The 2012 film reboot by the Farrelly’s wasn’t a big hit, so “The Three Stooges” brand owners C3 Entertainment is trying a different angle of attack – this time with a youthified prequel.
A casting search is now underway for a trio of 12-year-olds to play child versions of Moe and Curly Howard and Larry Fine in “The Three Little Stooges”.
Harris Goldberg (“Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo”) has penned and is attached to direct the film which isn’t going to be an origin story, but rather an original story with the trio for family audiences.
ARC Entertainment will distribute the project and the hope is it will lead to a potential franchise. Filming is scheduled to begin this summer in Vancouver.
This project is separate to the proposed sequel to the 2012 film which is said to still be in development.
