Penn, Carrey, Del Toro are "The Three Stooges"

Penn, Carrey, Del Toro are "The Three Stooges"Submit Comment
MGM and the Farrelly brothers are getting closer to getting a cast for the upcoming "The Three Stooges" film. The studio has set Sean Penn to play Larry, and negotiations are underway with Jim Carrey to play Curly, with the actor already making plans to gain 40 pounds to approximate the physical dimensions of Jerome "Curly" Howard.

The studio is zeroing in on Benicio Del Toro to play Moe.

The film is not a biopic, but rather a comedy built around the antics of the three characters that Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Howard played.

Originally constructed as four separate shorts, the feature screenplay has since been streamlined into a single narrative. Included in the story line is an opening that shows the Stooges as kids in an orphanage, a device that will require some "Benjamin Button"-style visual trickery to place the adult actors' heads on child actors' bodies.

The quest by the Peter and Bobby Farrelly to harness the project spans more than a decade and three studios. They first tried at Columbia, again at Warner Bros, and finally at MGM, where Worldwide Motion Picture Group chairman Mary Parent championed the cause and bought the WB-owned scripts and made a deal with Stooges rights holders C3.

Production will begin in early fall for a release sometime in 2010.

'Penn, Carrey, Del Toro are "The Three Stooges"'... that sounds more like a joke to me.

This will either be amazing or awful. There can be no middle ground. Fingers crossed for the former!
