AceShowbiz - Arsenio Hall is set to team up with Eddie Murphy once more in a "Coming to America" sequel.
Paramount Studios chiefs announced in January that Murphy would return as Prince Akeem, an African prince who fled to Queens, New York to avoid an arranged marriage in the original 1988 comedy.
Reports over the weekend (July 20-21) speculated over Hall's return as Prince Akeem's assistant Semmi, and the funnyman took to Twitter to confirm the rumours on Monday.
"Arsenio Hall Officially Confirmed For 'Coming to America 2'," he wrote, linking to a Moviefone.com article claiming he would definitely reprise his role.
"Hustle & Flow" filmmaker Craig Brewer will direct the flick, which is set for a 2020 release, with "Black-ish" creator Kenya Barris reworking a script by Barry W. Blaustein and David Sheffield, who wrote the original.
Plot details are scarce, but according to Deadline, the movie will feature Akeem returning to America to meet his unlikely heir.
