Modern Family star Sofía Vergara is in talks to join the cast of The Three Stooges for directors Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly.

Sofía Vergara will play a conniving woman who tricks The Three Stooges into thinking she's the wife of a dying man. She tells them they will be handsomely rewarded if they kill the man while he sleeps. The Three Stooges will be told over three vignettes, the second of which will be Sofía Vergara's story.

Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly will direct The Three Stooges from their own screenplay. The directors have already locked in two of The Three Stooges, with Will Sasso playing Curly and Sean Hayes portraying Larry. Moe has yet to be cast.

It still isn't clear when The Three Stooges will go into production.
