When you see Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage starring in a movie together, what genre comes to mind?

Drama and Fantasy?

They've been there and done that.


A wacky buddy comedy?

Now, we're talking!

During the "Aquaman Live" panel discussion at Celebrity Fan Fest in San Antonio, Texas this past weekend, a fan suggested a movie pitch for Momoa, who starred as Khal Drago in Game of Thrones.

The fan asked if the Aquaman star would reunite with his GoT co-star Peter Dinklage for a remake of the 1988 buddy flick, Twins. The original starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as, well, twins.

The original 1988 film, Twins, is available here.

Someone already reimagined the original 1988 movie poster.

Momoa, 39, was enthusiastic for the prospect and revealed he is a fan of the comedy about unlikely twins separated at birth.

"F****n' tell me where to sign! Absolutely. That'd be amazing. I love that movie."

You can watch his reaction at the 17:52 mark from the video of the interview, below.

Did you hear that, Hollywood?

Fans are already on-board.




Momoa raved about Dinklage, calling him "amazing." Now that fans got his blessing in public, the moderator said it was up to the "people on Twitter" to make that happen.

According to The Huffington Post, Momoa has not mentioned exploring that prospect. But with so many movies being revisited with a modern take, a Twins remake is not a long shot.

The 1988 movie, directed by Ivan Reitman, was a commercial success at the box office, opening at number one in the U.S. and earning $11 million during its first weekend of release.

Schwarzenegger and DeVito played fraternal twins–Vincent and Julius, respectively–who were created via a biological experiment in which the scientists involved told the mother (Bonnie Bartlett) that her babies died. Years later, Julius (Schwarzenegger) finds out information about his mother and brother and heads out to Los Angeles to reunite with his family.

In 2012, Universal announced a development of a sequel titled, Triplets, that would bring back Schwarzenegger and DeVito and would co-star Eddie Murphy as their long-lost brother.

It has yet to come to fruition, but the possibility of a sequel hasn't been scrapped, entirely.

DeVito told MovieWeb:

"I mean one of the ideas that was floated around was Eddie Murphy. So it would be Arnold and Eddie and I. He's a fun guy. We're talking about doing 'Triplets.'"
"If you remember Twins there was a cocktail, we mixed it together, and then you wound up with these two gene pools, Arnold and I. It was a strange little movie. We figured you could probably have another portion of that cocktail turn into somebody else."

The project is still on the back-burner, and bringing Triplets to the big screen is dependent on one important factor.

DeVito added:

"Everybody would be up for it. The main thing is you have to have a screenplay. We're looking. We're figuring it out."

Maybe there's a reason why Universal has been circumnavigating the sequel.

Were they waiting on an idea for Quadruplets?

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
