Coming 2 America, the sequel to the 1988 hit movie Coming to America, has started filming, and Eddie Murphy, James Earl Jones, Arsenio Hall, and Garcelle Beauvais are returning to reprise their roles from the original movie, we don’t know much details about the new characters. But now we have some information on one new character, thanks to an interview with Hey You Guys and Wesley Snipes at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Snipes was asked what he could reveal about his character, and while slipping into the thick African accent of the character:
“I’ll be playing the bad guy. He’s not really a bad guy, he’s just a misunderstood guy. His name is General Eazie, and he is the General who is next door to him. They’re trying to work it out so that the two kingdoms can come together. It would be better for everyone if the kingdoms can come together. If they don’t come together i think there is going to be some sadness all around there. Some people are not going to be too happy.”
Check out the video below, as it’s pleasant to hear Snipes give the description in his own voice. Murphy is also talked to at the start of the clip but only reveals that the film started shooting two weeks ago and says that it’s going grand and he feels thinks the movie will be really special.
Coming 2 America will hit cinemas on December 18, 2020.
