After a string of flops and failures on the big screen, Eddie Murphy is finally set to film what is sure to be a runaway hit. The Coming To America star will team up with actors Arnold Schwarzengger and Danny DeVito to film a sequel to their 1988 comedy hit Twins, titled Triplets. It’s hard to imagine Murphy, Arnold and DeVito as brothers from the same mother.
From Hollywood Reporter:
Titled Triplets, the story would see Schwarzenegger and DeVito as brothers Julius and Vincent, conceived experimentally, who discover they have third sibling.
The project doesn’t have a director at this early stage — Ivan Reitman, who helmed the original, would only act as a producer with his Montecito Picture Co. cohorts Joe Medjuk, Tom Pollock and Ali Bell, according to sources — but the hunt is on for writers to develop the idea. Insiders caution that no substantial creative discussions have taken place between Universal and Montecito.
The actors are attached to star.
