“Tower Heist” star Eddie Murphy would join Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in follow-up to 1988 film
Eddie Murphy, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito could be sharing some brotherly love — or at least humor — on the big screen soon.
A sequel to the 1988 comedy "Twins" is in the early stages of development, a spokesman for Universal Pictures told TheWrap. The plan would be for Schwarzenegger and DeVito to reprise their roles from the Ivan Reitman-directed original, with Eddie Murphy coming aboard to play a third character — presumably, a triplet sibling to Schwarzenegger and DeVito.
Though the project is in the early stages of gestation, it's possible that Reitman could be involved in some capacity.
"Twins" starred Schwarzenegger as Julius Benedict, the product of a genetic experiment to create the perfect child. Bred and raised to be intellectually and physically superior but spiritually pure, he tracks down his long-lost sibling, the street-wise, criminally inclined Vincent (played by DeVito).
Since finishing his tenure as the Governor of California, Schwarzenegger has revived his acting career, appearing in the action film "The Expendables" and its sequel, due out in August. He'll also star in the upcoming thriller "The Last Stand," and alongside Sylvester Stallone in the Summit action thriller "The Tomb."
