Nyuk Nyuk, The Three Stooges will be getting a sequel

05.08.2015

The Three Stooges were a major part of my youth; watching Moe, Larry, Curly, and Shemp engage in choreographed slapstick always brought a smile to my face. The idea of other actors stepping into those roles felt like an impossibility, but I knew it was only a matter of time before I (and other Stooge fans) would have to deal with that very thing.

Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes, and Will Sasso stepped in to fill the roles of Moe, Larry, and Curly for THE THREE STOOGES from the Farrelly Brothers and the result was...not as bad as many had feared; it wasn't good mind you, but it wasn't bad either. The film wasn't as big of a hit as the Farrelly Brothers had hoped, but it seems as though the Stooges aren't quite as dead as we thought they were. C3 Entertainment, Grand Peak Entertainment, and The Exchange have announced that they will be bringing us a sequel to THE THREE STOOGES which will see Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes, and Will Sasso reprising their roles along with a "major action star", who is TBA. The film is being envisioned as an action-comedy rather than a straight comedy this time around.

C3 Entertainment's Earl Benjamin:

We're excited to be moving forward with The Exchange and Grand Peaks on the next Three Stooges movie. With Sean, Chris and Will back as our Stooges and Cameron writing, this next film will be a truly unique blend of fast paced action with the hilarious mayhem of The Three Stooges.

Brian O'Shea of The Exchange:

The Three Stooges is an incredibly powerful brand, I am looking forward to give to the independent distributors the opportunity to participate in this commercial phenomenon.

The Farrelly Brothers were absent from the press release but it does mention that Cameron Fay (BROTHER IN LAW) has been hired to write the script. I know many people don't hold much love for THE THREE STOOGES but I think there's still a way for them to pull this off successfully. Will they? Probably not. Sigh.

Which Stooge is your favourite?

The first movie wasn't fantastic but I think the main cast did a great job of capturing the characters. I saw an interview with them where they stayed in character for the whole interview. It was a joy to behold.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do... www.jobs-review.com

Major Action Star = The Rock ...

The Rock is perfect for this but I don't know that it's perfect for him. I was mixed on the first Stooges movie so I really don't care too much. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson may not care either but he did do 'The Tooth Fairy' so his standards are questionable.

So....

It takes 20 years to get a (sadly awful) sequel to Dumb and Dumber, one of the most beloved comedies of all time, and this pile of shit, which was ripped on by critics and bombed at the box office, gets a sequel just a few years later? Ok. Makes sense to me.

Nerp

How about we don't and say we did. It will get just as many positive reviews.

All I care about is that they cut most of the Kate Upton Nunkini scenes from the original!

They didn't go all the way.

I need that original b&w cinematography and they had a special way they recorded sound. You really need someone who understands how to stage that retro style of comedy. The sets were wrong. The camera moves were wrong. The background extras were wrong. If it were me, I'd put them in some kind of sci-fi scenario. Kids love that.

Didn't the first film bombed at the box office and was reviled by both critics and audiences?

This is good news. I really thought the first was a fun, lighthearted good time and the three actors did a fine job. The vignette style was unique too and will hopefully return. And if they're using an action star, I would almost bet it's Dwayne Johnson. He should play Shemp.

Remember when it was supposed to be Jim Carrey, Benecio Del Toro, and Sean Penn?? Now that would have been something.

Give it a chance

I didn't think the first movie was gold but it certainly could've been a hell of a lot worse. Will Sasso looked like he was livin' the dream. Stay away from real lowbrow crap like the pee fight this time though.
