Really? Sean Penn to play Larry in Three Stooges movie


 From the we-wouldn't-believe-it-if-it-weren't-in-Variety file: Sean Penn has signed on to play Larry Fine in the Farrelly Brothers long-in-the-works Three Stooges project. Jim Carrey looks likely to play Curly, with all the weight-gain that would involve, and Benicio Del Toro may play Moe. Well, surely with this acting talent it will be a heavy drama about the oft-difficult off-screen lives of the famed funnymen, right? Nope:
The film is not a biopic, but rather a comedy built around the antics of the three characters that Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Howard played in the Columbia Pictures shorts.
The article goes on to detail the projects long, tortured path to its likely fall start date.
