Dumb And Dumber 2 definitely happening, shoots this year
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are both set to return, as the Farrrelly Brothers line up Dumb And Dumber 2 as their next project…
Ignoring the fact that there was a low budget prequel to the film, that involved none of its creative talent, Dumb And Dumber is a movie that was once mooted for a sequel, but nothing ever came of it. Furthermore, Jim Carrey isn’t known for doing follow-ups (not since his Ace Ventura sequel, and Batman Forever, over 15 years ago), and directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly have never done a sequel.
This is all about to change, though. The Farrellys are about to unleash their latest movie, The Three Stooges, into the world. And then after that? They’ve confirmed that they’re pressing ahead with Dumb And Dumber 2.
Peter Farrelly, talking to Coming Soon, confirmed the news, saying “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.”
After making clear that he was nothing to do with the aforementioned prequel, he added that “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.”
And do it they shall. If the film is shooting this autumn, then it’s probably safe to expect it by the end of 2013. We’ll keep you posted…
