It's a sequel that has been mooted at various points over the years, but it looks like 'Twins 2' might never happen now.

At one point, however, a sequel to the 1988 comedy starring Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger as fraternal twins who were separated at birth was on the cards - but then Arnie went and ruined it all by going into politics.

Schwarzenegger was Governor of California from 2003 to 2011, and now DeVito has said in a new interview with GQ that that was what scuppered their potential reunion.

"We missed ‘Twins 2,’ because he became governor - which, he should have done ‘Twins 2’ instead of becoming governor," the 78-year-old said. "Now we have a little thing going, a little project that we’ve been chatting about."

However, this new project is not related to a 'Twins' sequel, he added. "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."

At one point, a sequel titled 'Triplets' had been in the works for years, with Eddie Murphy (and later Tracy Morgan) attached to star as their long-lost triplet - but plans for the film died when Ivan Reitman passed away last year.

In the same interview, however, DeVito claimed that he and Billy Crystal are planning to make a sequel to 'Throw Mama From the Train' called 'Throw Papa from the Train'.

Schwarzenegger's most recent acting job, meanwhile, has been in Netflix comedy series 'FUBAR'.
