It’s really happening, folks. After being dumbfounded earlier this year when it was announced that Eddie Murphy will be the third brother to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in a Twins sequel, Triplets, we got confirmation from one of the stars themselves that the project was indeed moving forward. Now we’ve got an update on who will actually be penning the illustrious script.
Contrary to previous reports, Ivan Reitman will not be returning to the directing seat, rather taking a producing role. The Hollywood Reporter also lets us know that Book of Mormon star Josh Gad, along with newcomer Ryan Dixon, will be writing the project. The duo will team for a treatment, while the latter talent (who also runs things over at ScriptShark) will be taking on the full script. Although no plot details have been given, this one will pretty much write itself, but hopefully the funny Gad can raise our hopes for this sequel.

He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
