It Looks Like That 'Twins' Sequel w/ Eddie Murphy Attached Isn't Quite Dead...

Eddie Oscar

We want to do Triplets, but we’ve got to get Universal off of its butt. We’ve got to get a script. [Arnie and I] had dinner with Eddie Murphy, and he likes the idea. It’s been going on for six or eight months now. We don’t want it to be fluff just because it’s Twins 2. We want it to be great.

Danny DeVito in an interview with Shortlist.com.

I was actually hoping this project was dead and buried for good - the proposed sequel to Twins, which will be titled Triplets, and will feature Eddie Murphy as the third brother. But apparently, it's still alive, somewhat.

No script yet, according to DeVito, and they don't want it to be "fluff;" they all want it to be great!

Is that comforting?

I barely recall the first film, and will need to watch it again. But the fact that I can't remember much about it, likely means that it didn't do much for me, and was forgettable.

Last we wrote about it, in the summer of 2012, Ivan Reitman was said to have shown interest in directing it, and Universal was excited about it, and a writer was being sought.

The original hit comedy that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito and this sequel would reunite the two stars, with the twist being that Eddie Murphy would act as a third brother, as the first two brothers discover that they have third sibling.
