Arnold Schwarzenegger is Enthused About ‘Triplets’

Published 2 years ago by , Updated July 24th, 2013 at 9:31 am,

Some may have thought they were the victim of an April Fool’s Day prank (as many were by our own masterful deception), but indeed, a sequel to the Danny DeVito / Arnold Schwarzenegger odd-couple comedy Twins is on the way – and it’s pretty much what we predicted it would be.

Triplets will see DeVito and Schwarzenegger’s estranged twin brothers discovering that they are in fact part of a trio, when they stumble upon their long-lost sibling who will be played by Eddie Murphy.

Well, Coming Soon actually learned that Triplets would be happening awhile back when they spoke to Schwarzenegger himself about his other upcoming film projects (which include The Expendables 2 and the action/thrillers The Last Stand and Schwarzenegger/Stallone teampup The Tomb). See what “Ahnuld” had to say about the project while it was still in the early stages of development:

“I would love to do another ‘Twins… As a matter of fact, we’ve been talking about doing one and it’s called ‘Triplets.’ 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.”

We can’t help but brag about the fact that – back when Arnold was first announcing his return to acting – our own Paul Young predicted that a Triplets movie could happen. That it has Murphy starring as the new brother (we suspect a “brutha / brother” joke is somewhere on the horizon) is only icing on the cake, as the dramatic irony regarding the contrasting physicality of the principal actors is what made Twins such comedic gold in the first place.

While some people were nauseted at the thought of this project, it seems many more have acknowledged that the sequel at least has the potential to be a hilariously good time – not to mention, a good boost for Murphy and Schwarzenegger’s film careers. Oddly enough, it’s DeVito who is currently the most successful actor out of the trio – what with his role as Frank Reynolds on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and a recent box office cash-grab voicing the titular character in The Lorax.

We’ll keep you updated on the development of Triplets as more news comes to light.

  1. It was better when I thought this was an April fools joke.

    • No kidding.
      We’ve all heard of films that are considered “Oscar Bait” but I think this is the 1st film to be ” Razzie Bait.”

    • Twins 2. Movie script: Beetroot McKinly. survived the gun shoots at his car but was sent to prison for his roll in the theft of the fuel injection system and the murder of the two rocket scientist. In prison he meets up with the twin brother of Webster. together they hatch up an idea to get revenge on Vincent and Julius. The Benedict Corporation is now a successful military contractor providing research and development of high tech computer systems. The company is located on the Island were Julius was raised, some 200 nautical miles south, south west of Fiji. The company is run by both sets of twin boys.. 2 of Vincents sons and the 2 from Julius.. The casting is hilarious, as One is tall and stocky built and the other is short and pudgy..each teaming up with their opposite cousin.. Beetroot hires Eddie Murphy.. who plays a mad scientist hired to steel the original Baby batter, used to produce the worlds first super human person. Eddie Murphy then uses it to create an Identical set of clones of Vincent and Julius. The idea is to kidnap them so they can be replaced by the clones..who will then take over the Benedict corporation.
      An amazing set of comical twist and turns occurs as the real Vincent and Julius try to escape their captives.. and save the world from their evil twins.. Look for a cameo by the McClain Boys.. who come to their rescue..at the request of Marnie and Linda.. This movie will have you laughing uncontrollably . script copy right.. by Eddie Vuittonet, in behalf of Madre Seca films.

  2. This entire concept is causing me pain. Can I sue?

  3. Why….why?

  4. I could go for some light-hearted Ahnuld comedy. I loved Twins and Jingle All the Way. And as the big A alluded to, I could totally see myself coming out of the theaters, having watched Triplets, and just grinning from ear to ear.

  5. Will somebody please stop the madness!!!!!
    I would have loved to be in the room when this was pitched.
    I’d like to think there would be 1 person who would question the merit of spending millions on a film like this.
    Even though he has the better career right now Divito would be the lowest paid and Arnold and Murphy likely will be pocketing over $10 million a piece.
    I’m sorry but we are over a decade past the 90′s when Arnold and Murphy were still box office draws. So again I’d love to know who in that room thought this was a good idea? Besides Eddie and Arnold.

    • actually more than two decades, dumbass…. and as far as i’m concerned, i’d rather watch this than another stupid comedy about teens smoking pot and trying to score with chicks

    • I’ll tell you, when Twins came out it was pretty much condescended to just as a mention of sequel is being condescended to now. It’s the magic of DeVito and Arnold that made Twins a good escape hatch, regardless of a silly script (though, just silly enough to earn many fans).

      Let’s look at today’s comedies. Nothing but over the top, hit you over the head with period blood and fecal matter jokes, gay jokes, blah blah…how refreshing it would be to see some situation comedy from these pros with just enough edge to keep it interesting but not repellent?

      It’s got my vote. And when I go to the theater to see this multi million dollar entertainment investment, I’ll be humming quietly; “Tonight is your night, bro!” Tonight is your night, bro..”, because I know that even if it’s awful, it was the thought that counted..and I appreciate the notion of a sequel to TWINS.

  6. So either your a muscular savant a short bald thief or Eddie Murphy???

    • If your triplets (sorry watching Twins)

  7. This is utter madness…and I love it!
    Isn’t a pairing of Arnold with Murphy onscreen something Tarantino wanted to do initially with Basterds?
    If Reitman does not want to come back then I would love to see Devito direct this. The first twins was not too family friendly if you rewatch again.

  8. Just when I thought Arnold was going to make a great comeback with action movies like The Expendables 2, The Last Stand and The Tomb then this news comes along.

    Seriously a Twins sequel, Twins 2? This could be the worst sequel since Indiana Jones 4.

    Leave the original movie the way it is.

  9. This will get worst movie of the year the year its released!

  10. why not?a little comedy would be good…why does everything have to be about bullets and explosions?

    It’s also better he does it than some green hack remaking one of his movies

  11. So you’re going to have Arnold as the straight guy, and Devito as the little street smart hood, so what’s Eddie? Another street smart hood who like Danny was dumped someplace like a ghetto environment? Nice doctors….”We have one perfect child….Dump the other two”

    • Arnold as the straight guy, Devito as the street smart hood and Murphy as the smartass…….comedy gold right there :D

  12. Please let this happen!!!

  13. This film could be really funny.
    I would also love to see a film like expendables but a comedy with the good ole comedians.

  14. Told Darth Vader about this and he said and i quote, “Noooooooooooo!!!”

  15. Lol at West. But i still want to give that movie a chance. DeVito and Murphy are great comedians!!! :)

  16. Eddie and Nick Nolte should do ‘ Ah Crap, Not Another 48 Hours???’.

  17. Eddie and Nick Nolte should do ‘ Ah Man, Not Another 48 Hours???’.

  18. Dear Eddie,

    I have been a fan since your legendary SNL days. In 1986, I sat through The Golden Child twice to wonder why you would’ve agreed to star in that ‘ish’…You were genius in Coming To America, Boomerang, and Life.

    You are soooooo better than playing third wheel in this straight-to-Redbox bootsy project.

    We get that you loved Elvis, but why do you insist on having an Elvis-like filmography?

    Run, don’t walk from this, bruh.
