Arnold Schwarzenegger Sought for ‘Twins’ Sequel?

Arnold Schwarzenegger Twins 2 Arnold Schwarzenegger Sought for Twins Sequel?

When most people think of Arnold Schwarzenegger, they recall the action hero from Predator, Terminator, or Conan. Still, there is another  group of people who remember the Governator fondly for his comedy roles, such as in the 1988 film, Twins.

Alongside co-star Danny Devito, Schwarzenegger played the genetically superior twin brother of a small-time crook (who also happens to be small). The film, which was directed by comedy master Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters), was a huge box-office success and led the way for other comic roles later in Schwarzenegger’s career.

Now that Schwarzenegger is done with politics, and looking to get back into acting full-time, could Twins 2 be on the horizon? One report suggests it’s a definite possibility.

According to Australian site, What’s Playing, a source says that a sequel to Twins has been proposed by Universal. Here’s the full quote from the anonymous source: “Knowing Arnold, Danny De Vito and Ivan Reitman are all still in touch and want to work together again, Universal came to them about it. It’s a germ of an idea that could spread fast.”

Naturally, this doesn’t mean that anything will come to fruition, or even that the three men are interested in revisiting this film. However, it just goes to show how much interest there is among Hollywood studios in getting Schwarzenegger back on camera.

Terminator 5 with Schwarzenegger may be a semi reboot Arnold Schwarzenegger Sought for Twins Sequel?

So far, we know that Schwarzenegger is working with Fast Five director Justin Lin on a possible return to the Terminator franchise, but even that is in the early stages. Previous reports have claimed that Arnold’s next movie will be the drama Cry Macho or the action film The Last Stand. No matter what project Arnold chooses, it will be interesting to see how the 63-year-old actor fares in his return to the big screen.

Because so much of this news is unsubstantiated rumor, make sure to keep your eye on Screen Rant for more information on Arnold’s official upcoming project. In the meantime, debate the merits of  Twin 2 in the comments and check back soon for our thoughts on the five sequels that Schwarzenegger definitely shouldn’t make.

  1. Uuugggg.

  2. I would be game for a sequel. I loved the first film, and Arnold’s age could be used for some good jokes. Besides Ivan Reitman needs something to do now that Ghostbusters 3 is in development hell.

    • Amen the first film is a classic could be fun.

  3. I’m game. And get Cam Gigandet and the guy who plays Aquaman to be his sons.

  4. Oh, I get it. Every week, we’re going to get a rumor about Schwarzenegger sequel. I can’t wait to hear about “Kindergarten Cop 2: Summer Vacation” and “Running Man II: Full Sprint.”

    • I would pay to see BOTH of those. Just so you know: The Govenator comic book / cartoon is REALLY REAL.

  5. It could happen, Since Ghostbusters 3 is in the works, why not.

    • Really? Comparing this abomination to Ghostbusters 3? :)

  6. Calling this guy the Governator is offesive to us that had to deal with this CLOWN AND JOKE OF A LEADER for years in California.
    I wish him only the worst possible future, and may his life review be a long one. :)

    • This is Arnold Schwarzenegger not George W. Bush

      • He called the guy a clown so of course he wasn’t talking about Bush.

        California is so F’d up that no one can fix it. I have to give props to anyone, no matter their political bent, that wants to take that job. There is nothing that anyone can do to fix that train wreck of a state.

    • Yeah you’re right, let’s bring back Gray Davis.

  7. Wow, Hollywood studios are really big on mining the 1980s, aren’t they?

  8. Just saw FAST FIVE…. This Justin Lin is just the guy we need to bring life back to that dead franchise! Action without apology! AND BEST OF ALL NO CGI IN SIGHT!!!

    • And by “THAT FRANCHISE” I mean Terminator… Not Twins….

  9. Arine is finally making his comeback great, I hope it will great.

    Please no sequels to classics like Predator, The Running Man, Twins or Kidngarten Cop.

    Terminator 5 will hopefully great with Arine retutring as The Terminator.

  10. AWESOME! This now paves the way for Junior 2! Can’t wait!

    • That was my first thought too!

  11. You all know that if this does happen, you’re not required to go see it?

  12. RickJM, I hope you waste your time and money, cheers mate.

  13. The first was a fun movie.

    Watching Ahnold do comedy is like a fart in an elevator. It’s awkward and stinks, but it’s hilarious.

  14. Nautius, “It’s awkward and stinks” preetty much wraps up my feelings on how they can bring Arnold back into this already ruined franchise…
    At this point he’s been sucked emotionaly dry by state held power withdrawels. He’s an old crazy dce and it shows (Expendables cameo), but he’s still got the eye of the glory tiger, even if its the eye of the glory that’s kinda old hazy and hasbinish,,,

    He’s to be pitied at this point, its a disgrace,,, hopefully he’ll only do the voice over work if he comes back. Even then I couldn’t give a cyborgs output jack anyway, I can’t stand the guy.

  15. My thoughts are summed up in the line from above:

    “It’s a germ of an idea ” that needs a heavy dose of Vancomycin to kill it..

    Arnold was good in his heyday but I have no interest in seeing him do comedy poorly again..

    Nay I say..

  16. One question:


    Seriously. What the heck is wrong with Hollywood???

    A sequel to a nominally humorous movie from 20 years ago?

    No wonder the box office is in decline…

  17. I also thought “Twins” was a totally unfunny forgettable film,,,
    Looking back with what’s out these days, “Last Action Hero” rewatches pretty good for really the first action hero spoof.
    I’m upset that you can’t find a decent remastered widescreen print of it on dvd.

  18. This is a Hilarious idea that Arnold is returning in my opinion I titled that TWINS 2: Double Trouble

  19. i hope they do a second twins that movie was awesome and i think danny’s right get a good enough script together for it and personally it would be epic i love arnold and danny movies i wish they had done more together
