Arnold Schwarzenegger says Eddie Murphy "loves" the idea for Triplets

06.26.2015

Arnold Schwarzenegger has plans to revisit several of his iconic characters, he will reprise his role of the Terminator in the upcoming TERMINATOR: GENISYS as well as having THE LEGEND OF CONAN in development; however there remains one character that fans want to see more than any other, that of Julius Benedict from TWINS. Do they though? You might by lying there Kevin.

Arnold Schwarzenegger sat down with Howard Stern earlier in the week to discuss his life and career and the topic of the long-in-development sequel to TWINS was brought up:

Now we are talking about a sequel, where we find out at the funeral of our mother, that when we read the will, that there’s three of us. Eddie Murphy is going to be the third one and so they say, ‘How did that happen’ then we have an African American coming in here and all of a sudden he’s our brother. So we go to do the research but he can only get the money if we find him, so now we have to get him involved.

The idea of a TWINS sequel which would bring together Arnold, Danny DeVito, and Eddie Murphy has been kicking around for a while, in fact the last we heard of TRIPLETS was that the script by Josh Gad and Ryan Dixon was complete, but that Universal had pressed the pause button for some reason. It seems as though work on TRIPLETS has resumed as Schwarzenegger mentions that the script is currently being fine-tuned. Eddie Murphy has never really given me the impression that he's on board with this whole TRIPLETS idea, but Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed that Eddie Murphy is game should the project move forward:

Eddie Murphy loves the idea. Danny DeVito and I had lunch with Eddie Murphy over at my house, and we talked about the thing, and we were laughing and laughing the whole meal through because it was such a funny idea. And of course, who wouldn’t like it.

TERMINATOR: GENISYS opens in theaters on July 1, 2015.

Cool.

Swell. I'm cool with this happening. If it sucks, it sucks. Certainly won't ruin my enjoyment of the first one. I'd like to see Arnold do another comedy, especially with DeVito, before he hangs it up.

Oh hell no

First off, TWINS was fine for its day, but I haven't heard anyone say, "That movie needs a sequel." Second, Eddie Murphy's talent has disappeared down an ego and cocaine-fueled rabbit hole, so much so that his presence in a movie is a reason NOT to see it (NORBIT, anyone?).

Schwarzenegger sound like he's flailing, trying to revisit all his old hits in the hope that he'll strike gold again.

"however there remains one character that fans want to see more than any other"
Who? I haven't heard anyone that wanted to see this movie made

Arnold, you're gonna have a bad time...

If you think you can successfully work well with Eddie Murphy. I just don't see their ego's jiving.

Eddie, Arnold, and Danny eating lunch together. I'd love to have been there for that! I like the idea of them being in a movie together. I hope the script is great, and this gets made!

I'd rather see that dinner turned into a movie: just the 3 of them sitting at a table eating and laughing.

Sounds awful. And by the current state of the reviews for the new Terminator, maybe Arnold should think about revisiting old characters.
