Twins, the 1988 comedy film starring The Terminator's Arnold Schwarzenegger and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Danny DeVito and directed by Ghostbusters' Ivan Reitman, is finally getting a sequel.

As reported by Deadline, work is finally getting underway on Triplets, with filming set for January 2022 and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan cast as the third unlikely brother.

"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," the director told the publication.

"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."

As Reitman mentioned, they are going to put the feelers out to get potential buyers interested, with Deadline reporting that a sizzle reel featuring the three leads is about to be sent round.

We at Digital Spy thought that Eddie Murphy's Coming 2 America was a decent time, if not as good as the original. Hopefully, Triplets is more worth the 33-year wait, especially with 'Werewolf Bar Mitzvah' hitmaker Tracy Jordan on board.
