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.

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 »

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.
