Just yesterday, a friend of mine was complaining about Wrath Of The Titans, saying how Hollywood today is entirely dependent upon remakes and sequels. I responded to this common complaint as I always do by agreeing but noting that relying on sequels & known properties is something Hollywood has been doing for decades, basically since its inception (and its follow-up Inception II: Still Dreamin’).
Then ONE DAY after dusting off my stock argument that Hollywood isn’t any more dependent on remakes today than it’s ever been, THR reports that a sequel to the 1988 Schwarzenegger/DeVito not-even-ironically-beloved movie Twins is in the works, and it’s co-starring Eddie Murphy and titled “Triplets” and it’s all over:
Is the world ready for a sequel to Twins? [Does a bear sh*tting in the woods think it's ready for a sequel to Twins? - Ed]
Universal and Montecito Picture Co. are hoping to develop a doozy of a follow-up to the 1988 hit comedy that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito that would reunite the two stars.
But wait, there’s a twist: In the new scenario, Eddie Murphy would act as a third brother.
Titled Triplets, the story would see Schwarzenegger and DeVito as brothers Julius and Vincent, conceived experimentally, who discover they have third sibling.
Bye! That’s everything. Someone be sure to tell Eddie Murphy to hit the light on his way out. #Things
