Over 20 years later, the sequel to the 1988 comedy “Coming to America” is now officially in the works, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Craig Brewer, whose projects include “Hustle & Flow,” “Footloose” (2011) and several episodes of the TV series “Empire,” has been selected to direct the film.
Brewer is currently working with Murphy on “Dolemite Is My Name,” a biographical film based on the life of Rudy Ray Moore.
Production has not officially been scheduled but is expected to begin in 2019.
