Sexual Chocolate! Eddie Murphy Will Star In 'Coming To America 2,' Craig Brewer To Direct

The Royal Penis will be cleaned…again.

That’s right, audiences will be going back to Zamunda (and probably Queens) in a sequel to the classic ‘80s comedy “Coming to America.” Hopefully, this means that Randy Watson and Sexual Chocolate will have a reunion, as well.

Deadline is reporting that Craig Brewer, director of “Black Snake Moan,” “Hustle & Flow,” and the upcoming “Dolemite is My Name,” has been hired to helm the long-awaited sequel to the Eddie Murphy comedy. And yes, before you start picketing your local McDowell’s, Murphy is poised to return to his role of Akeem in the sequel. Arsenio Hall, Shari Headley, John Amos, and James Earl Jones are all being asked back for “Coming to America 2,” as well.

“After many years of anticipation, I’m thrilled that ‘Coming to America 2’ is officially moving forward,” Murphy said. “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.”

Let’s not understate things, either. “Classic” and “beloved” are the bare minimum I’d use to describe the characters that were born from “Coming to America.” Outside of the aforementioned Akeem and his loyal servant Semmi, the 1988 comedy bestowed upon audiences Randy Watson, Soul Glo heir Darryl, Lisa’s little sister Patrice, as well as Morris, Clarence, Saul, and Sweets from the Queens barbershop My-T-Sharp.

The new film will focus on Akeem, who must venture back to the States to find his long-lost son and apparent heir to the throne of Zamunda. Writer Kenya Barris (“Black-ish”) has come aboard the project to rewrite the script that was penned by the original writers of “Coming to America,” Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield.

“Craig’s ability to create a distinct cinematic world with each of his films is not only impressive, but also what made him exactly the voice and vision we needed to bring this story to life,” said Barris. “From ‘Hustle and Flow’ to his work with Eddie on ‘Dolemite Is My Name,’ he never fails to blow me away. He is a true auteur and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on board.”

Sadly, there’s no word on a release date, but those working on the film hope to begin production sometime in 2019.
