It’s been almost twenty years since Jim Carrey (The Mask) and Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) played absolutely clueless best friends in 1994′s Dumb and Dumber. Back to make more stupid decisions, the original actors are planning to reunite for a sequel to the surprise smash comedy. They begin shooting this coming September. This is the first sequel the Farrelly Brothers have ever attempted.
Screenwriters, Sean Anders and John Morris, have been hired to write the script for the sequel. According to Peter Farrelly, the new movie starring Carrey and Daniels will be nothing like the 2003 prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (starring Eric Christian Olsen and Derek Richardson). – Thankfully. Farrelly clarified.
“That was a studio thing. 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.’”
