After DeVito revealed in a recent interview that he and Crystal were at one point developing a follow-up to their 1987 crime-comedy, a representative for the latter tells EW that the longtime friends and collaborators still intend to re-team for a continuation of the story titled Throw Papa From the Train.
"It's true," Crystal's representative says. "They're still working on it."

No other details about the project were immediately available, and EW has reached out to representatives for DeVito and the original film's distributor, Orion Pictures, for more information.
In a new GQ interview, the Matilda and recent Haunted Mansion star expressed his desire to revive his work with both Crystal and his Twins costar Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"Billy [Crystal] and I want to work together again. We were looking at possibly doing Throw Papa From the Train," he told the outlet. "And then Arnold [Schwarzenegger] and I want to work together. We missed Twins 2, because he became governor — which, he should have done Twins 2 instead of becoming governor. Now we have a little thing going, a little project that we've been chatting about."
DeVito also directed Throw Momma From the Train, the story of two men who plot to murder one's ex-wife and the other's mother. The film grossed $58 million at the box office and even scored supporting actress Anne Ramsey an Oscar nomination.
