We found out back in 2011 that the Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly were planning a sequel to their hit 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber with original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, which was later confirmed by the Farrellys. Since then the project has had ups and downs, from Carrey departing the project to Daniels saying it would begin production this summer to Warner Brothers deciding they would not be greenlighting the sequel.
With all of that now in the past, the Farrelly brothers look to the future. After WB decided they didn’t want to make the movie, it was time to begin shopping it around to other studios who might be interested, and at least one of them was just that. Taking to the Twitter, the Farrellys have announced that the sequel, officially titled Dumb and Dumber To, will go into production with Universal Pictures and Red Granite Pictures.
Here’s the tweet from the Farrellys:
It’s assumed that if this is actually happening, that both Daniels and Carrey are coming back for it. It’d sure be difficult to make a sequel to Dumb and Dumber without either Dumb or Dumber in the movie.
They also might still be able to pull off starting production sometime this summer, depending of course on how ready everyone actually is to begin.
Do you have any interest in a Dumb and Dumber sequel if Carrey and Daniels are involved?
