Kingpin sequel in the works from the Farrelly Brothers


“Who you calling a psycho?” Woody Harrelson yells in response absolutely nothing during the whirlwind bowling comedy Kingpin, and therein a cult classic was born. 25 years on, the Farrelly Brothers are set to return to their trademark madness for one more roll of the ball. 

Collider has reported that the pair are currently serving as executive producers on the project that is yet to enter production. Little else is known about the project in these early stages, with no further casting or directorial announcements. 

The original 1996 cult hit starred Woody Harrelson as a bowler who tragically loses his hand, a huge issue for any would-be kingpin. Randy Quaid joined the festivities as an Amish bowling hotshot, and Billy Murray rounded off the main cast as the dastardly Ernie McCracken. 

The official logline for the original reads as: “A star bowler whose career was prematurely “cut off” hopes to ride a new prodigy to success and riches.”

Despite their comic origins in recent years, the Farrelly Brothers have branched out. Peter Farrelly has even taken home a pair of Oscars for his work on 2018’s Green Book

We will keep you up to date with further updates as and when they’re made, but for now, you can check out the trailer for the original below.
