Sean Penn no longer a STOOGE

When Sean Penn, Jim Carrey, and Benicio Del Toro were announced to play Larry, Curly, and Moe, respectively, for THE THREE STOOGES, my first reaction was, "huh, Sean Penn as Larry Fine?" Uhhhh, whatever.

Good news came to me today, however, as Variety reported yesterday that Penn just dropped the project, along with CARTEL, to take "an undetermined sabbatical -- possibly as much as a year -- to focus on his family."

THE THREE STOOGES, which will be directed by Farrelly brothers Bobby and Peter, are now in a Catch-22 - do they wait for Penn's return to film or recast the stooge?
