Josh Gad updates the world on Triplets, the Twins sequel

When Josh Gad isn’t performing on stage, acting in movies, or doing the voice of Olaf for kids at the grocery store, he’s writing. For one reason or another he decided to co-write (with Ryan Dixon) a sequel to the 1988 hit film TWINS which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. We talked about it a few years ago when Eddie Murphy was put in the mix to star alongside the original cast as their new brother.

In a recent AMA done to help promote THE WEDDING RINGER Gad offered a few updates to someone who actually cared enough to ask:

1) 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.

2) Well, the lives have changed in that the two of them find themselves at a major crossroads where they’ve sort of grown apart over the years and what winds up bringing them together is a 3rd brother they never knew they had who could potentially be played by Eddie Murphy…

3) The answer to that is: most likely not, just because I wrote the film as a fan of the original movie TWINS. It was never written for me to be in it. Having said that, there is currently a role in the movie where Arnold has a son that looks like Danny, and Danny has a son that looks like Arnold. That could be fun, but as of right now, I have no intention of being a part of it.

So Universal isn’t sure if the world wants a TWINS sequel it looks like, even if the script is supposedly a golden ticket.  It would be 30 years since the original if this thing was released in the next few years; do people who watched the original care anymore? Perhaps if they put in some hot teens and made it dystopian it would get an audience. Also, how much do you want to bet that soon enough Murphy will be out and Kevin Hart will be in?

Do you want to see a TWINS sequel?

I want this movie very very much! And to the point below me: Dumb & Dumber To was actually a modest success and could pave the way for more long term sequels with a lower budget.

This looks to be part of a growing trend like Sin City: Dame To A Kill and Dumb and Dumberer to of the much too late sequel.

I think what we all really want is a remake of Junior as a straight-up horror movie.

I feel about like you do. Eh, sure. I liked the first and I think this will probably be stupid, but if it looks to be good I'll watch it. If it's like Dumb and Dumber To is compared to the original, I'll pass.
