The project is currently known as "UNTITLED THREE STOOGES PROJECT".
Bobby and Peter Farrelly wrote the screenplay and will be directing the forthcoming film.

Great. Another classic property being remade by a gutless Hollywood.

We can debate until the cows don't come home the merits of traditional remakes. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't... sometimes they are passable, other times horrible. Every once in a while I see a remake that I prefer over the original.

BUT...

Remaking people?

Love them or hate them, there is only one 3 Stooges (Ok, maybe there are 5 or 6 if you count the changes over the year)... only one Laurel/Hardy, Abbot/Costello... and for more modern folks, 1 Richard Pryor, 1 George Carlin, and so forth.

People can be funny in new ways or in homage to old ways... but we don't in any way need people recreating old characters. There is no way to surpass that. If you like the Stooges, nothing else will compare. If you hated them, then what would be the point?

I can safely say that unless they make a biography-style pic depicting such famous historical entertainers, that I will have less than zero interest in such a remake.

I'm sure it'll do better than the "new Laurel & Hardy" did.

I remember at one time, the Farrelly's thought about doing the 3 Stooges movie with 3 women. :confused: There is a short update in this article that states it will be set during the present day.

The Farrelly Brothers Reviving the Three Stooges in 2009

I thought the actors in the TV movie/biopic about the Stooges back in 2000 did a good job:

Yeah, and that's what I was talking about... Do a good historical bio pic and it exposes new people to old comedy and then they want to go back and watch them again. But try to re-invent them and you accomplish very little.

FYI, for anyone interested... they have been recently releasing original Three Stooges shorts in chronological order finally. I think they are up to a 4th volume on DVD by now.

You can check the following link for TV listings for the Stooges.

No TV listings are showing up for the next 2 weeks at this time.
However,there are some listings showing up on Hulu at the link above. :)

Spike aired many episodes shortly after they went HD, last year. The old film looked fantastic.

I was thinking of maybe John Goodman as Curly, Jeff Bridges as Larry and Steve Buscemi as Moe. Oh wait, that would be Big Lebowski II......Well anyways, those would be my casting choices should the Farrelly Brothers press along with this project (which they shouldn't).

They can find three guys who are absolute dead ringers for the Stooges, and it won't work. They'll never get the timing down, and timing is everything in comedy. Not to mention those old sound effects would sound weird in a modern movie, and anything other than those sound effects will sound stupid. Red line this project, it's a waste of time and money.

That's not even funny, because I think it's pretty common knowledge that very few women even like the Three Stooges. My mom, my sister, sister-in-law, and every female friend I know can't stand them. My dad, brother, uncles, cousins, and all other guys I know think they're hilarious!

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

In some of the most bizarre casting news to come down the pike, Sean Penn has been set to star in the Farrelly Brothers' "Three Stooges," with Jim Carrey and Benicio del Toro close to committing........
