The Farrelly brothers have been trying to get this movie made for more than a decade. Along the way, the brothers courtedGeorge Clooney, Russell Crowe, Jeff Daniels and Larry David
for parts.Johnny Depp
was also reportedly in the running for Moe. (He could just use his Willie Wonka wig.)
The film will be a comedy, not a biopic, inspired by the Stooges’ MGM shorts from the ‘30s. Production begins this fall for a 2010 release.
