First Trailer for The Three Stooges Basically What You Think It Would Be
12.08.11 by Ryan
It's been a long road for writer-directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly and their reboot of The Three Stooges. The sibling movie-makers began working on the movie in 2009, and put together a surprising cast that included Benicio Del Toro as Moe, Sean Penn as Larry, and Jim Carrey as Curly. However, financial problems at MGM put The Three Stooges into limbo, and by the time 20th Century Fox took over the production, the cast had moved on to other projects.
After months of searching and testing, the Farrellys finally set their lead cast with Will Sasso (Mad TV, Life As We Know It) as Curly, Sean Hayes (Will and Grace) as Larry, and Chris Diamantopoulos (ReelzChannel's The Kennedys) as Moe. Split into three, 27-minute shorts, The Three Stooges co-stars Jennifer Hudson as Sister Rosemary, Larry David (HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Mother Mengele, Sofia Vergara as love interest Lydia and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi as, well, Snooki.
The first trailer has finally arrived, offering the first look at the movie, which appears to be as loyal to the original Stooges movies as the Farellys had previously promised.
Just in case you need it, here's the official synopsis for The Three Stooges.
Left on a nun's doorstep, Larry, Curly and Moe grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Out to save their childhood home, only The Three Stooges could become embroiled in an oddball murder plot...while also stumbling into starring in a phenomenally successful TV reality show.
The Three Stooges was written by the Farrellys along with Mike Cerrone (Me, Myself & Irene). Jane Lynch (Glee) co-stars as Mother Superior.
