The Farrelly Brothers' The Three Stooges Remake Gets Greenlit
Peter and Bobby Farrelly have finally found a home for their long-proposed remake of a comedy classic. According to Variety, MGM has given the Farrelly Brothers the green light for their long-proposed remake of The Three Stooges.
The brothers had tried to set up the remake at Warner Brothers for the last five years with little progress made. It seems the film will be fast-tracked as well, with MGM setting a November 20, 2009 release date for the film.
The Farrelly's will direct the film and, while no casting has been announced, Bobby Farrelly had previously stated they were "thinking of someone like a Benecio del Toro, or a Russell Crowe" for the role of Moe.
