Casting Call Goes Out For The Farrelly Bros' 'The Three Stooges'

14 December 2010 5:29 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Once upon a time Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benicio del Toro were all cast to play the three lead roles in "The Three Stooges" movie. Now that all of them are off the project, the Bobby and Peter Farrelly are still going full speed ahead with production. Why? Because they decided to release an open casting call for three (I guess) lucky people to play the slapstick trio.There's not really much known about the script other than "The Three Stooges" won't be a biopic in the least. All it's going to be is the three running around in modern day America, which will be interesting good or bad to say the least. Auditions are scheduled to take place in January at some point with filming set to begin in Atlanta during the Spring of 2011.MOEThe unquestioned leader of the Three Stooges, Moe is a numbskull who barks orders »

Three Stooges Now at Fourth Studio

3 December 2010 10:09 AM, PST | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Bobby and Peter Farrelly's The Three Stooges movie has moved on to yet another studio, 20th Century Fox. It was most recently at MGM, otherwise known as The Bankrupt Studio. Previously, the project was at Warner Brothers and prior to that, Columbia. Many actors have accepted the roles at different times, like Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benicio del Toro, but at the moment, Carrey and Penn are out and del Toro is iffy. The Farrellys say they're open to any actor, famous or a newcomer, as long as they embody Larry, Moe or Curly. It is reported that Richard Jenkins (Eat, Pray, Love) is in, playing a nun.

One thing you can count on. Peter Farrelly says there will be "nonstop slapping." »

Farrelly Brothers’ ‘Three Stooges’ Movie To Finally Shoot? Why Soitanly!

3 December 2010 9:17 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Peter and Bobby Farrelly have been trying to make a “Three Stooges” movie since 1996, and, over the past 15 years, their passion project has received repeated smacks to the head with a frying pan.

A few years ago, it seemed like everything was coming together poifectly, with a dream cast that included Benicio Del Toro as Moe, Sean Penn as Larry and Jim Carrey as Curly. Carrey started packing on the pounds, but then Penn abandoned the project for personal reasons.

“You knucklehead!” (bonk) With Penn gone, Carrey left too. “What’s the big idea?!” (smack) Then Penn supposedly rejoined the film. “Oh, a wise guy, eh?” Finally MGM’s financial woes put the whole thing in limbo. “Nyaaaaaahhhhhhh!”

Now Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox has taken over “The Three Stooges” from ailing MGM, and has put it on the fast-track for a March 14, 2011, start date. Oh boy!

Farrellys Step Up Hunt For The Three Stooges

3 December 2010 8:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The Farrelly Brothers are stepping up their hunt for actors to play The Three Stooges in their new movie after failing to find replacements for Jim Carrey and Sean Penn.

Carrey and Penn both bowed out of the project, and the filmmaking duo is running out of time to find new stars to play 1930s comedy icons Moe Howard, Curly Howard and Larry Fine before filming begins in March.

It is unclear if Benicio del Toro, who was attached to play Moe, remains in the cast.

Peter Farrelly admits they are now "opening the roles up to the world" as they attempt to find the perfect actors for the parts.

He says, "The script is ready to go, and we are opening up these roles to the world right now. We'll make it with the best possible people.

"Our feeling is that no star is too big to audition and no matter who it is, we're going to have to see him in the role. This is not The Flintstones. You've got to be Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard, and that could be a major movie star or an unknown."

And the director has promised fans will be pleased with the script, adding, "There will be non-stop slapping, more in the tone of Dumb and Dumber than anything else we've done. Our goal is 85 minutes of laughs in a film that will be very respectful of who the Stooges were. It's by far the riskiest project we've ever done, without question, but it is also the one closest to our hearts." »

Farrelly Brothers' The Three Stooges Back on Track

3 December 2010 7:38 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

After Jim Carrey recently declared Peter and Bobby Farrelly's The Three Stooges movie "dead," the movie is finally back on track. The Farrellys originally got the green light for The Three Stooges at MGM in 2008, right before the studio fell into severe financial troubles. Two years later, MGM's bankruptcy and restructuring has finally been approved, and The Three Stooges has a production start date.

Fox to Develop ‘The Three Stooges’ Next Year

3 December 2010 1:35 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Three Stooges” will be on the big screen after all. With the approval of MGM’s bankruptcy plan, 20th Century Fox has set to take over “The Three Stooges” project and with a March 14 start date for production. Bobby and Peter Farrelly will direct the comedy, which they have also written. Actors Jim Carrey and Sean Penn have confirmed they have dropped out of this project. There is no update on whether actor Benicio Del Toro will play Moe. According to Deadline, the comedy “follows them to adulthood and is very much in the spirit of the original shorts, in which the blue collar bumblers got the best of the wealthy society matrons that tried to exploit them.” “There will be non-stop slapping, more in the tone of ‘Dumb and Dumber’ than anything else we’ve done,” said Peter Farrelly to Deadline. “Our goal is 85 minutes of laughs in »

Three Stooges movie comes back from the dead

3 December 2010 12:02 AM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

The Three Stooges movie may have looked dead just last month, but co-director Peter Farrelly has revealed that the “script is ready to go” for the comedy adap. Deadline report that the project has now moved to 20th Century Fox, after it floundered at MGM, and the Farrelly Brothers are still signed to direct. The project even has a start date, with shooting set to commence on 14 March. However, casting is still yet to be finalised, with former team mates Jim Carrey and Sean Penn both no longer involved. Benicio Del Toro also seems...

