Looks like we have Arnold to blame for that Twins sequel

As far as movie premises are concerned,

“I would love to do another ‘Twins,'” Schwarzenegger said when asked if there were any past characters he’d like to revisit. “As a matter of fact, 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 can see a poster,” the actor continued. “A billboard with us three. ‘They found another one!’ ‘Triplets!’ ‘Only their mother can tell them apart!’ I would do that in two seconds, because that’s real entertainment. You come out with that movie for Christmas, like December 5th or something like that, and you’re home free.”

Who knew the public was dumb enough that an idea like “a tall guy and a short guy are twins!” could entertain them for three-plus hours? (Get it? It’s silly!) Arnold Schwarzenegger, that’s who. It figures that he went into politics. Whenever people point out that we elected him governor, I can only chuckle uncomfortably and say “You should’ve seen the other guys!” while I point to Gary Coleman and a porn star.
