Schwarzenegger has given one final and definite update on the much-rumored sequel to The Twins.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed that the sequel de Twins has been officially canceled and the fault lies with… Jason Reitman.
For some time there had been talk of a sequel to the comedy that would see Schwarzenegger paired with Danny DeVito and that at one point would have included the entry of Tracy Morgan in the cast. Here’s what Schwarzenegger said, who also revealed in the same interview that he was done with the Terminator: “Jason Reitman screwed it up! Jason Reitman literally stopped the project when his father died“.
The actor continued: “His dad really wanted to do it and so did Danny DeVito and I. We had found the funding. When his father died, Jason said, ‘I never liked the idea’ and he put it aside“.
In response, Schwarzenegger said he is currently “developing another film with Danny“, adding: “He’s so fun to work with and he’s so talented“.
In the cult classic The Twins, Schwarzenegger and DeVito played genetically engineered twin brothers separated at birth. The film also starred Bonnie Bartlett, Kelly Preston and Chloe Webb.
