Arnold Schwarzenegger And Danny DeVito Sign Up For Twins Sequel

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito have signed on for a Twins sequel.

The original film, which saw the big-name actors play long-lost, separated-at-birth twins, was a smash hit when it was released in 1988.

But they want to take audiences on another hilarious ride when they realise they were actually triplets, with Tracy Morgan playing their brother.

Director and producer Ivan Reitman told Deadline: "Twins was quite successful, and some years after, this whole thing started with Arnold meeting Eddie Murphy, and the suggestion came from one of them.

"It was, 'I should be a triplet, that could be a very funny comedy.' We started a script with Eddie, and after the success he had with Amazon Prime on Coming 2 America, he got himself booked up heavily.

"I'd been good friends with Tracy Morgan for a long time and always thought he was one of the funniest men in the world.

"I thought he would make a terrific triplet, and we rewrote the whole script for him. Now, we'll go out and try and put the money together and get it made."

Shooting will begin in Boston at the beginning of next year, so don't hold your breath on the highly-anticipated sequel coming out any time soon.

Reitman has shared what the official plot will be for the sequel.

"Secretly, there was a third baby born, a Black baby, who hasn't been in touch with his siblings," Reitman explained to Deadline.

"They don't know each other and very early in the movie they meet and it's how they achieve a bond together after all these years. It's really a film about family and, no matter how different we all are, we have to learn to get along.

"These guys have great chemistry together, and you can see that in the reel, and how much energy they bring out in each other."

Arnold has long wanted to make a sequel and told LADbible back in 2019 that he hoped to be able to get the team back together soon.

"For a long time I've dreamed about doing a sequel to Twins called Triplets," he told us.

"But people will say wait a minute how did that happen, two white guys, one black guy, what happened with the sperm, how many people participated in this whole thing? But that's funny."

We can't wait to see how it plays out.
