All Schwarzenegger would say with regards the plot of the new film is “funny thing that happens in the mixing of the sperm”.

Schwarzenegger’s immediate priority will be filming Terminator 6 this summer. It may well be that Triplets, as the Twins sequel is called, will take its place in the queue after that. The original film, incidentally, is 30 years old at the end of the year. Yikes.
