Get ready! The Dumb and Dumber sequel will officially begin shooting this September. Are you happy that Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels' comedy classic is making its return?
It's been 18 years since Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels played adorably clueless BFFs in Dumb and Dumber, and now the actors are planning to reunite for sequel to the 1994 smash comedy.
"We're getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September," director Peter Farrelly told ComingSoon.net at The Three Stooges press junket Sunday. "It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."
Screenwriting duo Sean Anders and John Morris
have been hired to pen the script. According to Farrelly, the new movie
starring Carrey, 50, and Daniels, 57, will be nothing like the 2003
prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (starring Eric Christian Olsen and Derek Richardson).
"We did not do Dumb and Dumberer," Farrelly clarified. "That
was a studio thing. 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.'"
