Eddie Murphy to join DeVito, Schwarzenegger in “Twins” sequel

PanARMENIAN.Net - A sequel to 80s comedy film Twins is reportedly in the works, with Eddie Murphy signed on to play Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito’s brother, NME reports.

Twins was released in 1988, starring Schwarzenegger and DeVito as a pair of unlikely twins separated at birth. It was a huge box office success, grossing $216 million worldwide.

In March 2012, Universal announced plans for a sequel under the title of Triplets. Schwarzenegger and DeVito were reportedly set to return, with Eddie Murphy portraying their long-lost brother.

After talk of the film went quiet, director Ivan Reitman has now confirmed that it’s still in the works. “We’re trying to get a script,” he said in a recent interview (listen in full beneath), confirming that Murphy is still on board.

DeVito meanwhile recently suggested that he could leave his US comedy series It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia after two more seasons.

The actor also spoke about the time Robin Williams nearly made him die with laughter, explaining: “He once almost killed me in a pool. I’m not a great swimmer, I was in the deep end and he was holding court, and I never laughed so hard – I swallowed a big gulp of water and choked for five minutes.”
