The Three Stooges is one roller coaster of news. The film has had its share of impressive names drop in and out, everyone from Sean Penn to Paul Giamatti, with the Farrelly Brothers set to direct. Even just last month Jim Carrey claimed the project was dead. According to Deadline however, the project is back with 20th Century Fox set to take it over from MGM. As of now The Farrelly Brothers are still set to direct the film which has a start date of March 14th.
The film’s original script, penned by Peter and Bobby Farrelly and Mike Cerrone, will remain the movie’s final screenplay despite the move to Fox. The movie remains uncast however, with Jim Carrey and Sean Penn officially out. It is still unsure whether the casting of Benicio Del Toro as Moe remains the same. Conundrum Entertainment, the company that owns the rights to the film, have now followed it from Columbia to MGM to Fox and things are finally looking like the project will happen.
