MGM has announced its intentions to make a Three Stooges movie. And what's amazing is it's funny already. It's funny and they haven't even rolled an inch of film. Not one frame and it's hilarious.
Let me lay it out for you before milk shoots from my nose.
Benecio Del Toro is going to play Moe. That's right, Moe.
Sean Penn is going to play Larry. Uh-huh. You got that right.
And Jim Carrey is going to play Curly. He's going to put on an additional 40 lbs, because that's all that really separates him from Curly.
The Farrelly Brothers are to direct. And according to them, they've long had their eye on Del Toro to play Moe. Seriously folks, I can't make these things up.
I'm all for casting against type, but this seems a bit extreme to me. Then again, I'm not sure who I would cast in this because, I'm not sure why it needs to be made. The Three Stooges is pretty timeless comedy to me. But who am I to say? They've remade worse things. And by worse, I mean better.
