The Farrelly Bros’ forever in the making Three Stooges movie seems to be gaining buzz again and with surprise “rumored” casting.
Now I don’t know what to think of the rumor of Johnny Depp as Moe, but Sean Penn as Larry could be outstanding if done right. Now I hate remakes and also something as Iconic as the Stooges being re-done, but if done right, this could be really great.
I like the fact that they are getting more “serious” actors to play these roles, and I think if they are to do the movie, they shouldn’t have guys like Jack Black, or it will just fail due to the history behind the Stooges. But if they get guys like Penn (who is one of my fav actors, don’t know why all the hate around these boards) who has done funny roles in the past, and takes his work serious, this could be great.
Also I think they should do this in black and white, and little skits, instead of a full length movie. I would love to see Sean Pean as Larry in a black and white Stooges movie, instead of say Will Ferrell (who is funny as hell) as Larry in a crappy movie.
