Danny DeVito, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Eddie Murphy to star in Twins sequel

You guessed it, it's called Triplets

Eddie Murphy's recent comedy A Thousand Words has been dubbed "the worst film of all time" by sections of the American media. However, that hasn't stopped him climbing back on the horse, as THR reports Murphy is set to join Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito for Twins sequel, Triplets.

Murphy will be playing the long lost brother of the original duo, with the entire concept for the movie presumably built upon that improbability.

If you'll recall, the original had Schwarzenegger and DeVito as twins who were born in some kind of secret lab. Arnie got all the good genes, leaving Danny with the rest, thus "explaining" their disproportionate sizes.

We're not quite sure how they'll write the existence of an African-American brother into proceedings, but we're sure they'll manage somehow. At this stage, there's no director attached, but original helmer Ivan Reitman will return to produce.

"The story has to be right," said DeVito when recently asked by Collider about a possible sequel. "But I've always thought we should do something to work together again." So long as Brett Ratner stays well away, we'll keep an open mind...

Do you want to see a Twins sequel? And is Murphy a good fit as the new brother? Tell us, below.

      I don't know, could be quite funny. Surely Arnohlt's running and shooting days are numbered so it makes sense that he would go back to the comedy movies again. For some reason I find the idea of three completely different looking (sizes colour and nationalities) guys who find out they are triplets quite funny.

      WHY?!?! Twins wasn't all that good to begin with. Why strangle the concept with a geezer-version? Eddie: Change your style. You've allready proven you can (Dreamgirls). Arnold: If you're gonna do a sequal, make a revenge version of The Running Man where you're forced or trapped back into the game as the only man who ever truely escaped it alive. DeVito: ....grow up!

      Hollywood digging up another film they can give the sequel or reboot treatment to. Are we really that surprised?

      I don't see the problem, the original was rubbish, was anything else will be an improvement.

      lol horrible idea. Speaking of DeVito I have just discovered It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia on Netflix UK and I have to urge anyone who's not seen it to do so, it's absolutely hilarious. Dayman Champion Of The Sun !!!!!
