Carrey and Daniels back for Dumb and Dumber sequel

April 2nd, 2012 by bash Comments

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are on board for a sequel to their 1994 comedy smash Dumb and Dumber.

At a junket for their latest movie, The Three Stooges, the Farrelly brothers confirmed that production will begin later this year.

“We’re getting set to shoot ‘Dumb and Dumber 2’ in September,” Peter Farrelly said: “It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done and we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”

Although a prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd was released in 2003, Farrelly said this new movie would be totally different.

“That was a studio thing,” he continued. “So we’ve always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, ‘We’ve got to do this thing again’. He had just watched ‘Dumb and Dumber’ and he said, ‘This is the perfect sequel. Let’s do it’.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
