Although it premiered to very mixed reviews and seemingly disappointing box office back in 2012, it appears there’s life in The Three Stooges yet. An independent production team is reuniting Larry (Sean Hayes), Curly (Will Sasso) and Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos) for more comedy madness in a sequel.While Dumb And Dumber duo Peter and Bobby Farrelly were the co-writers and directors last time, realising a long-held dream to bring the characters to a new audience, Variety’s story on the sequel makes no mention of either. Instead, Cameron Fay has been hired to write the script, which will apparently have more of an action comedy slant this time, with producers C3 Entertainment looking to add a big star into the mix.“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, »
Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso – stars of the Farrelly Brothers’ 2012 comedy The Three Stooges – are set to reprise the roles of Larry, Moe and Curly for an upcoming action comedy from independent producers C3 Entertainment, Grand Peaks Entertainment and The Exchange.
“With Sean, Chris and Will back as our Stooges and Cameron Fay [Brother in Laws] writing, this next film will be a truly unique blend of fast paced action with the hilarious mayhem of the Three Stooges,” said Earl Benjamin, CEO of C3, which owns the Three Stooges brand.
The Farrelly’s Three Stooges received mixed reviews when it was released in 2012, and also struggled at the box office, pulling in just under $55 million from a budget of $30 million.

If you didn't get enough of all the "nyuk-nyuk-nyuking" and slapstick comedy in the 2012 remake of The Three Stooges, get ready for even more zaniness. Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso are set to reprise their roles as Larry, Moe and Curly in a movie sequel, C3 Entertainment, one of its production companies, confirmed in a website post on Friday, following reports by Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. Sasso, 39, had recently reunited with his co-stars. In April, he posted an Instagram selfie showing himself with Hayes, 44, and Diamantopoulos, who turns 40 on Saturday. "Me and my favorite Stooges," Sasso said. "The Three Stooges are returning to »
The Three Stooges didn.t make too much of a splash when it was released back in 2012. Not only did it only gross $50.4 million from its $30 million budget, but it was met with lukewarm reviews, as well. However, C3 Entertainment, Grand Peaks Entertainment, and The Exchange clearly still see some kind of potential in the comedy because the studios have banded together to order a sequel, which will bring its three leading actors, Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso, back too. According to Deadline, Cameron Fay has been hired to write the follow-up, while it.s still not known if the Farrelly Brothers will return for joint director duties. However, as Bobby and Peter Farrelly wrote the original alongside Mike Cerrone before they then went on to direct, it.s highly unlikely that they will decide to step into the breach again, having not been given the responsibility of »
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 »

2012’s The Three Stooges is not a bad movie. It’s not a good one, but it’s nowhere near the wretched mess the trailers made it out to be. It’s a kids’ movie, but not one that’s painful to sit through if you’re an adult. The movie was a lot of goofy slapstick, and the film worked on its own merits. So while others may be groaning at the prospect of a sequel, I don’t mind that another Three Stooges movie is moving forwards. C3, Grand Peak, and The Exchange have announced that they’re creating a new Three Stooges, and that Sean Hayes (Larry), Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe) and Will Sasso (Curly), will reprise their roles and be joined by a major action star, who is Tba. The press release makes no mention of the Farrelly Brothers, who were the major force driving The Three Stooges, »

Earning a meagre $54 million at the box office on a $30 million budget, the Farrelly Brothers reboot of "The Three Stooges" wasn't well received: audiences were indifferent. But that doesn't matter. Why? Because The Three Stooges are a brand, and so another movie is in the works. Perhaps to little surprise, 20th Century Fox is not involved. Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso will reprise their roles as Larry, Moe and Curly in this new indie production. A action star will join the cast, and of course all kinds of licensing and whatnot is being planned. Did no one in a position of importance realize that there's not enough of an audience to justify this project? No director or screenwriter has been revealed yet.

It's easy to praise beloved or empathetic characters, but who will stand up for the major turds? Even still, it's particularly hard to stand out as a douchebag on a show like HBO's Silicon Valley, which essentially explores an entire culture of them. But Chris Diamantopoulos somehow managed to make his venture capitalist character Russ Hanneman horribly unique in the the show's second season episode "Bad Money." What a glorious thing to have Hanneman unknowingly scratch his orange McLaren with the rivets of his jeans while trying to win over Pied Piper's Richard (Thomas Middleditch). That's down to the writing, sure; but where Diamantopoulos particularly shined in the episode was not only in the manic delivery of his pitch to Richard -- insisting that he's never really had beef -- but also in showing how fragile Hanneman's suped-up persona is. When he convinces Richard to come with him, he jumps »

Between when we last saw Gavin Belson pitching to buy out Pied Piper from Richard in a Mexican restaurant at the end of the previous episode of Silicon Valley and where we pick up in “Bad Money,” the weak-willed founder of Pied Piper brought Belson’s deal back to the office, struck by a bit of defeatism. Completely abandoned by investors due to the Hooli lawsuit, Richard now sees a buyout as the only way to save face and get some fiscal compensation for his colleagues and himself. None of his colleagues warm to the idea for getting back into bed with Hooli; Gilfoyle invites Richard to “chortle” his balls when he’s offered the deal. Their refusal of the Hooli deal is meant as anti-authoritarian grand-standing, but its not the selling out that really bothers them, as they all make clear that they want their cuts from the buyout in full. »

Silicon Valley is raising the stakes by bringing in the one big archetype it has yet to tackle: the washed-out tech CEO. Gavin Belson is a conniving, devious, maniacal douchebag, but he is successful. This means that if he were do something seemingly innocuous, like, say, compare the plight of billionaires in America to that of Jews in Nazi Germany, all he would have to do to fix the problem is build a statue on the Hooli campus in order to “hardwire sensitivity into our corporate mind-space.”
Russ Hanneman (Chris Diamantopoulos), on the other hand, is a conniving, devious, maniacal douchebag who is a Silicon Valley laughing stock. So when Hanneman whips onto the scene in his specially-made McLaren in order to hijack Pied Piper from Belson, he is »
