‘Coming 2 America’ turned Rick Ross’ Georgia mansion into a palace

Both Murphy and his employee/friend Semmi, played by Arsenio Hall, took a seat for an interview with The New York City Times, and discussed that their vision of Zamunda was sort of like the method individuals saw Marvel’s Wakanda.

“We never show you the history of the country. We just are. We’re like Wakanda,” Murphy informed the publication.

Hall included that it was really “perfect” shooting the follow up in Atlanta, since it’s “very hot” like Zamunda which it was enjoyable to pretend Ross’ home was a palace.

Murphy included, “Yeah, his house is so big, we literally were able to dress it and make it look like a palace. That stuff you see where I’m walking on the African plain and there’s antelopes running — that’s Rick Ross’s backyard. He has like 300 acres or something.”

While Murphy states he’s thrilled for individuals to see the movie, it was expected to be an entry back into the spotlight for him, and he intended on doing standup after it was launched. That’s considering that been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The plan was for all of us to be doing standup. When I got up off the couch and did this little patch of work, it was, let’s do ‘Dolemite.’ Let’s do ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Let’s do ‘Coming 2 America.’ Because I want to go do standup again, but I don’t want to just pop up out there when people hadn’t seen me be really funny in a while. I didn’t want to do standup after the last movie you’ve seen me do is ‘Meet Dave.’ Let me remind them that I’m funny. And then the pandemic hit and we had to pull everything back. But when the pandemic is over and it’s safe to be around people, I’m going to go do standup again.”
