Now that the Governator’s stint in politics has come to a close, it looks like the film icon will be making a return to the movie scene. In addition to several other projects, including a sequel to The Expendables, Arnie is looking at jumping on board a follow-up to the 1988 comedy hit, Twins.
The proposed sequel would supposedly use Eddie Murphy as the third “twin” and bring back the original cast of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. The new movie would be called none-other than Triplets.
An interview with Arnie conducted by ComingSoon at the end of 2011 managed to capture his thoughts on the new flick. In his characteristically eloquent speaking style, he stated:
“I’d find somebody like Eddie Murphy or someone that people would say, ‘How does that happen, medically speaking?’ and, ‘Physically, there’s no way!’ Then, somehow, we would explain it. That would be hilarious with what we know about someone like him.”
“I can see a poster, a billboard with us three. ‘They found another one!’ ‘Triplets!’ ‘Only their mother can tell them apart!’ I would do that in two seconds, because that’s real entertainment. You come out with that movie for Christmas, like December 5th or something like that, and you’re home free.”
So yeah, it looks like audiences everywhere will be “home free” if this recycled potential mess makes it to the screen. Though with the actors not exactly at their youngest, it is a distinct possibility that one of them will be dead before production begins.
Thanks to the kids at ComingSoon for the heads up on this one.
