    Default The 3 Stooges-Are u f'ing kidding?

    MGM gets its 'Stooges'
    Penn, Carrey, Del Toro part of studio's plan
    By MICHAEL FLEMING

    MGM and the Farrelly brothers are closing in on their cast for "The Three Stooges."
    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 in the Columbia Pictures shorts.

    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. The Farrellys, who wrote the script, are producing with their Conundrum partner Bradley Thomas, and Charlie Wessler.

    C3 Entertainment principals Earl and Robert Benjamin will be executive producers.

    Project will get underway after Penn completes the Asger Leth-directed Universal/Imagine Entertainment drama "Cartel." He hasn't done a comedy since the 1989 laffer "We're No Angels."

    The Farrellys have long had their eyes on Del Toro to play Moe. Del Toro, who's coming off "Che," showed comic chops in the Guy Ritchie-directed "Snatch."

    The surprise is the emergence of Carrey to play Curly. Howard established the character as a seminal physical comedian, from the first time he appeared in the first Stooges short in 1934 until he suffered a stroke on the set in 1946.
    Dealing with it.

    Ok, it's official. Hollywood is fucking out of ideas.

    I'm sure it will have marginal success, which will mean it will spawn 2...maybe 3 sequels--with the cast changing somewhere in there. :
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    how many of you guys like watching the three stooges?

    They don't seem to be on TV nearly as much as they were when I was a kid. It seemed like they were on a lot...especially late at night and in the early morning.

    Hell yeah, watched them every afternoon after school. One channel on cable was playing them fairly regularly a year or so ago and then that seemed to die off. Damn shame too, as even my kids like it!

    I know..seems like just a few years ago they came on Spike or something quite a bit. The only ones i ever liked were with Curly. Shemp, eh, he was ok. Then they brought that Joe guy in, never watched those.

    Sean Penn as Larry? Then again Jim Caray as Curly? Maybe could see him as Moe, but geez, dont even go there at all.

    This isn't a surprise to me. This project has been in the pipeline for a LONG while. Ever since that Three Stooges TV-movie was on, this project has been floating around.

    But really? Jim Carrey to play Curley? I mean I love Jim Carrey. But even if he does gain 40 pounds, is that going to cut it?

    Sean Penn as Larry. I can see that.

    Benecio Del Toro as Moe?!?!? I don't think so. A Mexican (with an accent) as Moe Howard?????

    A risky move. There are two things that make this mildly intriguing:
    • The casting of Oscar-winning actors (Del Toro, Penn)
    • The Farrelly Brothers

    "Dumb and Dumber" and "Kingpins" are two of my favorites comedies of recent vintage.

    However, the Stooges are iconic and will always be:

    I can see Jim Carrey being cast, but Sean Penn and Benecio Del Toro? I just don't get it.
