The Farrelly brothers are getting ready to shoot a sequel to their comedy classic, Dumb And Dumber, and the original Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, are back.
First an Anchorman sequel and now Dumb and Dumber, what a great month this has been.
Coming Soon sat down with Peter Farrelly at a junket for the new Three Stooges, and the director confirmed they would be filming a Dumb and Dumber sequel. “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. … 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,’” said Farrelly.
The original, which was a film that jump started Jim Carrey’s career, was given a preguel in 2003 Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, but Farrelly wants fans to know that he had nothing to do with that film.
“We did not do Dumb and Dumberer,” Farrelly added. “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.’”
