“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.” Said Reitman. “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 in Coming 2 America, he got himself booked up heavily.”
“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.”
The original film ‘Twins‘ followed the reunion of Julius (Schwarzenegger) and Vincent (DeVito) – long-lost twins who were the product of an experiment to create the perfect child.
“Secretly, there was a third baby born, a black baby, who hasn’t been in touch with his siblings,” Reitman revealed. “They don’t know each other and very early in the movie they meet and it’s how they achieve a bond together after all these years. It’s really a film about family and, no matter how different we all are, we have to learn to get along.”
‘Triplets‘ will reportedly begin production in Boston in January.
