It is definitely the year of remakes and sequels. After the success of the Lion King 2 it will be interesting to see how the comeback of another old school movie will be.
Eddie Murphy’s hit film, Coming to America was recently announced as one of the 80’s movies to also be joining the sequels list. As if that was not exciting enough, we have been hit with another interesting news. South Africa actress, Nomzamo Mbatha will be adding the needed African spice to the movie.
According to Hollywood Reporter:
“Nomzamo Mbatha and Garcelle Beauvais have joined the cast of Coming 2 America, Paramount’s sequel to its popular 1988 comedy.
They round out a cast of newcomers and returnees for the film, which stars Eddie Murphy and is being directed by Craig Brewer. The pic is set to begin shooting next week.
Tracy Morgan, Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones and KiKi Layne are among the new castmembers, while Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones and Shari Headley are among those reprising their original roles.”
