“Twins” Sequel To Star Schwarzenegger, DeVito, and Eddie Murphy [VIDEO]
Yep... Hollywood ran out of original ideals a long time ago.
Universal and Montecito Picture Co. are planning a follow-up to the 1988 hit film "Twins", reuniting Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito for the first time since 1994's "Junior". But for this film, they won't be alone. Joining the cast would be Eddie Murphy as a brother the genetically engineered twins were not aware of. And yes, the film is to be titled "Triplets".
Currently, the actors are attached to the project, but no director or writer as of yet. "Twins" director Ivan Reitman will be returning as a producer, along with his regular producing collaborators Joe Medjuk, Tom Pollock and Ali Bell.
A sequel like this is long overdue as the original came out 24 years ago. For a reasonable sequel, this should have been done before the end of the 90s, while Schwarzenegger, DeVito, and Murphy were all still decent names in films and had better reputations. As of right now, neither of the three main actors for this film are viewed in the best light by the public or Hollywood. None of them have had a decent film in years, and the personal lives of Schwarzenegger and Murphy have been tabloid fodder for a while now. I'm not convinced that this movie will actually be made, but if it does, it has a long road ahead of it to be worth watching. The first film was very unique for the time and was truly funny. Its a movie I still enjoy watching today. But a follow up like this scares me to death. There have been far too many sequels/remakes over the past few years that are so bad that it harms my enjoyment of the original, and this looks like its already on its way to be one of those.
