Farrellys Fight for Three Stooges

Pie to the face cinema remains a pipe dream for the Farrellys.

The Three Stooges was supposed to be the
Farrelly
Brothers
‘ next movie after
The Heartbreak Kid
.
With brand new actors, they planned to write and direct four slapstick vignettes
in the vein of the old Stooges shorts. Sounds like a much better idea
than Stuck on You,
but the studio would rather have them direct another raucous comedy.

"It’s one of those things, it’s just been tricky," said
Peter Farrelly. "The studios all feel like women won’t go see it. I don’t agree.
Dumb and Dumber
wasn’t a chick flick but eventually women got in there."

Studios are also arguing foreign sales as an issue. "Also,
they don’t think it’s going to be big overseas because no one knows of it but
again, no one knew about Dumb and Dumber. It’s a hard one but we are
going to do it eventually."
