Arnold Schwarzenegger - Triplets to be 'tongue in cheek'

Subscribe to Arnold Schwarzenegger


'Triplets' will be ''tongue in cheek''.

The comedy sequel to 1988 film 'Twins' will see Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Devito return - joined by a third brother played by Eddie Murphy - and while it will pay homage to the original, screen writer Josh Gad says it will include much more modern comedy.

He told ''We're very reverential to the original, but have our tongue firmly in our cheek. As it needs to be, it's very modernised. It's taking them into the new world and it's acknowledging that comedy's changed a lot in 20 years.

''If you saw 'Twins' and it was released as a movie currently, you'd be like, 'This is really strange,' so we honour that and respect it, but we also play on it.''

Earlier this year, DeVito said he was excited about the film, but was waiting for the right script to come along.

He said: ''Arnold and I have had dinner about it. We met with Eddie Murphy. Universal is very excited about doing it. It's just a matter of finding the script that we like and a story that works.''

Josh has previously written mainly for TV, penning episodes of 'Gigi: Almost American' and '1600 Penn', both of which he also appeared in. He has teamed up with Ryan Dixon, who wrote the story for forthcoming film 'Opening Night', on the screenplay.

A date for the start of filming on 'Triplets' has yet to be decided.

i just watched twins (i been skipping it ok lol) this could work if they bring both danny and arnold back together like this years dumber & dumber 2 but this time with a 3rd brother from their 7 fathers that did it with a black woman, half brother Murphy, if their going to modernize the comedy part then they need to pay homage to when the first came from by playing 80's music, trust me going back two decades for the music for this is going to be great kind of a breath of fresh air cause personally im tired of modern music in sequels of 80's films, pick the right songs people love and remember then they'll be alright, plus if this is going to work then we need all 4 main characters back even the 2 females they need to be already living as a big family when things get out of control (it wouldnt hurt to have DeVito accidentally be the cause of it) if they do all that then triplets will be great trust me.
