Back in October, we reported that Sean Anders and John Morris (writers of Sex Drive and directors of the upcoming That's My Boy) were scripting Dumb & Dumber 2. The movie wasn't confirmed, but now it looks like it's happening for sure, with original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels returning.
Recently, ComingSoon was able to ask Peter Farrelly about the Dumb & Dumber sequel, where he said:
"We're getting set to shoot 'Dumb and Dumber 2' in September. It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."
So there it is guys, it is official. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels will be returning for the sequel, and it will begin shooting in the fall. How awesome is that? Oh, and if you're thinking "hey, didn't they already do a sequel?" Well, no, they didn't. The 2003 movie Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd was not done by the same team, and Farrelly even stressed that point in the interview.
"We did not do 'Dumb and Dumberer. That was a studio thing. 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.'"
It'll be great to see how this film will develop, especially with the nearly 20-year gap.
