Another original cast member from "Coming to America" will be back for the sequel.

Shari Headley is joining "Coming 2 America" as Lisa McDowell, who married Eddie Murphy's Prince Akeem at the end of the first film.

Also returning from the original are Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Paul Bates and John Amos. New additions include Wesley Snipes and Leslie Jones.

In "Coming to America," Prince Akeem (Murphy) journeys to America from his wealthy African nation of Zamunda to escape an arranged marriage and find a wife who loves him as a person, not for his royal status.

In the sequel, Akeem returns to America after learning about his long-lost son who is the heir to the throne.

"Hustle & Flow" director Craig Brewer is directing from a script written by "Black-ish" creator Kenya Barris.

"Coming 2 America" is slated for release December 18, 2020.
