Farrelly Brothers's Three Stooges Movie Gets Greenlit

Farrelly Brothers's Three Stooges Movie Gets Greenlit

It was mostly a rumor a year ago, but now it's for real: The Farrelly Brothers (those ol' kooks behind There's Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, and others) have decided that modern-day moviegoers "deserve their own Stooges" and have gotten MGM to back their Untitled Three Stooges Project. The MGM press release continues:

The Farrelly Brothers have been working on a modernization of the Stooges, "slapstick with heart" concept since the mid-90s. But it was their decision to focus on an origin story for Larry, Moe and Curly and thus introduce the three to a new generation that pushed the picture onto the fast track.

"We love The Stooges! They have been sending the world into hysterics for more than 80 years." [Peter] Farrelly continued, "Movie goers today deserve their own Stooges and we look forward to introducing them to a new generation of knuckleheads."

What do you think about remaking The Three Stooges for the big screen? A while back I asked you guys if you thought the Farrelly Brothers should fold up their director's chairs and refrain from making any more films, and many of you said they should. Is this a good project for them?

You can see what the winning trio was for the Three Stooges recast challenge from last year here. Any other casting ideas?

Oh no, I don't think they should touch this. The Three Stooges are a legend. They better not mess this up.
