Received this via Infobeat I was originally concerned, but I think that the Farrelly Brothers know these guys are legends and will probably make the movie the best it can be…
Farrelly bros. to make Three Stooges film
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Peter and Bobby Farrelly think there’s something about the Three Stooges. The sibling writer-directors behind “There’s Something About Mary” and “Dumb and Dumber,” said Friday they plan to make a movie based on the slapstick characters of Larry, Moe and Curly. The film won’t be a remake of any particular Stooges story, but will be an original idea cooked up by the brothers, Warner Bros. Studios said. Shaggy-haired Larry Fine, belligerent Moe Howard and his skinhead brother, Jerome “Curly” Howard, are the best known performers of the Three Stooges comedy act, which went from vaudeville stages to Hollywood in the 1930s.
For those who don’t know, the Stooges special that was broadcast on TV and focused on the Stooges offstage life was Executive Produced by Mel Gibson, a well known Stooges fan.
