Eddie Murphy is Joining Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in a ‘Twins’ Sequel, Because What Else Does He Have To Do?

Finally, after 24 years of holding our breaths, we FINALLY get the Twins sequel we’ve been asking for.  Screw The Dark Knight, screw The Avengers, and screw The Hobbit—a sequel to Twins is much more important.  Well mega-fans (all four of you), your prayers have finally been answered; Universal is developing a sequel to the 1988 comedy…eh, “classic.”  And, according to The Hollywood Reporter, guess who’s along for the ride!  Norbit superstar Eddie Murphy!

Oh yes, Mr. Murphy is joining the sequel, which will bring back Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as twin brothers Julius and Vincent.  Ah, but this time there’s a twist!  Apparently, there was a third triplet in the experimental batch of baby fetuses…cause that’s totally how child birth works.  Anyways, I think Murphy is perfect for this sequel.  Just like the project itself, no one really cares about Eddie Murphy in this day and age!  It’s like a match made in heaven.

Twins

So far, the film only has the three core stars to its name—no writer or director has been chosen yet.  Original Twins director Ivan Reitman is just going to be producing the film this time around, and Universal is currently in the process of finding a writer.  One would imagine that Eddie Murphy would enlist his bro Brett Ratner to direct the film, but Ratner is currently busy raping directing the sequel to another film from 1988, Midnight Run, with returning stars Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin.  Depending on when production begins for Triplets, I guess you could say that Ratner could do both films—but I’m sure Ratner would say that kind of cramming is for “fags.”  

Hey, he said it, not me.
