‘Coming to America’ sequel in works with original writers

LOS ANGELES, Apr 15:  Paramount Pictures has hired Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield, the screenwriters of the 1988 Eddie Murphy comedy “Coming to America” to pen a potential sequel.
The project is in the early stages of development and it is currently unclear whether Murphy would reprise his role as Akeem Joffer, a pampered African prince who travels to New York City undercover to find an independent-minded wife, reported Entertainment Weekly.
John Landis directed the original film, which also starred Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, and Shari Headley. (PTI)
