most iconic roles return to the big screen.
In June 2016, Variety reported that Paramount Pictures signed Belgian directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to direct Beverly Hills Cop 4—more than twenty years after the third film was released.
