Nyuk Nyuk, The Three Stooges will be getting a sequel
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?
