Tracy Morgan is set to star in Coming to America 2.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Morgan will play a character called Reem, a hustler who is the brother of Leslie Jones’ character, who has a one-night stand with Murphy’s alter-ego Akeem.
As well as Jones, Wesley Snipes and Kiki Layne are among the new cast members.
The original motion picture saw Murphy play Akeem, a prince from a fictional African nation who travels to New York to try to escape an arranged marriage and find a wife.
The new film – which will again feature Hall as Akeem’s best friend – will see the prince head back to the US to try to track down his long-lost son.
Craig Brewer will direct the project for Paramount, and Murphy will produce alongside Kevin Misher and Kenya Barris.
Murphy recently said in a statement: “After many years of anticipation, I’m thrilled that Coming to America 2 is officially moving forward.
“We’ve assembled a great team that will be led by Craig Brewer, who just did an amazing job on Dolemite [Is My Name], and I’m looking forward to bringing all these classic and beloved characters back to the big screen.”
