The Lorax actor said that many recent remakes of classic films and TV shows have "stunk", and that he hopes his 1970s and '80s sitcom Taxi never gets a new version.
"Taxi: The Movie? That's not gonna happen," he told BBC Breakfast.
"All those [remakes]? They stunk. I remember Taxi, [those episodes] were exemplary. They got it right once years ago, now they just do it and do it and do it.
"[William Shakespeare], he's rolling over in his grave saying, 'Please leave me be!'"
However, DeVito added that he would be interested in making another film with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"I would do another movie with Arnold, no problem. Now that he's got all this politics out of his system. Because that was a fiasco.
"I was pitching him an idea for another Twins. We made so much money on Twins, it was obscene."
Comparing politics to making another film together, he added: "I said to him, 'Twins 2 - Governor of California'. No contest!"
Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed that Twins 2 was being made while speaking at Comic-Con two weeks ago.
Danny DeVito can currently be heard as the main voice in a new adaptation of The Lorax, which opens on July 27 in the UK.
