Looks like Eddie Murphy 's A Thousand Words is lost in translation. The actor's latest film, which was a critical and commercial bomb in the US, won't be coming to theaters in the UK. Local distributors canceled the film's release after it's poor showing stateside.

The film, which also stars Kerry Washington , sat on a shelf for close to four years before it got a chance at the box office here at home, but it's $15 million performance over three weeks hasn't exactly made up for lost time. The film is still scheduled to open in France and Germany in May.

Meanwhile, Murphy is moving onwards and, um, upwards with a new project: the Hollywood Reporter just announced he'll star opposite Arnold Schwarznegger and Danny DeVito in the sequel to the 1988 hit Twins , called…you guessed it…Triplets . Murphy will, of course, play the third brother.

Who says what's old can't be new again?
