Farrelly Brothers To Direct 'The Three Stooges'

Variety reports that after 5 years of trying to make a Three Stooges film it will finally happen, MGM has engaged Peter and Bobby Farrelly to renew their quest to channel the comic mayhem of the Three Stooges into a contemporary comedy.

The MGM news marks a homecoming for both the Stooges as well as the Farrellys, who spent five years trying to make the Stooges movie at Warner Bros.

The studio has staked out a Nov. 20, 2009 release date on the film. The Farrellys will direct the film and they will produce with Bradley Thomas and Charlie Wessler.
