Great movie idea?

This story from ABC News is interesting. Two identical twins have sex with the same woman within a 24 hour period. She gets pregnant, has a baby, and then tries to obtain child support from . . . well, that's what makes it interesting. The normal procedure here is to do a DNA test, but indentical twins are clones, so the legal system is all atwitter.

So here's my movie idea: what about two identical twins who are also vicious killers? They commit every crime "together," but can never be prosecuted, because they can always claim their twin was the real murderer -- thus creating a "reasonable doubt" and escaping conviction. In an age where Jim Carrey can make a stupid horror movie about the number 23, surely I can get this greenlighted, no?

That idea'd be great until one of the twins was actually caught in the act. Then the whole thing blows up.

Besides, The Prestige already sort of took that concept in a different direction.

ooh, the Prestige took that concept in what direction? I must know. Prestige Prestige!

they'd have to watch their fingerprints. identical twins do not have identical fingerprints.

i plan on killing someone and blaming it on one of my brothers.
