"Oscar winner Sean Penn (Milk) has dropped out of MGM's The Three Stooges... citing personal reasons. He reportedly won't work for a year.
Peter and Bobby Farrelly have spent the better part of a decade trying to get Stooges off the ground, and in March they pulled off a major casting coup: Penn as Larry, with Jim Carrey as Curly and Benicio Del Toro as Moe.
Now MGM and the Farrellys, who wrote the script and are slated to direct, need to decide whether they will wait for Penn or seek to find a new actor. The film is eyeing a late August start date for a 2010 release."
Well, what are you gonna do Farrellys?
