Jennifer Hudson to make funny with ‘Three Stooges’

Jennifer Hudson has joined the cast of 20th Century Fox’s “The Three Stooges” film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Peter and Bobby Farrelly are writing and directing the film with a release date set for next year.

The cast includes Sean Hayes as Larry Fine, Will Sasso as Curly Howard and Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe Howard.

Sofia Vergara, Jane Lynch, Larry David and Stephen Collins have also been cast.

Hudson will play a nun at the orphanage where the Stooges grow up.

The Farrellys are producing with their Conundrum partner Bradley Thomas and Charles B. Wessler.

The PG-rated film will not be a straight-forward narrative but rather three, 27-minute segments with trademark Stooges physical comedy.

Shooting is set to begin later this summer in Atlanta.

Hudson will be seen as the title character in the Winnie Mandela biopic “Winnie.” Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
