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.

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.
