Jim Carrey Now Out Of The Farrelly Brothers’ ‘Dumb and Dumber To’

Jim Carrey

It is really sad to see a promising comedy fall apart, especially if it’s a comedy that everyone has been waiting for. Let’s pretend for a moment like the Dumb and Dumber prequel Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd never happened. Or if you are of the group that never watched it in the first place, then you need not worry. But if you did, pretend it never happened. Everyone has been waiting for a true follow-up to Dumb and Dumber, and for a moment it looked like it was going to happen.

Warner Brothers was setting up a sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, which would have the original stars of the film Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels come back and reprise their respective roles. Now it appears that Carry is unhappy with WB’s unenthusiastic interest for the sequel, and as a result, he has pulled himself out of the project.

Farrelly Bros Confirm ‘Dumb & Dumber 2’; Production To Begin This Fall

Dumb and Dumber

At a press junket for their latest movie The Three Stooges, directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly took some time to discuss the long-rumored sequel to their 1994 smash hit debut Dumb & Dumber, which also helped launch the career of star Jim Carrey. Coming Soon reports that Peter Farrelly said that the movie is definitely in the works with the stars returning and that the brothers are looking to begin production later this year on Dumb & Dumber 2 (title subject to change).”

We’re getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September,” Farrelly said. “It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done and we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”

First Trailer For The Farrelly Brothers’ Long-Awaited ‘Three Stooges’ Has Arrived

The Three Stooges

The first trailer for the Farrelly Brothers‘ long-awaited and oft-troubled new take on The Three Stooges has arrived, and it is pretty painful to watch.

There was always a dim ray of hope that maybe the movie would end up surprising us with word that it would be in three segments and that they would be able to use the Three Stooges theme music, as well as rumored stars like Jim Carrey, Sean Penn, and Benicio Del Toro. But as you’ll see, with stars Will Sasso, Sean Hayes, and Chris Diamantopoulos (not to mention Snooki from MTV’s Jersey Shore, for some inexplicable reason) this is already the vandalization of a beloved classic we feared it would be.

You can see the trailer for The Three Stooges by clicking on over to the other side now.

While this labor of love for the Farrelly Brothers has taken quite a bit of time and pain to get to the big screen, we finally have our first look at the cast of the upcoming adaptation of The Three Stooges.

The film stars Will Sasso, Sean Hayes, and Chris Diamantopoulos as Curly, Larry and Moe, respectively, and I must say, this looks absolutely awful.

Yet Another Attempt At ‘The Three Stooges’ Movie, This Time At Fox

We’ve heard more than our fair share of updates from the planned Farrelly Brothers movie based on The Three Stooges. The movie has been on the way for what seems like an eternity, and Jim Carrey, Sean Penn, and Benicio Del Toro were all attached to star as the bumbling trio at one point.

Sadly, the movie was another of the many victims of MGM’s highly publicized financial troubles, and constant delays saw the project fall to pieces.

Now it would appear that The Three Stooges has new life with word of a brand new home. Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox has picked up the pieces and will now move forward with the movie, hoping to begin filming by March. This also puts them back on the trail for the next set of actors they’ll choose for the lead roles.

Round & Round We Go: Sean Penn Rejoins ‘Three Stooges’

Stooges

Peter and Bobby Farrelly have been trying to bring their movie version of The Three Stooges to us for a long time now, and it looked as though things were going well when we discovered that they had Benicio Del Toro, Sean Penn, and Jim Carrey set to play Moe, Larry, and Curly. The project took a turn for the worst when it was announced that Penn was going to drop all of his film projects to concentrate on his family problems, which unfortunately ended with the splitting up of he and his wife Robin Wright Penn. Now comes word via The Boston Herald that Penn is back and ready to reacquire the role of Larry now that some form of resolution has been reached in his personal life.

This is obviously great news for the Farrelly brothers, who feared that his initial departure could spell the end for the struggling project, though there were rumors of the fantastic Paul Giamatti taking over for Penn.

Sean Penn Decides It’s Time For A Break; Drops ‘The Three Stooges’ & ‘Cartel’

Stooges

In one of the more random announcements of recent memory: Sean Penn has decided to drop out of not one, but two of his bigger projects. Penn has informed producers that he will no longer be appearing as Larry in The Three Stooges, and that he also will not be appearing in Cartel — a movie about a man protecting his son from a gang of drug cartels who killed his wife. It appears that the actor has decided to step away from acting for a while after his Oscar-winning performance in Milk to spend more time with his family. Penn has two movies currently in post-production that are on the way, and also another project in pre-production called This Must be the Place, but no word on his leaving or staying with that film.

Universal seems to be fine with this and is going to recast his role in Cartel, which is still in the process of being written. MGM, on the other hand, has a little bit more of a problem to figure out. The Three Stooges movie has been up and down for years now, and it was only last November that it was announced that the Farrelly Brothers had moved the property from WB to to MGM and were finally moving forward with the movie. After that came the blockbuster announcement that the directing-duo had found their Stooges in Jim Carrey as Curly, Benicio del Toro as Moe, and Sean Penn as Larry. There’s the possibility that the Farrelly’s have other actors lined up for the roles, but at the moment, there is no word on how Penn’s departure will affect the forward-progress.

‘The Three Stooges’ Are: Jim Carrey, Benicio Del Toro, Sean Penn

Stooges

We’ve been hearing about a potential The Three Stooges movie for some years now, with nothing ever really playing out. It looks like that’s about to change as casting has begun to move forward on the Peter and Bobby Farrelly project.

While all three of the above names aren’t etched in stone as of yet, they are the target three. Sean Penn is a definite for the role of Larry (and probably the most fitting, look-wise), and Jim Carrey is currently in negotiations for the role of Curly. Word is that Carrey is already making plans to gain 40 pounds for the chubby character, so that makes his participation seem a lot more likely. Benicio Del Toro isn’t in negotiations yet, but he’s been singled out as the choice for Moe for a while now, so that’s a wait-and-see.

The Farrelly brothers also wrote the script, which will be distributed by MGM. The plan is to begin filming this fall, with a release set for some time in 2010.

‘Three Stooges’ Back On At MGM With Farrelly Brothers

StoogesAfter years of trying to get a Three Stooges movie made at Warner Bros., Peter and Bobby Farrelly have now moved over to MGM where the project is now moving forward again.

If you recall a while back, people like Russell Crowe were spoken of to star in the movie but it never came to be.

Most people (including myself) think it to be an incredibly bad idea to even bother with a Three Stooges movie. I don’t see how it could possibly be anywhere near what they were and it just seems so pointless. I guess if it was a movie about the Stooges and was funny, but dramatic as well — maybe in the vein of Man on the Moon or Hollywoodland — then I could say it might be worth doing. But this doesn’t seem to be going that route. This seems to be a Farrelly Brother’s Three Stooges comedy, which is slightly horrifying to think about, whether you love the Farrellys or loathe them.
