Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger had so much fun reuniting at the Oscars that they want to work together again! The actors previously starred in the comedy Twins together in 1988 and joked about both portraying Batman villains over the years during their Oscars appearance. Now, they have confirmed they are in discussions about working on a new film together.

DeVito explained, “He’s like my buddy. We have a good time together. You know, we’re trying to do another movie together. We’re in the middle of — there’s a script being written. We want to get back on the big screen together.” However, he did confirm that it would not be a sequel to Twins but a new concept.

He continued that they see each other “once in a while, you know, not at the gym, because I don’t go. But we’re looking forward to getting back up there on the screen. So, fingers crossed, next year we’ll be in production with something. We always have a good time together. He’s a sweet guy.”

The 96th Oscars held on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at the Dolby® Theatre at Ovation Hollywood and televised live on ABC and in more than 200 territories worldwide

DeVito added that while they don’t work out together, Schwarzenegger has helped him with keeping his weight down over the years. He said that they like to discuss food and Schwarzenegger gives him some tips on keeping the weight off. In addition, it seems that DeVito has spent some time in the Schwarzenegger household because he knows all the animals.

He added, “Schnelly the pig. And, you know, the horse bites me when I try to feed him. … We smoke a stogie in the yard. You know, come on, and we have a good time. I love him.” We can’t wait to get more details on this project as it comes to fruition!
