'Twins' sequel 'Triplets' in the works?

Looks like it could be “Twins” for actor Eddie Murphy!

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the comedian could soon star in a sequel to the 1988 comedy "Twins," starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito - playing their brother from another mother.

Universal and Montecito Pictures are said to be in talks about the follow-up film, "Triplets," which would reportedly recast Schwarzenegger and DeVito as brothers Julius and Vincent, who find out they actually have a third sibling, played by Murphy.

All three of the actors are said to have signed off on the project in theory, but sources tell THR it’s too early for specifics - the studio has yet to acquire writers for the project.

The would-be sequel doesn't have a director at the moment, either.

But it appears that 1988 was a very good year in Universal's eyes : the film studio is also reportedly developing a sequel to “Midnight Run” featuring Robert De Niro and one of the classic’s two original stars, Charles Grodin.

    Its probably going to be another bad Murphy movie. Bring back the "48 hours," "Beverly Hills Cop I, II", Eddie.

    Now...back to the topic at hand – "Triplets": This is an absolutely TERRIBLE idea for a movie. Eddie Murphy's about as funny as a hang nail; that comedic genius (and now saggy) Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to movie-making will be as sad and catastrophic and embarrassing as his terms as governor of Caleeforneeia; and Danny DeVito's days as a mutant movie star are far behind him. Ivan Reitman would do well to avoid this one like the plague...as I will if it ever gets produced.

    This is nothing more than a liberal sonspiracy to brainwash, and further dumb-down the American populace.
