Filmmakers The Farrelly Brothers are planning to bring American comedy legends The Three Stooges back to life in a new movie.

The vaudeville troupe - specialising in slapstick comedy - graced theatres, TV and cinema screens from the early to mid 20th century, attracting millions of fans.

Now Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly, famous for their gross-out movies Dumb and Dumber, and There's Something about Mary, are bringing them back to life - a project that has taken five years to be approved by studio bosses at MGM.

A cast has yet to be announced - but the movie could reach the big screen as early as November 2009, reports Daily Variety.
