Next Stooges stage

First Look slapped with feature rights

Henry Winterstern’s First Look Studios has picked up the film rights to “The Three Stooges,” but bringing Larry, Moe and Curly to the bigscreen will be no laughing matter. In development for years, project was most recently set up at Warner Bros. Pictures, with the Farrelly brothers penning the script and attached to direct. Studio, however, let the option lapse. First Look struck the deal with rights holder C3 Entertainment, founded in 1959 by Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Jerome “Curly” Howard, creators of the Stooge characters. First Look, working with C3 Entertainment, said it intends to stay true to the flavor of the original Stooges, who created their own brand of slapstick.
