The Farrelly Brothers‘ much anticipated film on the classic comic trio, The Three Stooges, has been creating a lot of buzz for quite some time. But after years of failed attempts to bring the flick to the silver screen, a cast has finally been assembled and shooting has commenced. But what’s the connection to Bravo‘s hit reality series The Real Housewives of Atlanta?
The movie, which features Will & Grace star Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamontopoulos as beloved characters Larry Fine, Moe and Curly Howard, will be a modern-day take on the Stooges, and will likely consist of a number of short films.
And the house where most of the film’s scenes are being shot? A $19.9 million dollar mansion that belongs to none other than Big Poppa!
Kim Zolciak’s infamous sugar daddy put the nine bedroom, 11 bath mansion on the market years ago, listing it at $25 million. Still without a buyer, the house has been greatly reduced in price, but with 7 kitchens, 2 gyms, a ballroom, a recording studio, a hair & nail salon, a theater, and a pool, it’s served as the perfect spot for the movie set, with plenty of space for the entire film crew.
Let’s see… A recording studio, hair and nail salon…. Yup, it definitely sounds like a place Kim Zolciak would hang out! It also explains the attraction to Big Poppa.
But that’s not the movie’s only reality TV connection.
American Idol alum and Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson recently signed on to play one of three nuns in the orphanage where the trio spent time as children. “Sister Rosemary” will reportedly be accompanied by another big name — Curb Your Enthusiam‘s Larry David, who’s rumored to be getting into the habit for the film. The Farrelly Brothers have also tapped Glee star Jane Lynch for the role of Mother Superior.
