Nyuking it up The Farrelly brothers are working frantically to finish the script for "The Three Stooges." Peter Farrelly reports that he and brother Bobby are holed up on the Cape until it's completed. "We've been working night and day," Farrelly told us during a beverage break at Scampo. The brothers are optimistic that at least some of the movie will be shot in their native Rhode Island, and it'll be in theaters this time next year. So who'll play the silly Stooges, you say? No one's signed on yet, but Peter said plenty of names are being bandied about. How about Benicio del Toro as Moe? "He's a huge Stooges fan," said Farrelly. Jeff Daniels is being considered for Larry and Andover's own Michael Chiklis could yuk it up as Curly. The Farrellys had been working on a movie called "Hall Pass," but that was shelved when they were given a deadline to deliver "The Three Stooges."
I am obsessed with the Three Stooges, and the Farrelly brothers' films are always funny, but I am not sure how this will turn out... Interesting to note that Michael Chiklis is being considered for Curly as he already played my favorite Stooge in the tv biopic 'The Three Stooges' back in 2000.
