Andy Samberg and Johnny Knoxville: A Couple Of Stooges?

When MGM was in financial trouble they were forced to give up some projects. One of the projects was the remake of the 3 Stooges that were to be directed by the Farrelly Brothers.  The 3 Stooges were supposed to Jim Carrey, Benicio Del Toro and of all people Sean Penn.  That however was not meant to be.

MGM’s loss is Fox’s gain as Fox now has the project.  The Farrelly Brothers are still attached to direct.  The Wrap reports that Andy Samberg, Johnny Knoxville and Austriallian comic/actor Shane Jacobson are on the shortlist of actors wanted for the new stooges.

There has been a lot of talk on whether this reboot/remake of the 3 Stooges will ever happen.  For me if this project never gets off the ground it wouldn’t bother me much.  I think they should leave well enough alone, the original 3 Stooges are classics, there’s no need to make a new version other than to try to make some more money.

What is your opinion? Do you think a new version of the 3 Stooges will be good? Or do you think Fox should leave well enough alone?
