Although the sequel to 'Coming To America' was only announced a few weeks ago, a confirmed release date has now been set for it. Although the original director, Jonthan Levine, is no longer directing, it was later confirmed that Craig Brewer would be directing the film in instead.

The Washington Nationals and the Los Angeles Dodgers have been mentioned for Harper, too, though Nightengale believes they're out. The report of an eight-year, $250 million offer he got from the White Sox might not be accurate, according to Fancred Sports.

The "Coming to America" sequel is the second film to be set for August 7, 2020, following an untitled Warner Bros. event film. With that date announced, an official production start date and cast reveal shouldn't be too bad far behind, especially since the team will want to get the cameras rolling sooner than later. He is also in pre-production for "Triplets".
