Josh Gad Reveals 'Twins' Sequel is Finally Ready

Josh Gad says the script for 'Twins' is ready and the movie is ready to be produced.

As the premiere of The Wedding Ringer draws closer and closer, Josh Gad is ramping up promotion with other steamy details. One of the things Josh Gad revealed in recent review that Hollywood is planning a Twins sequel, Triplets. The upcoming twins sequel was rumored to re-team Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito with Eddie Murphy. Josh Gad was attached as a co-writer on the project in 2012. Here is what Josh Gad said:
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 [whether Gad will star as well as write> 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. [Reddit via /Film]
With Kevin Hart's recent rocket to success, it is a good chance this movie can get made with Kevin Hart as a lead actor in the Twins sequel. Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook. On Twitter, follow us at @projectcasting. Photo Credit: Fixist.com
