By a hair's breadth, you might say, the film about the Three Stooges being written and directed by the Farrelly brothers and starring Sean Penn appears to be back on track.

According to the Boston Herald, Penn, who had bailed on the project seven months ago as he tried to save his marriage to Robin Wright Penn, has sent signals that he is ready to rejoin the effort and move forward. Once the contract is inked, Penn will play Larry Fine, the Stooge whose wide, unruly mane of hair made him perhaps most optically distinctive of the legendary comic trio.
