Good news, film fans. Actor Danny DeVito could soon be headed back to the big screen alongside former "Twins" co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger for a sequel to their '80s hit. Devito, who's currently in London for his final performances in the Neil Simon play "The Sunshine Boys," revealed the details on TODAY -- after a round of footsies.
Yes, before the highly-anticipated film talk, the actor wanted to take care of some important barefoot business. Fans who follow DeVito on Twitter are already familiar with his project, #trollfoot, wherein the star strips off a shoe and sock and photographs his right foot (the trollish one, as far as he's concerned) in the middle of whatever action he finds himself in. On Thursday morning, the action was TODAY-related.
As DeVito prepared for the snapshot, Natalie Morales compared his habit to "traveling gnome" photos, a la "Amelie" or those Travelocity ads, but he was quick to correct her.
"It's not a gnome -- it's a foot!" he insisted. "C'mon! ... By the way, there are a lot of troll foot fans. Don't abuse the troll foot."
Savannah Guthrie then offered up her not-at-all trollish foot to co-star in the picture, and after some wrangling that left DeVito on the ground, struggling for the perfect shot, it was a done deal. Expect the result to appear on Twitter any moment now.
With that important bit of foot fun behind him, DeVito moved on to movie news, as in "Triplets" -- the proposed title for that "Twins" follow up.
"Yes, yes!" he said when asked if it was still a go. "The thing about a movie is, you know, you've got the two guys -- you've got Arnold and I. We have the desire to do it. What we need is the screenplay. ... We want to find a really great story."
And one more co-star. Previous reports have put Eddie Murphy in the role of the other brother.
