Eddie Murphy has blocked a “Coming 2 America” reunion as part of Josh Gad’s new viral initiative because he won’t return the “Frozen” star’s calls.
Gad has brought the casts of “The Lord of the Rings”, “The Goonies”, “Splash”, and “Back to the Future” together via his Reunited Apart virtual hit but he admits there’s one group of actors he’s failed to regroup.
“I’ve been dying to do the cast of Coming to America but apparently Eddie Murphy does not want to return my calls,” Gad tells “Good Morning America”, revealing he’s also working on a “Ghostbusters” get together and has plans to regroup the stars of “The Princess Bride” and “Beetlejuice”.
“There’s so many that I want to do, but I’m excited about the ones we have in store.”
Ironically, the “Coming to America” cast have been getting together – Murphy and company have been shooting a sequel to the 1988 comedy, in which Eddie played an African royal navigating life in New York as he hunts for an American bride.
