Last month, I talked about how the third Darrow & Darrow movie was going into production in the Vancouver and British Columbia area. On the website for What’s Filming, not only were more cast members attached to the project (including Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Tom Cavanagh, and Wendie Malick), the title of the film was also revealed! The “In Production” page on What’s Filming’s website has the movie listed as “Darrow & Darrow 3: Body of the Crime”. Remember, Hallmark may change this title before the film’s release, but this is what the Darrow & Darrow sequel is being called for now.
I have mentioned before that I like the Darrow & Darrow series and I also reviewed Darrow & Darrow: In the Key of Murder last month on 18 Cinema Lane. In that review, I shared my disappointment about the Darrow & Darrow sequel being a murder mystery. While Hallmark has not released a synopsis yet for the third Darrow & Darrow film, the title that was revealed on What’s Filming’s website indicates that the story could, once again, revolve around a murder mystery. Personally, I hope this isn’t the case because the majority of the movie series on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries center around a murder mystery. Because of this, each of the series seem to lack major differences from each other, making it difficult for newer series, such as the Fixer Upper Mystery series, to stand out from the rest. What made me enjoy the first Darrow & Darrow film was the mystery being a theft, which is very different from most of the series on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. It seemed like this particular series was going against the grain and making creative choices that most series on that network have not chosen before. With a unique identity and so many stories to tell, I hope the Darrow & Darrow series can stay true to itself and not get lost in the shuffle of Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ growing list of movie series.
What do you think of the title for the next Darrow & Darrow film? Do you like it or dislike it? Tell me how you feel in the comment section!
Have fun at the movies!
