2 March 2015 1:00 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Our favorite "Twins" are back together again! Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played fraternal twins in the 1988 comedy, reunited onstage in Germany at the Golden Camera awards. The two pals exchanged a warm handshake and hug, as the "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" star presented his on-screen brother with a Lifetime Achievement award.  Can you believe it's been 27 years since the release of the hilarious hit movie?! Back in 2012, there was talk about the dynamic duo reprising their roles in a flick called "Triplets," but the project was put on hold.

17 January 2015 12:06 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Frozen star Josh Gad came face-to-face with a version of his character Olaf... and went by unnoticed.

Gad posted a picture on Instagram of him posing for a photo with a person dressed up as the loveable snowman, and explained the situation.

The best part about this picture is that the guy in the costume had no clue whatsoever who I was or who Olaf is. Lol

14 movie sequels stuck in development hell

12 January 2015 3:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Twins sequel Triplets gets delayed, here are other big name sequels struggling to get going - from Top Gun 2 to Die Hard 6...

We started this website back in 2007, and since then, the names of some sequels seem to come up with reasonable regularity, albeit with no sign of the film itself. And in the time we've been going, yet more names have added themselves to the list of follow-ups that are seemingly stuck in development hell.

With the new Ghostbusters film set to escape and become a real thing in the next year or two, here's just a sample of the other projects struggling to get off the ground (with one or two edging closer to a greenlight than others...)

Josh Gad: 'Twins sequel is paused, but the script is done'

10 January 2015 11:00 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Josh Gad has revealed that he has completed a script for a sequel to Twins, but the project has been paused.

Speaking in a Reddit Ama to promote his latest film The Wedding Ringer, the actor revealed that he wrote a script with Ryan Dixon for Triplets, which would see the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito with Eddie Murphy as their long-lost brother.

When asked about the script's progress, Gad replied: "Uh, you know... the script is actually done. Everybody agrees that it's great. We wound up doing two drafts. Universal, I think, hit the pause button temporarily for whatever reason – internally, I think they are trying to figure out if they want to do a sequel or not.

"I would say if there's an outpouring of affection, that may move the needle, but I think it's on hold right now. But everybody read the script and loved it, »

Twins Sequel Has a Script, But May Not Happen

8 January 2015 2:22 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When Arnold Schwarzenegger returned to Hollywood, he had big plans to reprise his role in a "Twins" sequel, called "Triplets," which would have Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito find out that they have another brother, played by Eddie Murphy. Josh Gad has been on board to write the script, and now that he's promoting his "The Wedding Ringer" comedy, he has been answering questions about the status of "Triplets." "The script is actually done. Everybody agrees that it's great," he explained. "We wound up doing two drafts.

Josh Gad Says The Twins Sequel Is On Hold

7 January 2015 9:24 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in late March 2012, which now seems like the primordial ooze from the vantage point of the bright techno-futuristic landscape of 2015, word began to filter in that yes, someone really was working on a sequel to 1998 Arnold Schwarzenegger/Danny DeVito comedy Twins. Most of the reaction veered between worries about its necessity and questions as to whether it was an early April Fool’s gag, but now it appears its wobbly status has spread to the executives who commissioned the follow-up, as nothing has been heard about the movie since.And Josh Gad? How does he fit in, we hear you ask (yes, you did, we were listening really carefully). Turns out he co-wrote the script with Ryan Dixon for Triplets, which would continue the story from the original, which saw the Schwarz and the Dan-Man as unlikely brothers, possibly adding in none other than Eddie Murphy as their long-lost sibling. »

Twins Sequel Triplets Has ‘Great’ Script Yet It’s Still On Hold At Universal

7 January 2015 2:56 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over two years ago, multi-hyphenate genius Josh Gad signed on to script the sequel to the 1988 comedy Twins. Bearing the obvious follow-up title, Triplets, the project entered development at a slow, steady pace until it sort of ground to a halt.

The few scant details available in terms of story indicate that the movie will once more follow the mismatched twins played by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. Except, this time around their hijinks will involve their third brother, played by Eddie Murphy. It’s a concept that remains in line with the original, except this reinvented portion of the franchise has been penned by Gad and his writing partner Ryan Dixon. Now, we’ve an update on the movie’s status that suggests Universal aren’t gung-ho about moving forward.

During the press rounds for The Wedding Ringer, Gad took part in a Reddit Ama (via /Film) and was »

Josh Gad says the script for Twins sequel Triplets is finished, but the project has been Frozen

7 January 2015 2:12 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2012, it was revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito plan to reteam for a sequel to the 1988 hit comedy Twins, which would see Julius and Vincent joined by a third brother – hence the title Triplets – who will be potentially be portrayed by Eddie Murphy.

Frozen star Josh Gad was subsequently brought in to pen the screenplay with Ryan Dixon, and now Gad has provided an update on to The Arnold Fans, stating that the script is finished, but the project is on hold for the time being.

“You know… the script is actually done. Everybody agrees that it’s great. We wound up doing two drafts.

'Twins' Sequel 'Triplets' Gets Delayed

7 January 2015 1:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November 2012, Universal Pictures hired actor/screenwriter Josh Gad and his partner Ryan Dixon to pen the screenplay for the long-awaited Twins sequel entitled Triplets. We haven't heard anything about the project since then, but the comedy will bring back Twins stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, with Eddie Murphy joining the cast as the brothers' long-lost triplet. Josh Gad held a Reddit Ama session yesterday for his new comedy The Wedding Ringer, in theaters next weekend, where he revealed that the Triplets script is done, but Universal apparently is contemplating whether or not to move forward with the follow-up.

New Details On "Twins" Sequel "Triplets"

7 January 2015 12:54 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Actor, writer and comedian Josh Gad recently participated in a Reddit Ama session where fans asked him whatever questions they wanted. One project he had been tied to in the past was that of working on the script for "Triplets," a sequel to the 1988 hit comedy "Twins".

The film would see Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito re-teaming as the world's unlikeliest of twin brothers. Having drifted apart over the years, they are brought back together when they discover they have a new brother (potentially Eddie Murphy). The idea for the project has been around for a while, and Gad was asked where it currently stands. He says:

The script is actually done. Everybody agrees that it's great. We wound up doing two drafts. Universal, I think, hit the pause button temporarily for whatever reason – internally I think they are trying to figure out if they want to do a sequel or not. »

7 January 2015 12:46 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The first film premiered in 1998 and followed one man.s search for his long-lost fraternal twin brother, who ends up being a significantly shorter man involved »

7 January 2015 12:11 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though actor Josh Gad has become best known for his role as Olaf in Disney's hit animated flick Frozen, he's also an occasional writer. The latest project with Gad's writing talents was a developing sequel to the 1988 comedy Twins starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. The sequel would be called Triplets and would introduce Eddie Murphy as an even more inexplicably long-lost brother. However, since Gad was announced to write the script over two years ago, there hasn't been any new progress. But Gad just partook in a Reddit Ama to promote The Wedding Ringer, and he updated the status. Read on! Gad was asked for an update, where the characters are in life and if he would have a role (via SlashFilm): 1) Uh, you know… the script is actually done. Everybody agrees that it’s great. We wound up doing 2 drafts. Universal, I think, hit the pause button »
