Schwarzenegger looking forward to 'Twins' sequel

A sequel to "Twins" is inching closer to the big screen.

One of the stars of the 1988 comedy, Arnold Schwarzenegger, recently told Comic-Con attendees that the reported follow-up is underway, CinemaBlend reports.

"I think they have moved it along, and director Ivan Reitman has shown interest in being involved, [studio] Universal is excited about it," Schwarzenegger said. "We are now looking for a great writer to write the sequel, and I'm looking forward to doing it, because I think it will be hilarious."

Back in March it was rumored that Eddie Murphy might even join Schwarzenegger and his "Twins" co-star Danny DeVito in the film, thereby turning the "Twins" sequel into one called "Triplets." Although Schwarzenegger didn't mention it, all three of the actors are said to have signed off on the concept.

Up next for the actor/politician is August's "The Expendables 2," which he helped promote this week at Comic-Con.

    Can I just say what a reduction to seek out somonee who truly is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know the best way to convey an issue to gentle and make it important. More folks must read this and understand this facet of the story. I cant believe youre no more fashionable since you definitely have the gift.

    I wont ever see any of his movies after what he did to California as a governor. He was a puppet and did very wrong with contract negotiations for the CDCR. Get a life nobody. Just my opinion.

    • your right, my bad

      he did make damaging political errors, but we need to forgive and the right thing for him to do is donate some terminator movie earnings to california...its a way of saying hey i'm sorry.

  6. SLY AND ARNOLD.

    You also have Sylvester Stallone(who is going through a terrible tragedy right now) and Arnold in the Expendables 2 also. these 2 olders guys are still box office sellers...its going to be great to see these 2 action movie actors together for the first time.

    They are older men...but they are hot and still will are box offics smashes. Do the math folks.

  7. NO SINKING FRANCHISE0397

    there is no sinking franchise and Eddie Murphy has also been offered a role and there is no anchor discussions involving this article.

    SS Gropenfuhrer was a nazi and also has no significance to this article..Expendables 2 next...next gross will be 200M
    easy. excellent come-back

    Yeah, if you have a sinking franchise, that is drowning under it's own weight,
    Eddie Muphy is just the anchor you want to bring on board to set things right.

    SS Gropenfuhrer headed for da bottom.

    Please go away it hurts to see and hear your stupid voice. How is your kid from your stupid maid? He sure fooled California into voting for him, knowing he had this in his past, then he leaves us worst off than when he took office because he didn't know what the hell he was doing. I wish he would just go back to where he came from.

      everybody makes mistakes–politically he didn't do well, he did see that woman..he made the mistakes and he trying is fix them..i don't see the problem, as long a person addresses his issues and trying to fix it i say he deserves the chance. everyone screw up at some point and deserves the chance to fix himself.

      Arnold outlook: he has been forgiven and most will see all the movies and he will make millions all over again and he's still hot.

    Glad someones excited about the movie. Frankly I don't relish the thought of an aging action star with a turkey v@g neck hamming it up.(Damn, getting old myself.) Devito will kill no matter what though, even if he has to work against what I imagine will be rather sketchy writing.

      Saw the show in Georgia last night. Bright, glaring lihtgs low at back of stage blasting the audience in the eyes made watching the actual performers completely impossible. Where did these people get their ideas about lighting? Absolutely ridiculous, but something that can be easily corrected. Until they fix this problem, I would not encourage anyone going to the show. What I could see of the dancers (often only on the projection screens) showed how absolutely fantastic they are. Too bad the production company is in a totally different class. Also, the bass was WAY too loud. Focus should be on the dancers, not the disabling lihtgs and over the top sound volume.

    Eddie Murphy is still funny. I saw him in "Tower Heist". I thought it was a funny/decent movie. They should just do a comedy together instead of a "Twins" sequel. Oh well.. whatever floats one boat. I would still check it out. Who knows.. As for the "The Terminator" I thought Arnold said he was going to do another, but, that was going back when he was the Gov. I hope he would do another.

    arnold looks almost as bad as chuck norris. Ugly as donkey poo. It always was a laugh to see chuck try and be a bad a$$ when in fact he is a sissy. Now arnie is alright but dude leave the action films to those who can actually run still. Oh yea....norris likes to take it in his poop chute..a true fairy..lil beotch

      That's right! We need more young, talented comedians like Tyler Perry to continue doing those ingenious and highly original angry-black-man-in-a–fat-woman's-suit flicks. Those are so highly entertaining and deserve to be shown on the big screen! I circle the calendars whenever a new one is coming out. Ohh gee, where will Madea turn up next?!!!!!!!!!!!
