Yes, you read that headline correctly. Tracy Morgan will join Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DaVito who are returning to reprise their brotherly bond.
33-years after Ivan Reitman brought the unlikely comedy of Twins to the big screen he has figured out how to make a sequel… a long lost third brother played by comedian Tracy Morgan. Reitman goes on to say:
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.
The film will like start filming in the new year around Boston. Is this a good idea? Who knows. I won’t judge until I see some footage.
