The film, from director Michael Tiddes ("A Haunted House," "Naked"), will feature Wayans as Alan, a man who decides to meet his birth mother for the first time before the arrival of his first child.

Alan will also meet his brother Russell and discover that he was born a sextuplet.

Alan and Russell then journey together in order to meet the four other siblings, all set to be portrayed by Wayans.

Netflix posted on Twitter a behind-the-scenes photo of Wayans sitting in a makeup chair, hinting at the preparation the actor will go through in order to portray multiple characters.

Wayans is also a writer and producer on the project which enters into production in September. Netflix will release the film globally in 2019.

"Sextuplets" is the third collaboration between Wayans and Netflix after the comedian starred in the film "Naked" and hosted his own stand-up comedy show titled "Woke-ish."

"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.
