Fox Developing Film Adaptation of Stage Musical F***ING IDENTICAL TWINS

Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson's hit Upright Citizens Brigade musical F***ING IDENTICAL TWINS will soon make it to the big screen.

According to Deadline, FOX is adapting the stage show, a take on THE PARENT TRAP, alongside Chernin Entertainment. Sharp and Jackson, who also starred in the production, will pen the script.

F***ING IDENTICAL TWINS, with music composed by Karl Saint Lucy, is described as: "When Trevor and Craig, two business adversaries, suddenly realize they're identical twin brothers, they decide to switch places, reunite their divorced parents and become a family again. But there's a few problems: Dad is too busy f-ing sewer boys, and Mom's vagina fell off her body and crawled away! Will Trevor and Craig be able to reunite THE FAMILY they never knew they wanted? Also, it's musical. Basically 'The Parent Trap' if it happened to horrible, disgusting people."

The show premiered at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre-NY before heading out west to UCB-LA.
