'Modern Family's' Sofia Vergara is rumored to be very close to getting an offer for a femme fatale part in the Farrelly brothers' big-screen version of 'The Three Stooges.'

The comedy -- starring Sean Hayes as Larry and Will Sasso as Curly -- will be divided into three 27-minute segments (mimicking the length of the original Three Stooges shorts) with much of the action set in the present day (no, it won't be a period piece).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vergara's character is a devious woman who pretends to be the wife of a dying man; she wants the Stooges to kill him in his sleep for a handsome sum. The storyline makes up the second vignette.
