One of these things is not like the other. Actually, none of these things are like any of the other…and that’s what made the premise of Ivan Reitman’s 1988 film Twins work. But how do you further capitalize on the hilarious assumption that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito are twin brothers? Add in Eddie Murphy as a long-lost sibling and call it Triplets. DeVito talked about the possibility of a sequel in an recent interview with Steve. Currently, there is no director attached, but Reitman will produce the project via his Montecito Picture Co. The sequel is in the process of recruiting writers as no substantial creative talks have occurred yet. Hit the jump for more on Triplets.

THR reported on the development of Triplets. The original film posited that Schwarzenegger and DeVito were twins born “in a secret lab somewhere in the Western hemisphere” where Schwarzenegger got all the good genes and DeVito got all the crap. While the original was hilarious, I must admit that I couldn’t help but crack up the first time I heard about the idea. Check out a synopsis and trailer for the original movie, Twins below:

The central “gimmick” of the comedy-adventure Twins is established early on. Unbeknownst to one another, king-sized Arnold Schwarzenegger and gnomeish Danny De Vito are twin brothers. Even better: Schwarzenegger is a mild-mannered, bookish type, while De Vito is a vitriolic troublemaker. The film takes satiric jabs at the notion of “perfect” genetics, and makes several pointed comments concerning the dangers of youthful pre-conditioning by insensitive parents. (via Fandango)
