Farrelly Brothers Discuss "The Three Stooges"

Posted: November 4th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Farrelly Brothers Discuss "The Three Stooges"Submit Comment
MGM has revived the long-gestating Peter and Bobby Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin) "Three Stooges" project. Project marks an MGM homecoming for the Stooges as well as the Farrellys, who spent five years trying to make the Stooges movie at Warner Bros. The Farrellys will polish the script they wrote with Michael Cerrone and will direct the picture. The studio has staked out a November 20, 2009, release date for the film.

Peter Farrelly said the Stooges feature was revived because of the enthusiasm of MGM Worldwide Motion Picture Group chairman Mary Parent, who has acquired the rights to scripts owned by WB and made a deal with Stooges rights holders at C3. With Parent, the Farrellys have worked out a blueprint for a $45 million budget comedy that will be either PG or PG-13 and feature the slap-happy low-tech comedy prevalent in the Stooges shorts.

"It's not a biopic. It takes place in present day, and they look, dress and sound exactly like the Stooges," Peter Farrelly told Variety. "When the economy started turning, we felt like the world could use a Stooges slapfest. Bobby and I haven't done a real physical comedy in a while, and it's the most exciting thing we could think of now, to have people go to the movie, see some great slapstick fun family humor."

Farrelly said that an "American Idol"-like search will be conducted to find Curly, the most physically gifted member of the trio. Auditions will be held in three or four cities and a finalist will be chosen in Los Angeles. The film will be structured similarly to the shorts, as a feature storyline plays out over three installments that run between 25 and 30 minutes each. A second contest will be held to find several comedy shorts that will precede the film. The goal is to create the feeling that audiences got when they watched the original Stooges shorts as part of a diversified film program.

This could work, but it would also be easy to screw up. Be careful, MGM.

I still laugh at physical comedy- there's just so few doing it these days while they found so many gifted actors like Paul Rudd and the such who can evoke laughter by the way they can utter a single word. Physical comedy WILL NEVER DIE. A punch in the nuts is a punch in the nuts.
