Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall Spotted on the Set of ‘Coming to America 2’ [PHOTO]

COMING TO AMERICA

*As we previously reported, Eddie Murphy will reprise his role as Prince Akeem in the upcoming sequel of the 1988 film “Coming to America,” set for release August 7, 2020.

Thanks to Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter, we now have our first look at Murphy and and co-star Arsenio Hall at a fitting for the hotly anticipated film. Carter shared two shots Instagram Monday, one of her and Eddie holding her Oscar Award for her work on “Black Panther,” and the second pic of Hall admiring the golden statuette.

“GOOD MORNING MY NEIGHBORS!” Carter captioned the post. “It’s official! Preliminary fitting for Coming to America 2 with Prince Akeem Semmi and Oscar.”

Earlier this year, the 57-year-old comedian confirmed that a sequel to the hit comedy was in the works, more than 30 years after the original.

“After many years of anticipation, I’m thrilled that Coming to America 2 is officially moving forward,” Murphy said in a statement. “We’ve assembled a great team that will be led by Craig Brewer, who just did an amazing job on Dolemite, and I’m looking forward to bringing all these classic and beloved characters back to the big screen.”

The 1988 film is centered around a wealthy African prince who travels to New York in his search for a bride.  Hall played Murphy’s best friend. The film received two Oscar nominations for : Best Costume Design and Best Makeup.

The project will be directed by Craig Brewer (“Hustle & Flow) who will work from a script by “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris, who is re-writing a previous draft by original “Coming to America” writers, Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield, per comicbook.com.
