Rumors of a Coming To America sequel have been circling for some time, but then, rumors about new Eddie Murphy projects are a dime a dozen.

Prince Akeem is officially coming (back) to America.

Paramount Pictures bosses have tapped Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer to take charge of the follow-up to the hit 1988 comedy, in which Murphy played an African prince on the hunt for a wife in NY.

Brewer helmed both Hustle & Flow and the 2011 Footloose remake, but recently he's been directing a number of episodes of the TV series Empire.

Black-Ish's Kenya Barris is now re-writing a script by the original writers of Coming To America, Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield.

The upcoming sequel will mark the second collaboration between Brewer and Murphy, who filmed the upcoming biographical comedy Dolemite is My Name last year which is expected to hit Netflix sometime this year. Murphy is producing with Kevin Misher and Barris is exec producer. "We've assembled a great team that will be led by Craig Brewer, who just did an fantastic job on Dolemite [Is My Name], and I'm looking forward to bringing all these classic and beloved characters back to the big screen".

There is no production or release date for the "Coming to America" sequel.

The statement seems to suggest the cast of the original will be back, which includes Arsenio Hall, Shari Headley, John Amos, and James Earl Jones.

The story sees Akeem returning to America when he learns of a long-lost son and unlikely heir to the throne of Zamunda.

Brewer is repped by WME and attorney Carlos Goodman, and Murphy is WME, ML Management and Ziffren Brittenham's Matt Johnson and Skip Brittenham; Barris is CAA, Artists First and attorney Gregg Gellman. "From Hustle & Flow to his work with Eddie on Dolemite Is My Name, he never fails to blow me away". We're nervous and skeptical about this one, but mostly we're just hyped.
