Remember when we thought for a minute that Johnny Knoxville might play Moe in the Peter and Bobby Farrelly version of The Three Stooges? That didn’t happen, but now things have come full circle, in a way, as the new trailer for the film opens by emulating the warning that opened every episode of Knoxville’s breakout show Jackass. The thrust of this trailer is slapstick: face slaps, eye pokes, hammers to the forehead, shellfish down the pants and a lot more. The question is: does it work? Read More »

Although that first domestic trailer for Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s The Three Stooges left me pretty cold, with just a month to go until the film’s release it seemed worth giving the new international trailer a fair shot. Unfortunately, though the new video does more efficient job of laying out the plot, it fares no better at bringing the funny. Your mileage may vary, though, so check out the trailer after the jump.

I’d like you all to do something for me. When you watch this trailer for Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s The Three Stooges, I’d like you to picture Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro in the roles that are now occupied by Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, and Chris Diamantopoulos. Because the fact that Penn, Carrey and Del Toro had even thought about doing this movie is totally insane, seeing what eventually came out of the project. I’m sure what they would have made might not have borne much of a likeness to this, because it couldn’t have been the disaster that this appears to be. But it’s fun to think about — a lot more fun than you’ll get out of this trailer, I bet. Read More »

Only hours after the news that Bobby and Peter Farrelly are moving forward with a sequel to Dumb and Dumber, we’ve got the first real look at the Farrellys’ new Stooges. Here are Will Sasso, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Sean Hayes as Curly, Moe and Larry in The Three Stooges. I invite you to compare and contrast Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe in this pic, and old shots of Jim Carrey as Lloyd Christmas from Dumb and Dumber. There’s a certain family resemblance, I think. Check out a full image of the trio below. Read More »

Now that Peter and Bobby Farrelly are almost done with their long dreamed-of film reincarnation of The Three Stooges, they’re turning their thoughts to the future. The brothers have another TV show in the works, but for their next feature film it sounds like they might revive their 1994 hit Dumb and Dumber. Screenwriters have been hired to write a sequel that will hopefully reunite Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in their original roles. Read More »

Fox’s upcoming The Three Stooges, a long-time dream project of comedy directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly, is an object of curiosity for me. The movie has bounced through a couple studios, and once almost rolled with a high-profile cast that included Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benecio del Toro. Things fell apart, and early this year the project landed at Fox. Then it moved quickly, assembling a cast that includes Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe Howard, Sean Hayes as Larry Fine, Will Sasso as Curly Howard, and Jane Lynch, Larry David (playing a nun!), Sofía Vergara, Jennifer Hudson, Stephen Collins, and Carly Craig.

We’ve seen a few set photos and little else. Now there is a poster image of sorts, but it shies away from really revealing the new Stooges. (Even the old banner above shows more.) Check it out below. Read More »

I’m very curious to see what Peter and Bobby Farrelly have done with The Three Stooges, which is a film they’ve wanted to make for years, and eventually shot early this year in Atlanta with Sean Hayes as Larry, Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe, and Will Sasso as Curly. Have they come up with something that will have any of the iconic comic appeal of the original Stooges? That seems impossible, given the fact that they’re making this film in a totally different comedy landscape. Turns out that we’ll find out what they’ve done with it in April of next year.

Here’s a lovers and spouses collection of casting news, leading off with a nice change of pace report of an actor being cast as the ‘love interest’ for a major actress, rather than the other way around. After the break you’ll find:

  • Matt Dillon will woo Anette Bening in Imogene,
  • The Killing actress Mireille Enos joins Gangster Squad,
  • Stephanie Szostak cozies up to Ryan Reynolds in RIPD,
  • and some of the Jersey Shore knuckleheads appear with famous fictional whackos The Three Stooges.
