John Debney has been hired to score the upcoming slapstick comedy The Three Stooges. The film based on the mid-20th century comedy shorts is directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber). The movie stars Chris Diamantopolous as Moe Howard, Sean Hayes as Larry Fine and Will Sasso as Curly Howard. Sofia Vergara, Jane Lynch, Larry David, Jennifer Hudson, Craig Bierko and Carly Craig are co-starring. Mike Cerrone (Me, Myself and Irene) co-wrote the screenplay with the Farrelly Brothers who are also producing with Bradley Thomas and Charles B. Wessler. The Three Stooges takes place when the trio are dumped out as newborns at the door of an orphanage and the story follows them into adulthood. According to an interview with Peter Farrelly on, the film is structured in three acts, each a stand-alone story like the original episodes, but loosely connected. No release date has been announced yet for the 20th Century Fox production.

As reported earlier this year, Debney also has the comedy The Change-Up starring Ryan Reynolds, Jason Bateman and Olivia Wilde, Jim Sheridan’s thriller Dream House starring Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, as well as the thriller The Double and the comedies New Year’s Eve and A Thousand Words coming out in the near future.

    Ojalá le vaya bien a Debney, que es un compositor muy regular y tiene muy mala reputación por ser un copiador de bandas sonoras…

  2. Have you heard if Debney’s score is being released separately from the music in the movie?

    Is there really going to be a soundtrack based on The Three Stooges? I’d really like to hear those intro and outro themes from the movie. 🙂
