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.
