33 years later… a ‘Twins’ sequel is finally happening!

According to Deadline, ‘Triplets,’ the upcoming sequel to ‘Twins,’ will shoot in January in Boston. They have enlisted Tracy Morgan to play a third and long lost sibling, as the two brothers, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Danny DeVito, find out they are part of a trio. Schwarzenegger and DeVito are reprising their roles from the original film. The movie will be directed and produced by Ivan Reitman, who also directed and produced the original movie back in 1988.

Twins was quite successful, and some years after, this whole thing started with Arnold meeting Eddie Murphy, and the suggestion came from one of them,” Reitman told Deadline. “It was, ‘I should be a triplet, that could be a very funny comedy.’ We started a script with Eddie, and after the success he had with Amazon Prime on Coming 2 America, he got himself booked up heavily. And we knew we were going to make it at the beginning of next year. I’d been good friends with Tracy Morgan for a long time and always thought he was one of the funniest men in the world. I thought he would make a terrific triplet, and we rewrote the whole script for him. Now, we’ll go out and try and put the money together and get it made.”
