15 Nov 2012
Book of Mormon Tony Award nominee Josh Gad will work with writer Ryan Dixon on the script of "Triplets," the upcoming "Twins" sequel for Universal Pictures, according to Deadline.com.
In the film, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito will reprise their roles as the mismatched siblings with Eddie Murphy attached to play the third brother. Ivan Reitman, who directed "Twins," will produce.
Gad was Tony-nominated for his performance as Elder Cunningham in The Book of Mormon. He has also been seen on Broadway in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and is known for his television work, which includes "The Daily Show," "Back to You" and the upcoming NBC comedy "1600 Penn," among others.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
