Jennifer Hudson has joined the cast of the Farrelly brothers’ upcoming The Three Stooges, reports Deadline.
The plot, inspired by original “Three Stooges” shorts, will have the trio left as newborns outside an orphanage and will follow them into adulthood, the full film being divided into three half-hour shorts.
Hudson, best known for her debut role in Dreamgirls, will play Sister Rosemary, a nun at the orphanage where the Stooges grow up. Jane Lynch will be appearing as the orphanage’s Mother Superior and Larry David will star as a nun as well.
The Three Stooges stars Chris Diamantopoulos, Will Sasso and Sean Hayes as the titular trio as well as Stephen Collins and Sofia Vergara.
Production is now underway with an unspecified release date planned, most likely for sometime next year.
