'Sextuplets': Marlon Wayans Will Play Six Lead Characters In Upcoming Netflix Comedy Film

Marlon Wayans has set another role at Netflix.

He and his Marlon co-star, Bresha Webb, will star in the upcoming film Sextuplets. 

The film's description: "Sextuplets tells the story of Alan (Wayans), a man embarking on a personal journey to meet his birth mother before the arrival of his first child. When Alan meets his brother, Russell, he discovers that he was born a sextuplet and decides to seek out his four other siblings (all played by Wayans). Together, the two brothers set out on a road trip to track down the rest of the family that they’ve never known, and Alan quickly realizes he may have gotten more than he bargained for."

Michael Tiddes, who directed Wayans and Regina Hall in Netflix's Naked, will also direct this film.

“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,” Wayans said in a statement.

The film is written by Wayans and his production partner Rick Alvarez along with Mike Glock.
