Talking to Variety about the new "Stooges", Peter insisted that the movie won't be a biopic. "It's not a biopic. It takes place in present day, and they look, dress and sound exactly like the Stooges," he said.
"When the economy started turning, we felt like the world could use a Stooges slapfest. Bobby and I haven't done a real physical comedy in a while, and it's the most exciting thing we could think of now, to have people go to the movie, see some great slapstick fun family humor."
