Neighbors, just about everyone is excited for the sequel of “Coming to America” to drop next week. The movie is set to have a star-studded cast including Teyana Taylor, Davido, Rick Ross and more! What’s interesting is that the movie was also set to include Michael B. Jordan but it appears Eddie Murphy put a stop to that. 

During an interview with The NY Times, Murphy shared that there was another version of the Coming to America sequel pitched by Black Panther director Ryan Coogler.
