Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator) and Danny DeVito (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) were both set to reprise their Twins roles in the announced sequel entitled Triplets, however, that all came to a sad end when director Ivan Reitman passed away last year in early 2022.
While talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Schwarzenegger was asked to provide an update on the sequel which is still considered to be in development to this day but hasn’t made any progress for over a year as of writing this article.
Schwarzenegger told THR that “Jason Reitman f—ed it up! 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.”
In terms of the sequel’s development itself, Schwarzenegger says that they “had the financing. When his father passed away, Jason says, “I never liked the idea” and put a hold on it.” Despite the sequel not officially being cancelled, it doesn’t look like the cast and crew are developing it anytime soon, however, it sounds like the confirmed cast for the title were all pretty keen on the idea.
The confirmed cast for Triplets so far, as per its official IMDB page, is Arnold Schwarzenegger as Julius Benedict, Danny DeVito as Vincent Benedict, with Eddie Murphy and Tracy Morgan still attached to star if development ever goes forward.
Netflix’s Arnold releases on June 7th, a documentary about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career and life from his early age to the present day, he also stars in FUBAR, an upcoming Netflix comedy series, where he will star alongside Monica Barbaro, among others.
