Universal Pictures has hired Josh Gad and Ryan Dixon to draft the screenplay to Triplets, the sequel to the 1988 comedy, Twins. In addition to featuring the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as unlikely brothers, the comedy will add a new sibling in the form of Eddie Murphy.
“I can see a poster,” Schwarzenegger told ComingSoon.net last year. “A billboard with us three. ‘They found another one!’ ‘Triplets!’ ‘Only their mother can tell them apart!’ I would do that in two seconds, because thats real entertainment. You come out with that movie for Christmas, like December 5th or something like that, and youre home free.”
Ivan Reitman, who directed the original, will return as producer.
