Jim Carrey seems to think that the trouble plagued THREE STOOGES film by the Farrelly brothers might just be a dead project. Jim Carrey was supposed to play Curly. Sean Penn was in , then out, then back in as Larry. And Benicio Tel Toro was cast as Moe. Carrey was at first deeply committed to the role, experimenting with putting on more weight to play the portly Curly. But, he seemed to lose faith in the project over the last few weeks.
It still might be possible that the Farrelly brothers will go ahead with this project. But, with actors in and out of it like revolving doors, it might just be a dead concept. Maybe there's just no substitute for the original guys. Some things are really best the first time around.
