While Arnold Schwarzengger’s return to the film world has been a bit rougher than he likely expected, the actor has a couple of projects in the works that are poised to resurrect some of his previous characters. One such project is a sequel to the 1988 Schwarzenegger/Danny DeVito comedy Twins, aptly named Triplets. The pic is poised to reunite Schwarzenegger and DeVito onscreen with their long-lost sibling, played by Eddie Murphy. Last year Josh Gad and Ryan Dixon were tapped to pen the screenplay for the film, but news on the project in the subsequent months has been quiet. However, while promoting his latest film Frozen, Gad recently provided a promising update on the project and discussed the tone of the script in relation to the original movie.

When Arnold Schwarzenegger announced he was ready to get back into the movie business following his tenure as Governator of California, no one was really expecting him to dive headfirst back into Hollywood. Cut to 2012 and the actor has already shot a substantial role in The Expendables 2, just wrapped his “comeback” starring role in The Last Stand, and is poised to team up with Sylvester Stallone for the actioner The Tomb. Oh yeah, and a Twins sequel. Just last week we learned that Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito are planning to reprise their roles from the 1988 comedy Twins in a sequel called Triplets with Eddie Murphy playing their long-lost sibling.
We got the chance to speak with Schwarzenegger in a recent group interview and the actor talked about the idea behind Triplets, how his personal life has affected the likelihood of a sequel to True Lies, and he also had some choice words for the most recent entry in the Terminator franchise.
