Almost 18 years after Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne made us burst into tears of laughter, both Jim Carrey and Jaff Daniels will be back in the sequel that will start production in September. We knew late last year, that both actors would reprise their roles from the 1994 smash hit, but this is the first news of any confirmation on the project since.
Bobby and Peter Farelly will be back to helm the follow-up, which will hopefully wipe any memory of the dreadful prequel from 2003. Here is what Peter Farrelly had to say while promoting their upcoming THE THREE STOOGES reboot:-
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.
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.
The gross-out comedy of the clueless, miss-matched duo is beloved by fans and was the film the kick-started Carrey on the road to super-stardom, that first began with ACE VENTURA and THE MASK. To be honest, after his recent output, Carrey needs a hit and here is hoping DUMB AND DUMBER 2 will be just as good as the original.
