From Deadline:
EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Pictures is setting Craig Brewer to direct Coming To America 2, finally bringing to the starting gate the sequel to the 1988 blockbuster comedy. Eddie Murphy is poised to reprise his role as Akeem, the pampered African prince who became bored of potential marriage partners in the kingdom too in awe of him, and who traveled to Queens to go undercover and find a woman with a strong will that he could respect.
Kenya Barris is rewriting a script by original Coming to America writers Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield. Murphy is producing with Kevin Misher and Barris is exec producer.

In the sequel, Akeem learns about a long lost son, and must return to America to meet his unlikely heir to the throne of Zamunda. The intention is to bring back the original cast which includes Arsenio Hall, who played the prince’s aide Semmi; Shari Headley, who was courted by the prince when he went undercover as a fast food worker; John Amos, who played her father; and James Earl Jones, who played the king.
Release date is August 7th 2020.

I watched the half of movie that is not in America and thought it was incredible but my interest quickly dropped off after that. Still this is fun.

Didn't he just have one woman during his time in the US which he married in the end?

Then you didn't actually watch the movie since that part wasn't even close to half the movie.

Go back and do it right this time!

twist: the kid is going to be Semmi's kid, and he thinks his dad is Akeem because Semmi told the kid's mom he was a prince in order to get her to bang him.

SEMMI on the other hand would totally have a lost kid.
I'm calling it right now.

The plot twist is going to be that it's Semmi's kid and the mother only thinks it's Akeem's because Semmi was pretending to be Akeem to get laid


EDIT

twist: the kid is going to be Semmi's kid, and he thinks his dad is Akeem because Semmi told the kid's mom he was a prince in order to get her to bang him.
This man knows what's up

And I will be there day one. I always wanted to return to Zamunda.

Heres hoping Micheal B. Jordan plays the role of the long lost son.

Or the guy that plays in cloak & dagger.

as far as i recall it is implied he had sex with a lot of women on his country, so the story could be one subject getting pregnant and fleeing the country or something

This only makes sense, if Akeem slept with other women and thinks there’s a possibility that he has an illegitimate child. But he knows he didn’t, so any claim would just be ignored as hogwash.

This makes more sense.

Everybody saying "how is this possible" or "he wouldn't have had a kid!" ... maybe that's the whole point of the plot?

"How could I have a child? I cannot possibly have a child!"
Goes back to America to solve this mystery, comedy ensues.

I can see Akeem getting worked from a local queens girl right after that bar scene.

You could do alot of things after that scene.
