Seriously?! Yes.

Director Martin Guigui has begun shooting a hybrid prequel/sequel to Martin Scorsese's boxing masterpiece Raging Bull. Curiously, Scorsese recently lamented, "I really don't know what Raging Bull II would be."

William Forsythe will play the older Jake LaMotta, and Mojean Aria will portray him in scenes that take place before the original film. (Robert De Niro won an Oscar for his 1980 turn as LaMotta.) Joe Mantegna, Tom Sizemore, Penelope Ann Miller, Natasha Henstridge, Alicia Witt, Ray Wise, Harry Hamlin, Bill Bellamy, and James Russo also will star.

No word on a release date.

Remember that dream you had the other night where Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito starred in a Twins sequel called Triplets where Eddie Murphy played their long-lost brother?

Well, guess what: That dream is coming true.

Universal and Montecito Picture Co. are reportedly in the early stages of developing the project, but Schwarzenegger, DeVito, and Murphy are already attached to the project, as is Twins director Ivan Reitman, who will produce through Montecito.

It's been nearly a quarter-century since the original film was released.
