Danny DeVito says Arnold Schwarzenegger should have done Twins 2 instead of becoming Governor

But the actor has revealed that the two are now working on something special together.

The world is a less colorful place considering we could have had a Twins sequel.

The original was a smash hit and saw Danny DeVito team up with Arnold Schwarzenegger where they played twins Julius and Vincent Benedict who were split up at birth.

Julius eventually discovers he has a twin brother and sets course for Los Angeles to find his brother.

They couldn't be more different as a result of their upbringing (as well as the science experiment that saw them conceived) and they form an unlikely friendship.

The film was released in 1988 and brought in more than $200 million at the box office on a budget of just $18 million.

Naturally, everyone was calling for a sequel so that DeVito and Schwarzenegger could get up to their zany antics once again.

But sadly, it was never meant to be.

In an interview with GQ, Danny lamented not being able to get together with Arnie to make movie magic.

"We missed Twins 2, because he became governor—which, he should have done Twins 2 instead of becoming governor," DeVito said.

"Now we have a little thing going, a little project that we've been chatting about."

When asked whether this new project was related to a Twins sequel, he said: "No, it's just two friends, two guys, because we have a good time together.

"We complement each other in a lot of ways. I am way stronger than he is."

Funnily enough, we were promised a sequel back in 2021 and it was going to involve Tracy Morgan.

DeVito and Schwarzenegger were going to reprise their roles of Vincent and Julius and Morgan was going to be their long-lost triplet brother.

Eddie Murphy was originally attached to the sequel. The director of the 1988 film, Ivan Reitman, was also on board with the idea.

However, he sadly died last year, which ended up halting the project.

Schwarzenegger told The Hollywood Reporter that Reitman's son, Jason, blocked any progression of the sequel.

"Jason Reitman f**ked it up!" he said.

"Jason Reitman literally stopped the project when his father died."

"His father wanted to do it really badly. I wanted to do it really badly. Danny DeVito wanted to do it really badly.

"We had the financing. When his father passed away, Jason says, 'I never liked the idea' and put a hold on it."
