There really isn’t much Josh Gad can’t do. He’s a Tony-Award nominated stage performer, a dramatic actor, comedic actor, a voice actor and even a writer. On that last front, Gad has long been attached to co-write a sequel to the 1988 hit film, Twins. The film is called Triplets and would once again star Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as the unlikeliest of twin brothers. Except, this time, they’d find out they have a new brother, played by Eddie Murphy.
It’s a concept that seemingly has been floating around for years, but in a recent AMA Gad offered an update. He said the script, which he co-wrote with Ryan Dixon, is done but Universal has it on hold. Read Josh Gad’s Triplets movie update below. Read More »

The film already has Will Ferrell lined up to play filmmaker Russ Meyer, who with Ebert created the film Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. This film plans to explore their friendship and working relationship, and the origin of that film. And if we see Josh Gad as Roger Ebert opposite Ferrell as Meyer, we have to assume it is meant to be quite the comedy as well. Read More »

Kevin Hart is angling to become the king of the January box office. His $41 million opening weekend for Ride Along earlier this year was the biggest ever for that month, and in fact was so impressive that a sequel has already been slotted for the same weekend in 2016. In between those is next year’s The Wedding Ringer, another buddy comedy.
This one stars Hart as a best man for hire who takes on one especially challenging client played by Josh Gad. Hijinks ensue, misunderstandings take place, and in the end, it’s safe to assume, lessons are learned about friendship, love, life, etc. Watch the new The Wedding Ringer trailer after the jump.
