Will The Three Stooges Movie Ever Happen?

jim carrey says that three stooges movie is dead

The Three Stooges movie has been a long time coming, but much like the long-anticipated Dune movie, it looks like this is probably not going to happen…or at least not anytime soon.

Here's what on-again, off-again potential Curly actor Jim Carrey had to say about the project:

"I think it's dead. It's dead at least to me."

More from Carrey:

"There wasn't any creative difficulties that led to this exit, but rather the weight gain for the role. For me, I don't really want to do anything halfway, and I don't feel like a fat suit does it. I started experimenting with it a little bit, and I gained 35, 40 pounds. I wanted to gain another 30, 40. When you're [Robert] De Niro in your 20s or early 30s, you can kind of come back from that. It's a tough thing to come back from when you're upwards of 30. Your body can't carry it or you can have a cardiac arrest."

Other cast members that have been attached to the project include Benicio Del Toro as Moe, Sean Penn as Larry, then Paul Giamatti as a replacement Larry.

Who knows which of these actors are still interested in doing the project. Unfortunately, Jim Carrey's exit doesn't strike us as a great sign!

Do U still want the Three Stooges movie to happen? If so, who do U think should take over the role of Curly?

    The movie is a great idea and Danny Devito is perfect for the part… But his voice not so much.

    Re: Paris France – A few years back, he played Curley on a TV movie produced by Mel Gibson who is a big Three Stooges fan. Chiklis was a lot heavier then. I agree with Carey, they need younger actors. With the right actors, it can be as funny as The Hangover.
