Arnie Talks Twins Sequel ‘Triplets’

Twins 2 - Sequel Plans (Triplets) - Arnie Talks
Last week, Universal was planning a sequel to Twins, entitled Triplets, starring returnees Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, and newcomer Eddie Murphy. I took this as a clear indication that our alien puppet masters had finally revealed reality as we know it to be naught but a giant cosmic joke, so I might as well stick my hand in a toaster. Ouch. Can Arnie soothe the pain of my singed paw with some reassuring words about the project?

Twins – a 1988 hit for Universal, a movie which launched Arnold Schwarzenegger on his increasingly ill-starred forays into comedy filmmaking, and, if we’re honest, a mostly reasonable spot of viewing on a rainy Sunday morning. Not, however, a flick crying out for the follow-up treatment.

Which meant that Universal’s sudden announcement of a sequel, Triplets, was always likely to attract hoots of derision – especially given that a script has not even been written yet, and that Universal has, in recent years, torpedoed far more fan-friendly projects, such as The Dark Tower and At the Mountains of Madness.

But if the public are scarcely enthused about the prospect of a team-up between DeVito, Murphy and Schwarzenegger, then that is not an apathy shared by the granite-hewn latter; at least not according to some comments from last year which have just surfaced in the wake of the Triplets announcement. Here’s what the big lug had to say:

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.

Er, ‘someone like him’? Help yourself out here, Arn.

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.

Apparently it is, y’know. Sigh.

    Arnie is twins with Danny DeVito. Arnie is pregnant with Junior and Danny DeVito is the doctor. The next logical step is that Arnie gives birth to Danny DeVito. Why is that not happening?

    If Arnie were to get back into making films, I would have expected him to go back to what made him famous originally, Action movies. Spose he’s already in expendables 2.

    Would have love to read that Arnie was back for the next Predator.

    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.
