“Superior Donuts” star Jermaine Fowler is set to play one of the leads opposite Eddie Murphy in the comedy sequel “Coming 2 America” at Paramount Pictures.
The original starred Murphy as a charming African prince who travelled to New York City to escape an arranged marriage, only to fall in love. Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, and John Amos co-starred in the smash hit with all but Amos expected to return.
Specifics of the plot and Fowler’s character are under wraps. Craig Brewer (“Hustle & Flow”) is on board to direct the film which is targeting an August 7th 2020 release.
Barry Blaustein, David Sheffield and Kenya Barris worked on the script with the latter executive producing. Murphy is producing alongside Kevin Misher.
