Jim Carrey in Slapstick Central: “Three Stooges” Remake
The king of contortion, Jim Carrey, is reuniting with the Farrelly brothers, along with Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro, in a modern day version paying tribute to those captains of catastrophe, The Three Stooges.
Following his performances in Farrelly flicks Dumb and Dumber and Me, Myself and Irene, Carrey is lined up to play Curly in the eagerly anticipated re-make. He has even committed to gaining some serious weight for the role, in order to recreate Curly Howard’s rotund form, so there are sure to be some real belly laughs.
My only worry is the prospect of Benicio Del Toro attempting comedy, he plays a great Latino action man but how will he fare when his weapons are gags instead of guns? We shall have until next year to find out.
