Depp, Penn Up For “Three Stooges”?

For their upcoming “Three Stooges” project, you can’t blame the Farrelly Brothers for aiming high.

According to In Touch via Just Jared, the filmmakers are seeking both Johnny Depp and Sean Penn for their upcoming remake/anthology film.

“They want Johnny to play Moe and Sean Penn will be Larry – they’re still looking to cast Curly” an insider apparently told the paper.

No names are confirmed and Film Drunk adds that the Depp rumor is bogus, though they add that Billy West is meeting with Sean Penn in L.A. today and tomorrow to help him work on his Larry impression/dialect.

Either way the Farrellys won’t begin work on the project til they complete their current film “Walter the Farting Dog” starring the Jonas Brothers which kicks off production this spring.
