    Dumb and Dumber 2′ To Begin Production This Year

    Bobby and Peter Farrelly are preparing to start filming a Dumb and Dumber sequel later this year, with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprising their roles as Lloyd and Harry.

    While in attendance at the junket for their delayed Three Stooges movie which finally hits theaters this month the Farrelly Brothers provided an update on another long-gestating, belated comedy project of theirs: Dumb and Dumber 2, a proper sequel to the filmmakers 1994 breakout hit starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as the incorrigibly dim-witted duo that is Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne.

    Word got out last fall that a second Dumb and Dumber flick is being actively developed, with Carrey and Daniels both poised to reprise their iconic comical roles. According to the Farrellys, there is indeed some actual fire behind that particular cloud of smoke.

    Peter Farrelly has revealed that production on Dumb and Dumber 2 is set to begin by September of this year, based on a script draft penned by writing duo Sean Anders and John Morris (Shes Out of My League, Hot Tub Time Machine). Similarly, both Carrey and Daniels are in line to return for the sequel, according to the slightly more mature (re: older) of the two Farrelly siblings.

    Dumb and Dumber 2 is expected to catch up with Lloyd and Harry in real time, some 18 years after the events of its predecessor (a la Clerks 2 and this weeks American Reunion). As Bobby Farrelly has previously put it, the driving force behind this sequel will be to see what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life and exploit it for maximum comedic effect, naturally.

    Its an idea that most fans (the Screen Rant staff included) have been cautiously optimistic about so far. That optimism stems from an enduring affection for the original Dumb and Dumber flick, while the caution is due to the poor track record of belated sequels to say nothing of the Farrelly Brothers unmemorable output over the past decade (Fever Pitch, The Heartbreak Kid, Hall Pass).



    Interestingly, while offering the Dumb and Dumber 2 production update, Peter Farrelly also took a moment to address the widely-disliked prequel Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd (which he and his brother were not involved with):

    We did not do Dumb and Dumberer. That was a studio thing. So weve always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim [Carrey] called up. Jeff [Daniels] always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, Weve got to do this thing again. He had just watched Dumb and Dumber and he said, This is the perfect sequel. Lets do it.

    Carrey, like the Farrellys, has been accused of running on fumes in some of his more recent comedy vehicles (Yes Man, Mr. Poppers Penguins) and could make a return-to-form with Dumb and Dumber 2. That both he and the Farrellys have something to prove with the long-coming sequel should only help to ensure that it amounts to more than just a lackluster attempt to cash in on its predecessors enduring popularity.

    We will continue to keep you up-to-date on the status of Dumb and Dumber 2 as more information is released.

    Me, myself and Irene was the last farrelly brothers movie i truly enjoyed, hopefully this turns out to be more then just a cash in.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
    Live and die on this day.

    I quite liked dumb and dumberer, the actors did a great job of capturing the characters personalities.

    I'm hoping this will be a return to form for Jim Carrey

    Me, Myself & Irene is by far, my favorite Jim Carrey movie of all time. That was so awesome. Stuck on You wasn't too bad either.

    I saw Dumb and Dumber in theaters as a kid and i gotta say it was the first movie to make me laugh so hard my sides and abs hurt for a whole week. Not many things make me laugh that hard. I will see this first day no matter how bad it is just for Nostalgia.

    God I hope this is gonna be good, that they really put the care into the story/script.

    Dumb and Dumber, along with Ace Ventura Pet Detective, Happy Gilmore, and Billy Madison are my favorite comedies. The 90s were the glory years for goofy comedies.

    My reaction


    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Me, Myself & Irene is a great one, but I don't think it touches Dumb and Dumber. Closer to Ace Ventura.

    And Jim Carrey isn't in Stuck on You haha. That's Matt Damon and the dad from Little Miss Sunshine (which I can't stand apart from Alan Arkin).

    I was referring to Stuck on You as a Farrely brothers movie
