Is It Too Late Put In A Petition To Recall The 'Twins' Sequel?

When I heard that Eddie Murphy will be joining Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in the Twins sequel, titled Triplets, as the third brother, I thought they're basically recycling the concept of the first movie. It seems like my worst fear has been confirmed.

Comingsoon interviewed Schwarzenegger last year about the sequel and this is what he said:

"...we've been talking about doing one and it's called 'Triplets.' I'd find somebody like Eddie Murphy or someone that people would say, 'How does that happen, medically speaking?' and, 'Physically, there's no way!' Then, somehow, we would explain it. That would be hilarious with what we know about someone like him."

I read that a couple of times to make certain he said what he said.

Um, I hope he knows that Twins already answered all those questions. His character and Danny DeVito's were the results of genetic experimentation. So for the movie to be true to its title, Murphy's character will have to be as well.

And if he's thinking that adding Murphy will make the movie funny, think again. He couldn't make his own movies funny -- he'd lost his mojo. I assume he hadn't seen Murphy's recent hits like Meet Dave, Imagine That, or A Thousand Words? That's right, they weren't hits nor were they well-reviewed.

I not saying Schwarzenegger et al shouldn't go through with the movie, they definitely should. But if the main selling points are the third sibling and the potential laughs brought on by Murphy, it's not going to end well.

Triplets is currently looking for writers to flesh it out so the story may evolved into something else, or it may never get past the development stage.
