The Three Stooges

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s holding out for a hero ’til the morning light. He’s gotta be sure, it’s gotta be soon, and he’s gotta be larger than life. We lead tonight with images from this evening’s episode of Community, which took a jaunt into Pulp Fiction territory and played around with some Tarantino aesthetic. I haven’t watched it yet, as I’m contractually obligated to watch it with my lady and I won’t see her until tomorrow night, but I’m told that it was a new high mark for the show.

What is Movie News After Dark? This is a question that I am almost never asked, but I will answer it for you anyway. Movie News After Dark is FSR’s late-night secretion, a column dedicated to all of the news stories that slip past our daytime editorial staff and make it into my curiously chubby RSS ‘flagged’ box. It will (but is not guaranteed to) include relevant movie news, links to insightful commentary and other film-related shenanigans. I may also throw in a link to something TV-related here or there. It will also serve as my place of record for being both charming and sharp-witted, but most likely I will be neither of the two. I write this stuff late at night, what do you expect?

Like false reports of the last golden ticket being taken, a rumor went floating around through the world last week pinning Johnny Knoxville and Andy Samberg to the project as top contenders. Apparently they haven’t even auditioned. Peter Farrelly cleared up the air, telling EW that Three Stooges casting is still open to everyone – even those without any acting resumes. The project starts shooting in mid-April, so you’d better hustle, but if you’re dying to get two fingers shoved in your eyes, you’ve still got a chance at opening up that Wonka Bar and making your way into the factory.

The white water rafting trip through development that was The Three Stooges has landed The Farrelly Brothers (and all seven people waiting with goosebumps to see what will happen) here, in a world where they have no huge stars in their project. On the one hand, that’s a disaster. On the other, creating iconic characters can sometimes be easier with unknown actors. On that first hand, the casting director now has to deal with every moron that thinks he’s funny or does a “great Curly, I swear to God,” coming before them to prove their worth. With any luck, they’ll broadcast the worst and the most bizarre auditions American Idol style before the movie. Or maybe those terrible auditions are the movie. Either way, if you’d like to become the next Stooge, here’s what they are looking for.

After being passed from Columbia to Warners to MGM and now to Fox, The Three Stooges looked more like the ball in a rugby highlight than a passion project. It also caused a lot of head scratching when Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benecio Del Toro were all involved. According to Deadline El Paso, that head scratching can continue (even though a new cast will need to be found) because the judge-approved MGM bankruptcy plan has caused the project to land in Fox’s lap with the Farrelly Brothers still on board to direct. On the one hand, it’s nice to see iconic relics of the Vaudeville generation getting a modern treatment. On the other, casting avatars for the spirit of Larry, Curly, and Moe will be almost as impossible as casting John Belushi for that promised biopic. Actually, it will be harder. Celebrating a life is one thing, but taking over the roles for a brand new fictional feature is another. Hopefully the Peter and Bobby Farrelly are both scratching their own heads (respectively) wondering who on the planet they can possibly rope into the roles. Also to consider: what does this mean for their long-fabled Happy the Hedgehog movie that the theaters keep teasing us about?

My battle to avoid printing this story comes to an end with me losing. Johnny Depp and Sean Penn are rumored for The Three Stooges. Probably not. But maybe. But probably not.
