As a fan of The Three Stooges (and movies in general) I was left totally speechless when I read this article on

I'm too shocked to even comment. Here's the article….


MGM and the Farrelly brothers are closing in on their cast for The Three Stooges, reports Variety.

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 a comedy built around the antics of the three characters that Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Howard played in the Columbia
Pictures shorts.

Production will begin in early fall for a release sometime in 2010. The Farrellys, who wrote the script, are producing with their Conundrum partner Bradley Thomas, and Charlie Wessler.


  1. You've got to believe that Pride and Predator is going to be better than this. This has to be an early April Fools thing. Has to be. How dare the Farrellys sully their legacy with such swill.

  2. I love the word swill. Possibly the greatest word ever spoken.
