Though this project has gone dormant several times over the years, the rumors are storming their way back. The speculation of the Farrelly Brother’s Three Stooges movie is a buzz once again. The sights are now on Johnny Depp to play Moe and Sean Penn to play Larry. The film has been in development for quite some time with various A list stars rumored as possible casting choices. Jack Black, Jeff Daniels, & Jim Carrey have all been talked about choices, and the Farrelly’s even showed interest in Larry David to play Larry. To no surprise Mr. David turned them down. I’m not sure that the Farrelly Brothers have the right stuff anymore to pull this one off. It’s been such a long time since they’ve had a hit, and comedy has now gone the way of the Apatow. I would personally rather see a “well done”, Oscar worthy biopic than a new redo of the classic. We’ll stay on top of the progress and let you know what happens.
