It’s been rumored for some time, and following years of speculation, Peter and Bobby Farrelly have finally announced a sequel to Dumb and Dumber is on the way. Great news, what’s even better however is that both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are set to reprise their original roles. And just to raise your excitement level a little more, apparently it’s going into production later this year.
“We’re getting set to shoot ‘Dumb and Dumber 2′ in September,“ Peter Farrelly says. “It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done and we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”
Sounds fantastic! And just to set your mind at ease, apparently this will not be another Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
Peter Farrelly goes onto to stress, ”We did not do ‘Dumb and Dumberer, 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.’”
I vividly remember watching Dumb and Dumber as knee-high youngster, marveling at the stupidity unfolding onscreen before me. So while I’m most definitely excited at a proposed sequel for the classic comedy, I can’t help but to feel a little anxious about it. I mean how often do these long-awaited sequels actually work? However maybe this will turn out to be the exception to the rule, resulting in a comedic masterpiece to rival the original. I guess we’ll have to await for further details to emerge before knowing for sure.
