Triplets script gets thumbs up from Schwarzenegger, DeVito and Murphy

Triplets script gets thumbs up from Schwarzenegger, DeVito and Murphy

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito and Eddie Murphy have reportedly given the script to “Twins” sequel “Triplets” the thumbs up.

Screenwriter (and actor) Josh Gad tells MTV that, he’s heard all three reacted positively to the screenplay – which sees Murphy joining Schwarzenegger and DeVito as an unlikely third, twin brother.
“To my knowledge, they all flipped out for the final product,” Gad said. “Everybody is, from my knowledge, extremely happy with it.”

Gad, who will next be seen in Zach Braff’s “Wish I Was Here”, admits it wasn’t easy writing a film that had to please purists, as well as one that had to play just as well for those that hadn’t seen the 1988 original.

“We really tried to create a movie that respected what came before it, while it took into account that comedy has changed since that time,” Gad explained. “And people’s expectations have to be subverted a little bit in order to reasonably do a movie about Danny Devito, Arnold Schwarzengger and Eddie Murphy being brothers.”

He also had to come up with something commonsensical and worthwhile for Murphy to do in the film.

“Julius and Vincent were already kind of there for us,” Gad said. “But Eddie’s character for the movie is somebody that we tried to create, obviously something completely new, but something which also takes into account all our experiences, collective memories of Eddie Murphy through the years; whether it’s Axel Foley or his character from ‘Coming to America.’ What do we want to see him doing in this world?”

As part of his research, Gad forced himself to revisit some of the classic Eddie Murphy movies of yesteryear to get all his cadences right.
