Film It’s Like Your Least Favorite Thing Meets Your Other Least Favorite Thing!

MGM has engaged Peter and Bobby Farrelly to renew their quest to channel the comic mayhem of the Three Stooges into a contemporary comedy.
The MGM news marks a homecoming for both the Stooges as well as the Farrellys, who spent five years trying to make the Stooges movie at Warner Bros.
The studio has staked out a Nov. 20, 2009 release date on the film.
That puts the Stooges film up against the Robert Downey Jr. starrer Sherlock Holmes, and the animated film Planet 51. Disney has scheduled the male-skewing comedy Old Dogs with John Travolta for Nov. 25.
Which led me to this exchange on the imdb message board:
Moe: Jim Carrey or Mike Myers
Larry: Jeff Daniels
Curly: Jack Black
Shemp: James Gandolfini
One of the stooge’s love interest: Debra Messing
JACK BLACK WOULD MAKE A HORRIBLE CURLY, HE REALLY ISN’T THAT FUNNY. KEVIN JAMES WOULD COMPLETELY REINVENT CURLY!
I hope you die in a fire.
More details about the deadly fire, the funniness of Jack Black, and how much I don’t want to see “the male-skewing comedy Old Dogs with John Travolta” as they become available.
