The film’s sequel, titled Triplets, will reportedly enlist the help of Tracy Morgan to play a third and long list sibling of both Schwarzenegger and DeVito. The script for the film will be written by Dylan Dawson & Lucas Kavner, with production scheduled to begin in January in Boston. The film was initially supposed to star Eddie Murphy, but Reitman mentioned that following his recent success with Coming 2 America, he was too busy to join the film.

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,” Reitman told Deadline. “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 on Coming 2 America, he got himself booked up heavily. And 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.”

“Secretly, there was a third baby born, a Black baby, who hasn’t been in touch with his siblings,” Reitman said while describing the upcoming plot of the sequel. “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. These guys have great chemistry together, and you can see that in the reel, and how much energy they bring out in each other.”

The original Twins was released in 1988 and followed the story of Vincent (DeVito) and Julius (Schwarzenegger), two unlikely twins who were separated at birth and come together later in life. The film was a massive success at the time, earning $216 million worldwide at the box office, and quickly became a fan-favorite for years to come.
