I didn’t want to acknowledge its existence, but the time has come. The Farrelly brothers have created their “passion project” and it is a modern update of The Three Stooges. Headlined by Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos as our trio of Larry, Curly and Moe, we have our first teaser trailer. Slapstick can be done right and this looks to be the cringe-worthy version (Jersey Shore? Come on). I understand the Farrellys are attempting to capture the magic of the original troupe, but I can’t comprehend why we can’t all just watch those, as they clearly still hold up. Nonetheless, you can see the trailer below via Apple for the film also starring Jane Lynch, Jennifer Hudson, Sofia Vergara, Craig Bierko, Stephen Collins and Larry David.
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 hits theaters April 13th, 2012.
