The Farrelly brothers have been trying to get this movie made for more than a decade. Along the way, the brothers courtedGeorge Clooney
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.
