Coming to America just got a premiere date and it has been confirmed Eddie Murphy will STAR in the flick. More insie...

Coming to America is gearing up for a comeback 30+ years after the original.

We already told you lead star Eddie Murphy was attached to the sequel, but it wasn't clear whether or not he would star in it. Now, we know.

Paramout Pictures confirmed the 57-year-old actor will star in the upcoming sequel, set to hit theaters next year. Details about the plot are being kept low key for now. Will the African prince Akeem and his wife Lisa still be married and happily in love? Will the sequel follow the life of his heir to the throne of Zamunda? So many questions.

There were a few hints a sequel might have been on its way before the official announcement in 2017.

In 2016, Vanessa Bell Calloway got all glammed up in her Princess Imani outfit for a photoshoot and she totally nailed it. Also, Vanessa and her co-star Shari Headley (who played Lisa) got dressed up in their costumes to celebrate Halloween on the “Steve Harvey Show." Check it out HERE. We're keeping our fingers crossed at least one of the ladies return for the sequel.

The good news is Kenya Barris has signed on to executive produce and Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Empire) will direct, so it's in good hands.

The Coming to America sequel is set to hit theaters August 7, 2020. We're here for it.

Life is looking good for Eddie. The Hollywood actor/comedian and his fiance Paige Butcher welcomed a son, Max Charles Murphy, last year. Now, he's a father of 10.
