While trolling Variety, I happened to come across a reference to a Farrelly Brothers remake of The Three Stooges, starring Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro.
This idea is a little hard for me to process on two levels:
1. The Stooges seem like one of those untouchable franchises that shouldn’t be messed with.
2. That’s one hell of an odd casting.
A Google search brought up an LA Times blog confirming that such a project is indeed in the works, though the funding appears shaky.
If you were casting the remake who would you cast as Larry, Moe and Curley?
