18 years after the original lowered the collective IQ's of audiences all over the country, Peter and Bobby Farrelly are gearing up for a sequel to their 1994 comedy classic, Dumb and Dumber, according to Coming Soon. The sequel will reunite original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the roles of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne respectively. The last time these characters were on the screen was in the ill-fated prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, which didn't feature any of the original cast or crew.
The site is reporting that production on the movie will begin in September of this year and that Sean Anders and John Morris are providing the screenplay. Unlike the critically-panned prequel, Peter Farrelly told the site that this is a sequel that everyone wanted to do.
"We did not do Dumb and Dumberer," Farrelly said in an interview with the site. "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.'"
We'll have more information on Dumb and Dumber 2 as it becomes available.
