Looking at the downward spiral of comedies from the once-promising Farrelly Brothers is a sad thing to behold. Coming off their passion project The Three Stooges, the filmmakers behind There’s Something About Mary plan to shoot a true sequel to their classic Dumb & Dumber soon, but they’ve got another comedy project in the works.
Variety reports that 20th Century Fox is looking to once again team with the filmmakers on a new script titled Dear Satan. The idea popped into screenwriter and babysitter Dan Ewen‘s mind on one of his child-watching stints, when the 7-year-old subject in question gave him a misspelled Christmas card. He says, “there was this cute little card, covered in candy canes and glitter. I fell in love with the idea of this note mistakenly being delivered to the Prince of Darkness and the fiery wackiness that would ensue.”

While I’ll need a few more details, at this point the Farrellys just need to do something out of left field and this could be it.
