17 March 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans who followed comedy superstar Eddie Murphy on Twitter were treated to quite the surprise on Wednesday night, when the actor's verified Twitter account posted the cryptic tweet "Coming to America sequel?" along with a photo of Vanessa Bell Calloway's character, Princess Imani.

The actor himself doesn't actually tweet, since he has a social media team to do that for him, and the deleted Coming to America 2 tweet wasn't authorized by him, »
