‘Three Stooges’ Movie Coming in 2009

"The Three Stooges are a timeless staple of comedy and when we heard what the Farrellys had in mind we knew it was time for Larry, Moe and Curly to return to the big screen," says MGM Chairman Mary Parent. It’s unclear if MGM and the Farrellys are looking at a star-studded comedy or if a group of newcomers will get a break.

Bobby and Peter Farrelly have written the Stooges film as an origin story for Larry, Moe and Curly, reintroducing viewers to the characters who first appeared in the MGM shorts in 1933. "We love The Stooges! They have been sending the world into hysterics for more than 80 years." Peter Farrelly says in a statement. "Movie goers today deserve their own Stooges and we look forward to introducing them to a new generation of knuckleheads."

The Farrellys were most recently in the press as producers and possibly directors of "Walter the Farting Dog," which may mark the first big screen break for the Jonas Brothers. They most recently directed the pilot for FOX’s short-lived "Unhitched," as well as the 2007 remake of "The Heartbreak Kid."

So should the Stooges make a come back as a remake or should they just leave it alone and let us keep watching those old Black and White reruns that we love?
