'Twins' Sequel 'Triplets' in the Works for Arnold, DeVito...and Eddie Murphy (Exclusive)

Is the world ready for a sequel to Twins?
Universal and Montecito Picture Co. are hoping to develop a doozy of a follow-up to the 1988 hit comedy that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito that would reunite the two stars.
But wait, there’s a twist: In the new scenario, Eddie Murphy would act as a third brother.

Titled Triplets, the story would see Schwarzenegger and DeVito as brothers Julius and Vincent, conceived experimentally, who discover they have third sibling.
The project doesn’t have a director at this early stage -- Ivan Reitman, who helmed the original, would only act as a producer with his Montecito Picture Co. cohorts Joe Medjuk, Tom Pollockand Ali Bell, according to sources -- but the hunt is on for writers to develop the idea. Insiders caution that no substantial creative discussions have taken place between Universal and Montecito.
The actors are attached to star.
This wouldn’t be the first sequel to an 1988 film that Universal is working. The studio is developing a sequel to Midnight Run that sees Robert De Niro, one of the film’s two original stars along withCharles Grodin, returning in an incarnation to be directed by Brett Ratner

LOL. Hollywood's run out of ideas.

The first one was pretty funny though.

LOL. Hollywood's run out of ideas.

They could always wait about six months and then remake Twilight.

Give it time, they probably will.

I'm waiting for a remake of "The Godfather", with Pauly D as Don Corleone.

Hollywood's getting lazy. They save money on marketing by making remakes.

Since people already have an idea what it's about, they're more likely to go watch it.

Sad really, because there are a TON of movies that Hollywood lately that should have stayed in the past.

Devito is still funny on It's Always Sunny. Schwarzenegger was always a favorite of mine growing up. Why not?
