Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito to follow up Twins with Eddie Murphy in Triplets

by | 30th, March 2012

WHAT you’re about to read is one of the most disturbing and potentially brilliant things you’ll ever digest. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito will be revisiting their awful family comedy, Twins. If that isn’t a weird enough notion in itself, they’ll be drafting Eddie Murphy for this sequel, which will be called Triplets. 

Yes. You heard.

The brothers Julius and Vincent are going to discover that they have a third genetically-conceived sibling and that person just happens to be Eddie Murphy who will no doubt be itching to play as many characters in the film as he can (as opposed to, y’know, sticking to one character and making it half decent).

According to reports, Schwarzenegger, DeVito and Murphy are all signed up for this obviously terrible idea. However, it is such a godawful notion, that it will surely be a must for those among you who love watching a carcrash unfold.

A source implies:

“Universal thinks it’s a horrendous idea but don’t want to upset Schwarzenegger.”

If you remember, Twins was a success back in the late 80s, grossing $216m worldwide from a pretty small budget. And with the three actors starring in absolute duds and doing very little of late (unless you count Arnie’s secret lovechild he had with his maid), they’ll be desperate for a box office hit. Desperation and bad-comedy almost guarantee a film becoming a cult-favourite eventually.

Just imagine future stoners settling down with Triplets, watching Eddie Murphy allowing Arnie and DeVito to stick huge nails through the coffin of his career.

It could be magical.
