I really hope this sequel is the big screen comeback/hit that Eddie deserves.

Eddie's youngest daughter Bella is making her film debut in CTA2. She is reportedly playing one of his daughters in the movie and, according to her mom, had to audition like everyone else.

Unlike the first film, Eddie says the new movie will be rated PG-13.

I guess they think it will allow more people, or younger people, to go see it.

Probably so, but I guess they won't be saying the F word all the time.

Oh well. It isn't needed.

Nope, but it was funny at times.

She’s also awesome in it. Okay. I want to jump into Coming 2 America, if you don’t mind. I am curious, how did the project land in your lap? Was it because of your relationship with Eddie and how well this worked out?
BREWER: Coming 2 America had been in development and there had been a script that the original writers, Bloustein and Sheffield, had written and then Kenya Barris came along and did a reworking of it. Then, really, it was Eddie that brought me the project. I think that not only that, but I’ve made four pictures with Paramount Pictures.
Sure.
BREWER: I think that they kind of saw that the spirit of the movie was kind of in my wheelhouse a little bit. They got an early screening of Dolemite.
I’m sure that helped.
BREWER: They saw it very clearly. So, that’s how the project came to me.
I posted something Coming 2 America at Cinema Con and I could not believe the level of interest that came out for the movie.
BREWER: When the trailer came out? Right.
Just that little… I tweeted something and it exploded. I’m just curious, are you guys aware of the level of interest in it?
BREWER: We are. It’s both exciting and daunting, but I feel like we’re doing the right thing with it. I really do. We know that it means a lot to a lot of people. We want it to be really really funny, but we also need it to have some heart and soul because it means so much to so many people.
Well, one of the things that is so beloved about the first one is Eddie and Arsenio and people playing multiple characters and having fun. Is that the case in-
BREWER: It’s all happening again.
Right. I love it.
BREWER: It’s all happening again. I’ll tell you what, having just wrapped shooting with James Earl Jones, was just one of the best things that has ever happened in my life. Yes. He’s so wonderful. To see King Joffer again… you got to remember, the thing that I think what I hope people will like when they ultimately see Coming 2 America is that it’s 30 years after that fairytale ended. Not ended, but the fairytale of Coming to America we saw. That we saw a young couple come together in a fairytale. Well, now they’re parents. Now they’re dealing with what happens when you’re 30 years later. To have the alchemy of what’s happening in the audience, where I am bringing my teenage children to see Coming 2 America… when I was their age when I saw Coming to America… the same thing that’s happening in the audience is happening on the screen. It’s really refreshing to see.
I have to ask you about James Earl Jones and stepping on set. I mean, it’s James Earl Jones. What is it like, A, directing him and, B, when he’s walking on set to play this character, do you get that sense? Do you feel that energy?
BREWER: Yeah. The mixture is that there’s reverence because it’s James Earl Jones, but there’s also such intense love that there would be times that I would see him do a line of dialogue and I would just want to look back at the crew and to see that many just grinning faces, just taking in the joy of watching him do King Joffer again was something I’ll never forget.
For people that aren’t familiar with the… how have you been describing the film to people, besides what you just said about 30 years later?
That’s pretty-the best way to do it. Akeem’s in a… he’s got to start thinking about being a king now and all the troubles that come with being a king.
My last thing for you is where are you in the production schedule? Are you just filming in Atlanta, or are you filming other places?
BREWER: Primarily in Atlanta.
Sure.
BREWER: With occasional trips to Zamunda.
Where are you in the shooting schedule?
BREWER: I think we’re about half way.
Congrats on this.
BREWER: Thank you.
