Wait…it’s not April 1st yet is it? Hmm, apparently not. Ok then. Um, Twins, the 80s comedy featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito is getting a sequel and it’s one which would not only unite the two actors but also introduce a third brother into the mix – Eddie Murphy.
For those of you who don’t remember, the first film was about an experiment to create the perfect man by combining the DNA of several men. Said experiment led to the specimen that was Julius (Arnie) – a genius who was raised in seclusion on a small island – but also the left over runt that was Vincent – who turned out to be a street-smart con-artist. It wasn’t a total disaster and had some funny moments (it’s a damn sight better that Junior that’s for sure).
At the moment, it’s just an idea that’s being thrown around by producer Ivan Reitman but he’s teaming up with the Montecito Picture Company to find a writer for the project. All three actors are attached but whether it’ll actually happen still remains to be seen. Reitman won’t be directing this time round so step up aspiring directors, this could be the best or worst move of your career!
Well, Eddie Murphy hasn’t been funny since 1988 – coincidentally the same year that Twins was released – so he could probably use a boost. Not sure this is the best way to go though…
