Look for Atlanta in “Three Stooges” trailer

382824_2647257813224_1009038716_2851804_228596663_nThe trailer for “The Three Stooges,” which was filmed this summer in Atlanta, is out.

The movie, starring Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes and Will Sasso as the stooges, along with Jennifer Hudson and Jane Lynch as nuns and members of the Jersey Shore crew in a cameo playing themselves, is the Farrelly brothers’ modern take on the rollicking classic.

Here’s a link to the trailer, on YouTube. As you can tell the movie will feature lots of slapstick and plenty of Atlanta landmarks. (And some nice product placement for Atlanta-based Whynatte.)

The project filmed all around town and beyond, from Cartersville to Stone Mountain, as well as the Atlanta Civic Center and a couple of private homes. The Buckhead mansion owned by developer Lee Najjar served as the site for a big party scene. Looks like that’s where the still photo, above, was taken.

The flick is scheduled for a spring release.

Uh, Jennifer, The Three Stooges was not a television show. The Three Stooges were genuine movie stars whose movie shorts spent a lot of time being replayed on television.

Should be a academy award winning movie. Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk. Hard to duplicate the chemistry between Moe, Larry, and Curly. Hope it lives up to the originals.

Yes, Sam, but the televised stooges shorts were what made them popular. I was too young to have ever seen them on a movie screen and I’m 50. Let’s show some maturity and tolerance…

Once again, Shemp is left out. Joe Besser, I can understand, but where is Shemp?

Sam

Shemp and Joe Besser aren’t there because the original Stooges are the best Stooges. Obviously, Drexel Girl, you don’t have an appreciation of the finer points of Stooge aesthetics.

Really kind of surprised, but I chuckled at the trailer. Seems to have the real thing in terms of Stooges wah. Never would have believed it, but who knows, it might be good. Probably isn’t anyone who could have pulled off playing Curly but Wil Sasso — incredibly talented and funny guy who hasn’t gotten the opportunities he deserves since his days at Mad TV.

Well, Um, I’m assuming that you refer to the fact that Shemp was the original Stooge in their vaudeville act, but Curly was the original movie Stooge. Shemp didn’t appear in their movie act until Curly suffered a stroke much later on. Do your research.

Enjoyed the trailer. I own all 190 Columbia Short Features and several other Films by the Stooges. I think to try and duplicate The Stooges would be a risky project…….and it MUST have Shemp, Joe Besser and Curly Joe included in the project, after all, the “Feature” Films ” from later years are part of the Stooges Legacy.

Sam, this might be the first argument over the stooges in history! ha. So who were the cast members in “Soup to nuts”, the first stooges movie? Tag

Sam, my recollection is Shemp was the original Stooge and wanted out. Curley replaced him. When Curley suffered his stroke, Shemp came back.

OMG – are you folks really fighting over a Stooges movie (formerly TV show, formerly movies)? And, to claim it is “risky” to try this? Risky for those actors’ careers? Absolutely!

It’s such a burden having to carry the weight of Stooge scholarship this way, but for everybody’s edification, the first Stooge movie was actually “Woman Haters,” 1934, a semi-musical short which featured the Stooges as a separate act, for the first time not associated with Ted Healy.They did make earlier films, but as only bit players supporting Healy. By the way, Curly Howard, not Shemp was the third Stooge in that movie and remained the third Stooge until he suffered a stroke in 1946 and Shemp took over.

They made me laugh as a child and now I’m 45 and still laughing. Life is short my friends. Be nice to one another. The Stooges are great Americana.

This just looks awful. I like The Stooges ( including Shemp-the only one who had a decent career away from the group) , but there is no explanation for why anyone would make this movie or who would think it would have much appeal

Sam and Um stop it! you are arguing on the Stooges c’mon we can do better than that. When I was a child I loved them they bought laughter even when Shemp was in the trio even though he always seemed depressed and not really funny to me, but that is strictly my opinion.

You’re right, cwilli. Although we may have disagreements as devotees of the great Masters, I believe all of us can unite in mutual respect under the banner, Stooge.

If anyone could do The Stooges justice, it would be a Farrelly. (sp?) However; Sophia Vegara and Kate Upton were in the ATL this summer, and I MISSED it? Arrrrrgh…

Someone told me that former Atlanta “celebrity” Virginia Gunn has a speaking part in this “film”. True?

Funny characters and true to the originals, but not the lesbian Jane Lynch as a nun and another nun in a revealing one piece bathing suit, and certainly not idiotic Snooki! Just goes to show you, the producers in Hollywood no longer have the imagination, or character, that made the oldies great!

Sam

Why are all the movies filmed here such pieces of s–t? Atlanta is becoming the capitol of bad rom-coms, teen films, and lowbrow comedies. Watching any of these films will have you leaving the theatre feeling dumber. Even The Walking Dead has turned to s–t.

yeah

Gene what are you talking about TWD is a great show and a great graphic novel which if you did the research (guess what?) takes place in georgia! You have also never seen an amazing artistic thriller called “the signal” I highly suggest it before you condemn everything produced here in atlanta. Though most of hollywood is crap these days there really are some gems hidden in there.

Had my attention until you mentioned Jane Lynch. If this person was not gay she would have no career. Terrible actress and plays the “gay” trump card to often.
This is an insult to the original Stooges because they were the original funny guys! Jane Lynch is not funny. Matter of fact she is discusting!

I know the Walking Dead is based in Georgia in the comic. This fact likely helped the show get picked up to begin with, because of the tax cuts our state offers.

Walking Dead Season 1 was good. Season 2 is drawn out and boring. The creator of the show left because AMC wouldn’t pay him and it shows. Some of the writing is just embarrassing and has caused me to have no empathy for any of the characters and instead hope they meet their demise soon. Between dedicating six episodes to them looking for a girl, that no one cares about, in the woods and many of the absurdly stupid actions the group have taken in between, I think I’m done with the show and will be moving on. They are adding nonsensical scenes, like the “Fish the Zombie out of the Well so we can drink the water” one, that weren’t even in the comic. I imagine this has a lot to do with AMC cutting the budget of the show and wanting more episodes, but I was hoping it would make it at least another season before jumping the shark.
