‘Twins’ Sequel ‘Triplets’ Gets Delayed

‘Twins’ Sequel ‘Triplets’ Gets Delayed

Back in November 2012, Universal Pictures hired actor/screenwriter Josh Gad and his partner Ryan Dixon to pen the screenplay for the long-awaited Twins sequel entitled Triplets. We haven't heard anything about the project since then, but the comedy will bring back Twins stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, with Eddie Murphy joining the cast as the brothers' long-lost triplet. Josh Gad held a Reddit AMA session yesterday for his new comedy The Wedding Ringer, in theaters next weekend, where he revealed that the Triplets script is done, but Universal apparently is contemplating whether or not to move forward with the follow-up."Uh, you know... the script is actually done. Everybody agrees that it's great. We wound up doing 2 drafts. Universal, I think, hit the pause button temporarily for whatever reason - internally I think they are trying to figure out if they want to do a sequel or not. I would say if there's an outpouring of affection, that may move the needle, but I think it's on hold right now. But everybody read the script and loved it, so I hope it sees the light of day at some point. It's there and in great shape.

Twins was released December 8th, 1988.
