'Coming To America' is getting a sequel titled 'Coming 2 America'...pretty clever huh. According to the movies original screenwriter, David Sheffield, was personally called by Eddie Murphy to pen a draft of the sequel.
"It began with the notion that Eddie['s character Prince Akeem] has to find his son, who can become the king because the country has this tradition that the eldest male [will take the throne]," Sheffield continued. "So it's Eddie pursuing his long-lost son, who’s an American. That was the basis of it. That was the beginning."
