Dumb and Dumber sequel in the works

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, the original duo from the 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber, have officially signed on with directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly for the sequel. “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,'” Peter told comingsoon.net. “He had just watched Dumb and Dumber and he said, ‘This is the perfect sequel. Let’s do it.'” Co-director Bobby later confirmed the announcement, adding, “[The] ball is in motion. We’re starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty years later in life, and hopefully we’ll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel.” The project is expected to be released sometime next year with filming to begin in September. The script is already in the works courtesy of Sean Anders and John Morris, the screenwriting pair behind Hot Tub Time Machine and Mr. Popper’s Penguins.

    Oh dear god. Dumb and Dumber wasn’t funny…it was just STUPID! I bet this “sequel” will be just as bad.

    Dumb and Dumber is the greatest comedy of all time. Good luck on the sequel and shame on anyone who didn’t love the first one.

    This is only because he knows his career is pretty much in the toilet so he’s grasping at straws. This will bomb, just like the rest of his films.
