Kingpin Sequel

After filmmakers Peter & Bobby Farrelly delivered the hit comedy Dumb & Dumber, they followed it up with Kingpin, one of the best bowling comedies ever made. Sure, maybe that’s becauue Kingpin is one of the few movies that’s actually about bowling (sorry, The Big Lebowski), but it still stands strong as a solid underdog sports movie starring Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid, and Bill Murray, each giving top notch comedic performances.

Now, 25 years later, Peter & Bobby Farrelly are said to somehow be working on a Kingpin sequel. Read More »

wishbone movie

What’s the story, Wishbone? A Wishbone movie, that’s what. Wishbone, the PBS kids series where a Jack Russell terrier would inhabit the roles of various literary figures, is now set to become a film from producer Peter Farrelly, the man who brought us both Green Book and Movie 43.

greatest beer run ever cast

The Greatest Beer Run EverPeter Farrelly‘s Green Book follow-up that reunites him with star Viggo Mortensen, just added another cast member to help out with the titular beer run. Dylan O’Brien is in negotiations to take the lead role in the film, with Mortensen set for a supporting part. O’Brien is known for Teen Wolf and also The Maze Runner franchise, so maybe they should retitle this The Greatest Maze Run Ever instead. Or not. They can do whatever they want, I don’t really care that much.

Peter Farrelly Quibi Series

Peter Farrelly, who directed both Shallow Hall and the inexplicable Best Picture winner Green Book, is the latest name to join Quibi, the short-form streaming service. Farrelly will develop The Now, which is said to be a comedy about suicide, which I think we’d all agree isn’t the funniest of topics. Like all Quibi shows, The Now will unfold in very short episodes. While there’s a heavy dose of skepticism surrounding the upcoming streaming service, it’s already attracted big names like Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, Steven Soderbergh and many more.
