As we all know, 80’s classic comedy Coming To America is getting a sequel. Black-ish’s Kenya Barris has signed onboard to help pen the newest installment of the original film. Now what is unclear is who will round out the cast. Kevin Hart, and Micahel Blackson have both been suggestions that were circulating to tell the story of Coming To America 2. We recently spoke with Michael Blackson just before he hosted this year’s BET Social Awards. Blackson would tell Comedy Hype News he’s interested in being in the film and even suggested Atlanta as being the perfect place to get it done. As a native of Ghana, Blackson is definitely right when he says that he embodies the film’s spirit.
“We’ll see what happens….. what I would suggest ….. let’s go to another place that’s hot… Atlanta and deal with a new generation of crazy kids.. he’s (Eddie) brilliant, he’ll come up with something., Blackson told Comedy Hype News.
