Eddie Murphy Explains Why ‘Coming to America’ Sequel Didn’t Happen [Video]


To many, Coming to America is untouchable, but some are still vieing for a long-awaited sequel. Eddie Murphy stopped by good friend Arsenio Hall’s late night gab fest to talk about the film’s 25th anniversary and why a second movie never happened. While the two were constantly hounded to create another story, countless lawsuits kept them from doing so.

“There was some dude who was claiming he was the prince. I be out in the club and this African dude would roll up on me and say, ‘I am the real prince! You stole my life from me! And I want my money! I’ll kill you!,” he reenacted.

If a sequel never happens, we’d happily watch these two chop it up on late night TV every week.
