Fans Are Losing Their Shit Over ‘Coming To America 2’ Rumours

1988 film Coming To America was an absolute comedy classic and grossed nearly $300 million dollars. It was the third highest grossing film of the year, despite not being shown to the press before release.

In it, Eddie Murphy, who plays the heir to an African Kingdom, travels to New York City in a bid to find his true love after rejecting his parent's arranged marriage.

Because it was such a hit, fans were gagging for a sequel to see what happened to Akeem Joffer (Murphy) and his bride Lisa (played by Shari Headley).

And after nearly 30 years - the people might just have what they've been waiting for.

Eddie tweeted this picture:

But it was quickly deleted, along with Murphy's entire Twitter account.

Unfortunately for Eddie's PR team, the tweet was up long enough for people to lose their collective shit:

According to TMZ, Eddie is in the early stages of writing the film but there's no word on who exactly would be cast.

Vanessa Bell, who played Imani Izzi in the movie, spoke to the celebrity tabloid saying how amazing it would be to get the crew back together.

Vanessa says, "I would love to do a sequel, I loved the movie. It's like come on Eddie let's make this happen!"

"I hope it is true, it would be a perfect sequel. Everybody, with the exception of Madge Sinclair obviously, everybody's still alive and I know everybody would love to do it."

"The movie was iconic - it's the gift that keeps giving."

Well we'll have to sit back and wait for the official call from a movie studio - but it's hard not to get a tiny bit excited at the prospect for a sequel.
