Danny DeVito has revealed that the long-awaited Twins sequel is waiting on a perfect script.

The 68-year-old actor, who starred alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the hit 1988 comedy about two twins separated at birth, explained that there hasn't been much development on the film's follow-up.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, DeVito said: ''Arnold and I have had dinner about it. We met with Eddie Murphy. That was actually before I went away and came here [to London] to do The Sunshine Boys [in March 2012]. That's how long ago it was.

''Universal is very excited about doing it. It's just a matter of finding the script that we like and a story that works.''

When asked about his involvement in the movie beyond acting, DeVito said: ''I'm, like, sitting on the sidelines waiting for. I guess [director] Ivan [Reitman] might write it and produce it, so I don't have much to do with it.''
