Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage need no introduction. You would know them through the acclaimed HBO series that earned them global recognition - Game of Thrones. Momoa appeared in the first season of the series whereas Dinklage stayed on till the last episode of the show.

Now, a lot of fans have wished to see both the badasses from GOT together since they didn't share a screen while they were on the show. It looks like their wish might just come true, reported Comicbook.

Do you remember the movie Twins? In case you don't, here's a refresher. The 1988 movie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as fraternal twins who were separated at birth. When Julius (Schwarzenegger) discovers he has a brother (DeVito) and mother, he goes out to find them. What happens next is a hilarious web of confusion as both the brother uses their particular set of skills to find their way to each other. Sounds hilarious? It is. And now, Momoa wants to remake the movie with Dinklage as his estranged brother.

The rumors about Twins getting a remake has been going around for quite some time now. In 2019, speaking at the Celebrity Fan Fest, Momoa was asked if he would like to star in a remake of Twins alongside Peter Dinklage. He said, "F*****’ tell me where to sign. Absolutely. That’d be amazing. I love that movie.” After praising Dinklage, he agreed with the panel's moderators that they should conduct a campaign on Twitter to gain support for the project.
People were understandably very excited about this prospect. One fan wrote on Twitter, "only if the story has it where Dinklage is the superior genetic twin and Momoa was the garbage." A second fan quipped, "Still waiting for Triplets but if that doesn't get made, seeing Dinklage in a comedy like that would be fun."

In the same panel, the Aquaman star revealed that he wanted to play Wolverine when the X-Men franchise gets rebooted after the disastrous performance of Dark Phoenix in the box office. In an interview with Cinemablend, when asked which Marvel character he'd most like to play, he said, "I’d love to play Wolverine. Hugh Jackman was phenomenal. I grew up just loving Wolverine.”

Their mother, Mary Ann (Bonnie Bartlett), is told they're dead. Now Vincent, an unscrupulous street hustler, ekes out a living in Los Angeles. Julius, raised by a scientist (Tony Jay), grows up humble, intelligent and strong, but very naive about the larger world. When Julius learns of his mother and brother, he heads to Los Angeles to find his family."
