What’s this we here about a ‘Coming to America Sequel?’
Late Wednesday night, Eddie Murphy tweeted about a ‘Coming to America’ sequel that has left many people with mixed feelings.
The fact that Eddie posted a tweet to begin with is pretty unusual by itself considering Murphy’s Twitter account was almost entirely retweets and now the page no longer exists.
Most of the retweets were of his poorly-received new movie ‘Mr. Church,’ but this tweet was different. Murphy asked, “Coming to America sequel?” and included a picture of actress Vanessa Bell Calloway as Imani Izzi in her iconic gold dress.
There is still no indication about whether he was brainstorming, revealing secret plans, musing, or simply trolling. Regardless what Murphy was doing, he got a lot of people’s attention.
Many people, of course, were thrilled at the possibility of a sequel to the 1988 classic. Check out the tweets below:

I swear I will sue Eddie Murphy if he doesn't do this Coming to America sequel as promised. The kind people of Zamunda deserves this! 😳

And one person realized the concept might not work so well in President Donald Trump’s America.
@eddiemurphy I'm down but unfortunately the movie would only be 20 minutes long because Akeem was denied entry at the airport for "reasons".
