Washington, Nov 5 : Farrelly brothers are set to bring retro comedy 'Three Stooges' to the big screen in November 2009.
While casting is underway, the MGM studios have already set the release date for the new incarnations of Larry, Moe and Curly.
"The Three Stooges are a timeless staple of comedy and when we heard what the Farrellys had in mind we knew it was time for Larry, Moe and Curly to return to the big screen," Zap2it quoted MGM Chairman Mary Parent, as saying.
Farrelly Brothers Bobby and Peter have written their Stooges film as an as an origin story for Larry, Moe and Curly.
"We love The Stooges! They have been sending the world into hysterics for more than 80 years," said Peter Farrelly in a statement.
"Movie goers today deserve their own Stooges and we look forward to introducing them to a new generation of knuckleheads," he added.
Farrelly said that they wrote the script two or three years ago but have been developing the film since the '90s
"It was the hardest script we ever wrote, because just the intrinsic nature of the Stooges, it's a lot of hitting. It's all about the hitting and it wears you down. It wears you out," he said.
