Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito Reunite in ‘Twins’ Reunion Snapshot

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito Reunite in ‘Twins’ Reunion Snapshot

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito are still the ultimate “twin-spiration”, posing for a fun snapshot calling back to their 80s hit. On Friday, the Conan the Barbarian legend posted a photo on Instagram with his Twins co-star DeVito and DeVito’s daughter Lucy DeVito. They were on the set of their Broadway play I Need That.

“My brother! It was fantastic to see Danny on Broadway in I Need That,” Schwarzenegger captioned the photo. “He and Lucy and everybody involved kept the audience entertained, laughing and loving every minute – one of the best plays I’ve ever seen, a true spectacle with heart!! I can’t wait to work together again.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito became forever linked when they teamed up for the 1988 comedy film Twins. The movie tells the story of two genetically engineered fraternal twins who were separated at birth. It quickly became a hit, grossing $111 million at the domestic box office and ranking as the fifth highest-grossing film of that year.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito Have Been Attached to a ‘Twins’ Sequel For Years

A belated sequel to the movie, called Triplets, is currently in the works. However, the project faced a setback. The original movie’s director, Ivan Reitman, passed away at the age of 75 in February 2022. Reitman was set to return for the sequel, which would have revolved around the discovery of the brothers’ triplet status. At one point, Eddie Murphy was said to be joining the cast of the sequel. However, Tracy Morgan was recently reported to be taking on the role instead.

Regardless of the status of Triplets, it appears that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito have another project in the works. In May, the ex-governor of California revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that he and DeVito were cooking up something behind the scenes. Describing his two-time co-star (they also worked together with Ivan Reitman on Junior in 1994) as “so talented.”

Meanwhile, DeVito also teased about the secret project with Schwarzenegger. “[We] have a little thing going, a little project that we’ve been chatting about,” he recently told GQ. However, he stressed that the collaboration was grounded. “It’s just [about] two friends, two guys,” he explained.

I Need That, featuring Danny DeVito and his daughter Lucy, whom he shares with wife Rhea Pearlman, will conclude its run at New York City’s Todd Haimes Theatre today, per their website.
