Arnold Schwarzenegger stopped by Reddit today for an “Ask Me Anything” session and dropped an interesting piece of information: the Twins sequel is still happening and Danny DeVito and Eddie Murphy are on board, too.
The Ivan Reitman-directed comedy was one of the biggest hits of 1988 and has made over $200 million worldwide on a $15 million budget. Rumors of a sequel have been circulating for a while now and have mostly been propelled by Schwarzenegger himself (notably at Comic-Con last year). The word is that Triplets will add Murphy to the clan of brothers.
According to IMDB, Reitman is set to direct and 1600 Penn’s Josh Gad is writing the screenplay for Universal.
As Julius Benedict once said, Arnold, “if you choose to bluff, you must be prepared to have your bluff called.” So far, he doesn’t have to worry. Triplets looks like a go, and Murphy and DeVito’s reps confirmed their involvement. We’re excited to find out when they think they might start shooting. In the meantime, let’s all brush up on our favorite Twins quotes.
