Arnold Schwarzenegger confirms a Twins sequel
It has been 24 years since we last saw them on-screen together in 1988's Twins.
And fans will be pleased to know Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito will soon be reprising their roles as a lovable Odd Couple. Schwarzenegger confirmed the happy news last Thursday when he spoke at Comic-Con in San Diego. He said he will be teaming up with the original director Ivan Reitman, and that they are currently looking for a writer for the project.
Rumours surfaced earlier this year that Schwarzenegger and DeVito were set to star in a sequel to the comedy. However, it has been claimed that the duo could find another unlikely brother in the movie -- in the form of Eddie Murphy. Schwarzenegger, 64, played Julius Benedict in the first movie outing, who was conceived by test tube and went on a search for his long-lost brother.And DeVito, 67, took on the role of his brother Vincent, who turned out to be much shorter and a crook after failing to get any of the good genes. The film is set to be titled Triplets.

Taylor Swift tops Forbes list of highest earning stars under 30
Taylor Swift has topped Forbes Magazine's list of the highest paid celebrities under the age of 30, earning a cool $57 million in the last year. The 22-year-old star's riches are largely due to the success of her albums and tours, with CDs Taylor Swift, Fearless and Speak Now going platinum at least four times. The award-winning singer's concerts grossed around $1 million per night for 65 dates last year and she also profits from endorsing goods like CoverGirl cosmetics, according to Forbes which measured the stars' estimated earnings between May 2011 and May 2012. Swift even beat out Justin Bieber who is the only male celebrity in the top five. The 18-year-old Canadian singer made $55 million from record sales, concerts, and endorsements. The rest of the top five are filled out by female singers with Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry taking third, fourth and fifth places. Rihanna, 24, earned her estimated $53 million from a 85-date tour, hit album Talk That Talk and promoting Vita Coco coconut water and Nivea lotion. Ranking fourth, 26-year-old Lady Gaga earned $52 million last year, a lower place than previously, due to her 'lack of touring' before the May 2011 deadline, according to the magazine. However, she still rakes in cash from her latest album Born This Way as well as her old hits.
