Marlon Wayans will take on six lead roles in the upcoming Netflix comedy Sextuplets, the streaming giant announced Monday.
According to a synopsis from Netflix, Sextuplets tells the story of Alan (Wayans), a man on a personal journey to meet his biological mother before the arrival of his first child. When Alan meets his brother, Russell, he discovers he was born a sextuplet and decides to find his four other siblings (all played by Wayans).
The film will see the actor and comedian re-teaming with Marlon actress Bresha Webb.
Wayans, who previously partnered with Netflix on the 2017 film Naked, said he jumped at the chance to work with the company again.
“Excited to be in business with Netflix on yet another project. I love how they embrace comedy and diversity. I am looking forward to doing the thing I love most… comedy,” he said in a statement.
Wayans will produce the film as well as co-write with Mike Glock and Rick Alvarez. Michael Tiddes (A Haunted House and Naked) has signed on to direct.
Production on Sextuplets starts next month in Atlanta. Netflix will begin streaming the film globally in 2019.
