Damn, I Was Hoping For A ‘Junior’ Sequel

There’s a Twins sequel in the works! Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito are both on board for the second installment which will be called Triplets. It gets better – Eddie Murphy will play the third brother!

Turns out, the twins, who were separated at birth and are at first unaware of each other’s existence, were a failure in that one is perfect and the other is a fat bald gnome with a criminal past.

Eddie Murphy would assume the role of yet another lost sibling. The character will probably be similar to Tower Heist’s “Slide.” Ivan Reitman, who directed Twins, will produce.
