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.”
No word on yet just how much of the dark side is embraced in this film (I imagine CGI-heavy Drag Me To Hell-esque shlocky horror), but inspiration indeed comes from everywhere. 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.

As my review can attest to, I’m looking forward to not only watch John Wick again but also see how the film hits with general audiences when it arrives this weekend. The actioner stars Keanu Reeves as an ex-hitman who is crossed by the son of his old employer. When everything is taken from him, he decides to […]
