Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson has joined the cast of The Three Stooges for directors Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly.

Jennifer Hudson will portray the nun Sister Rosemary in the comedy, joining the previously-cast nuns Jane Lynch as Mother Superior and Larry David as Mother Mengele. There is speculation that Sister Rosemary is the "nice" nun, who contrasts Mother Superior and Mother Mengele.

Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly will direct The Three Stooges from a script they both co-wrote with Mike Cerrone.
