Actor/comedian Eddie Murphy took to his personal Twitter account late Wednesday night to tweet out something usual for him. With his account usually full of re-tweets, this time Murphy posted something that got the Internet buzzing, a possible sequel to the beloved Coming to America. Along with the caption, “Coming to America sequel?” a photo of actress Vanessa Bell Calloway as Imani Izzi in her iconic gold dress is attached.
Along with Murphy and Calloway, the 1988 classic also starred Arsenio Hall. Check out a sampling of the reactions below. In other movie news, Warner Bros. state they are working to reboot The Matrix with Michael B. Jordan as the next Neo.

I swear I will sue Eddie Murphy if he doesn’t do this Coming to America sequel as promised. The kind people of Zamunda deserves this! ?

@eddiemurphy I’m down but unfortunately the movie would only be 20 minutes long because Akeem was denied entry at the airport for “reasons”.
