So Would It Be 'Throw Momma From The Train...Again'?

Danny DeVito in 'Throw Momma from the Train'I love "Throw Momma From the Train." So dark. So funny. I need very little encouragement to quote the whole thing for you. No seriously, don't tempt me. "He's trying to kill me! I asked for the salted nuts. He brought me the unsalted nuts. The unsalted nuts make me choke!" Shall I go on?

It's been 20 years since Danny DeVito's directing debut and so, when I got a chance to talk to the man himself a couple days ago, I couldn't resist asking if he's ever thought about a sequel. Guess what? He's game! DeVito said, "I actually haunt Billy [Crystal] all the time. I always call him and say we should do a sequel. I called Billy at 7AM one morning. I must have woken him up and I was like, 'I have this idea.' He was like, 'Are you done?' He went back to sleep."

Of course Anne Ramsey has sadly passed on, but I for one believe there are plenty of possibilities left for Owen and Larry. DeVito seems to agree and thinks perhaps the time is right. He told me, "I love that picture. We should be doing [a sequel]. This year we're doing a special DVD for it and then we're going to try to get someone to play it in theaters for the anniversary, and then we'll see."
