Almost thirty years have passed since the premiere of A Trip to America, but the story of the African Crown Prince played by Eddie Murphy has continued. Previously, the portal Deadline reported that the work on the sequel will involve Barry W. Blaustein and David Sheffield, who wrote the script for the original story. However, recently it became known that their place will be taken by one of the creators of "Black Comedy" Kenya Burris, and Jonathan Levin will sit in the director's chair.|
In the 1988 film, the plot introduces the viewer to Akim Joffer, the crown prince of the state of Zamund. On his 21st birthday, the parents, the king and queen, announce his upcoming wedding, but the main character has other plans for life. In order not to be married with one that he has never seen in his life, the prince fled to America with his friend Sammy (Arsenio Hall).
Back in 2013, during the air of The Arsenio Hall Show, Murphy and Hall insisted that a continuation was out of the question. The claim sounded convincing in light of the events following the film's release, when Art Buchwald involved the filmmakers in a string of lawsuits, claiming that the idea for the script had been stolen by cunning studio workers. However, Eddie later posted a message on social networks about a possible sequel. And only the fans had time to rejoice when the post was deleted, and the actor reported the hacking of his account.
Despite the fact that the existence of the sequel project is already confirmed information, there is not a word about the release date of the sequel. Fans who want to know what Murphy's hero has been up to all this time can only wait.