Three Stooges Movie Back On

2 December 2010 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It was on, it was off, it was on, it was off, and now it's on again. After more than ten years and at least four studios, Fox have stepped in to wrestle The Three Stooges from their most recent home at MGM, and if all goes to plan (which it never has before), the still-attached Farrelly Brothers will finally get to shoot it next year.The script remains the one that the Farrellys wrote with Mike Cerrone, but everything else, particularly the casting, seems to be starting from scratch. Readers who've been following the lengthy saga will recall that, at one point, Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey were poised to become the eye-poking trio Larry, Moe and Curly. Penn dropped out for personal reasons, followed shortly afterwards by Carrey. Then Paul Giamatti was attached to replace Penn as Larry, and then there was a bit of »

Three Stooges Movie Heads to Fox and Plans to Shoot in March

2 December 2010 2:49 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

That's right, folks. Despite the fact that both Jim Carrey and Sean Penn have officially dropped out of the Farrelly Brothers long-gestating adaptation of The Three Stooges, it looks like the film is still on the track to production. Deadline reports the project that was once situated at MGM has now move to 20th Century Fox with Bobby and Peter Farrelly still attached to direct from their own script which they wrote with Mike Cerrone. Of course, the big issue plaguing the project is a complete lack of a cast. It's not even clear whether or not Benicio Del Toro is still attached to play Moe. No matter where this project goes it seems doomed. Apparently the story kicks off when the trio are dumped out as newborns at the door of an orphanage where Richard Jenkins might play the head nun who gets terrorized by the stooges wacky antics. »

The Three Stooges Makes the Move to 20th Century Fox; Filming Set to Begin in March

2 December 2010 2:46 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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.

Fox Picks Up ‘Three Stooges’ From MGM’s Bankruptcy

2 December 2010 1:52 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

After being passed from Columbia to Warners to MGM and now to Fox, The Three Stooges looked more like the ball in a rugby highlight than a passion project. It also caused a lot of head scratching when Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benecio Del Toro were all involved. According to Deadline El Paso, that head scratching can continue (even though a new cast will need to be found) because the judge-approved MGM bankruptcy plan has caused the project to land in Fox’s lap with the Farrelly Brothers still on board to direct. On the one hand, it’s nice to see iconic relics of the Vaudeville generation getting a modern treatment. On the other, casting avatars for the spirit of Larry, Curly, and Moe will be almost as impossible as casting John Belushi for that promised biopic. Actually, it will be harder. Celebrating a life is one thing, but »

The Farrelly Brothers’ ‘The Three Stooges’ Moves to Fox, Begins Production in March 2011

2 December 2010 1:38 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Looks like the movie revamp of The Three Stooges isn't as dead as former cast member Jim Carrey thought [1]. After a decade of flitting from one studio to another, the film was lodged at MGM. With that company's bankruptcy clearing up, a path has led the project to Fox, which will put it into production on March 14, 2011. Peter and Bobby Farrelly will direct from the script they penned with Mike Cerrone. The big question is: who will star? There are some big shoes to fill. In addition to the original Stooges, who indelibly defined the characters, there was the all-star cast famously assembled for this film two years ago: Sean Penn as Larry, Benicio Del Toro as Moe, and Jim Carrey as Curly. Sean Penn left when he had family issues to sort out, with Paul Giamatti eventually stepping into [2] that role, but the delay in production caused the entire »

'Three Stooges' Movie Back On -- All They Need Are Stooges

2 December 2010 11:02 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

Less than a month ago, Jim Carrey declared that 'The Three Stooges' movie was dead -- at least to him. Now the project has come roaring back to life, according to Deadline, complete with directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly, an approved script, producers in place, and a start date set for March 14, 2011. Now all they need are stooges.

At one point Carrey, Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro appeared to be set to star. Since then, Carrey bowed out, based on health concerns he had about gaining 80 pounds for the role. (Actually, he was O.K. with gaining the first 40 pounds, but he was afraid those last 40 pounds would be a killer.) Sean Penn is out, because he's Sean Penn. And, post-'The Wolfman,' nobody knows about Benicio Del Toro. The Farrelly brothers say they're ready to cast major movie stars or »

Jim Carrey Declares Farrelly Brothers' The Three Stooges "Dead"

12 November 2010 7:49 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

It seemed like some kind of outrageous experiment when writer/directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly first revealed that the cast for their The Three Stooges movie would include Sean Penn as Larry, Benicio Del Toro as Moe, and Jim Carrey as Curly. Fans quickly voiced their displeasure or, at least, their astonishment at the unusual casting choices.

Once the dust settled, however, Penn left the project, citing "personal reasons," leaving the cast unfinished. Paul Giamatti was soon announced as Penn's replacement, until Penn returned to the movie earlier this year, having settled his personal affairs. Carrey's participation in the movie, however, was in doubt. In a recent interview with MTV, Carrey called the project "dead."

Jim Carrey Explains his ‘Three Stooges’ Departure

11 November 2010 8:17 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Farrelly Brothers thirteen year quest to bring The Three Stooges to the big screen has hit yet another roadblock. Although some momentum was gained when Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro, and Jim Carrey were lined up to play Larry, Moe, and Curly (respectively), the project ultimately continued to spin circles in development hell.

Penn was the first to jump ship and even though he later considered returning,  Carrey had by that point decided to abandon the film as well. Combined with MGM’s continuing legal woes, the prospect of a Three Stooges movie became increasingly uncertain.

Carrey recently sat down with MTV and speculated that audiences won’t be seeing the Farrelly’s modern-day interpretation of the iconic trio any time soon:

“I think it’s…
