Coming 2 America has been a sequel in development for quite a while. It’s one of those concepts that we knew had been factored in when developing the storyline; it just took a long time to prepare for the screen Any movie that takes this long is going to undergo a lot of changes as it evolves, and Coming 2 America is certainly no exception While the main story has remained. intact, Eddie Murphy recently revealed to CinemaBlend that the original plan was to make Tracy Morgan his son

Coming 2 America sees Prince Akeem’s Eddie Murphy’s character discovering he has a son, which prompts him to return to America to connect with him.This core seems to have always invented the idea for the sequel, but as Eddie Murphy explained to our own Eric Eisenberg, at the start of the idea, and for several years afterward, Tracy Morgan was expected to play the role of son Murphy explained

Tracy Morgan was going to be my son Three years after writing, Tracy was the son, still What changed was we met Tracy a few times and we were like, ‘Tracy is the same age than me How are we going to make this credible

Of course, selling Tracy Morgan as Eddie Murphy’s son would probably have been a tall order Eddie Murphy is only seven years older than Morgan and, although they both look rather well for their age, Morgan doesn’t look so young that he could easily pass as Murphy’s son Instead, the film ended up playing Jermaine Fowler, almost 30 years younger than Murphy, as the son.In addition, Tracy Morgan played the boy’s uncle.It’s certainly a more realistic place to put Morgan It’s understandable that we want to make Tracy Morgan the son of Eddie Murphy, but even for a comedy there’s an issue with suspending disbelief that would likely make the entire movie look weird.

Of course, now you have to consider what a version of Coming 2 America would look like with Tracy Morgan as son Jermaine Fowler is funny, but Tracy Morgan has a pretty unique style that he brings to her comedy and you can be sure. that no one was planning on playing the guy in Coming 2 America In the movie trailers, we see the boisterous Tracy Morgan character collide with the much more reserved Prince Akeem, and we can only assume that ‘originally the plan was for the sun to be like this

It certainly would’ve made for another Coming 2 America whether it would’ve been better or worse, we’ll never really know we’ll need to see the sequel itself before we can even begin to imagine Coming 2 America coming out on Amazon Video on March 5
