Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels To Shoot Dumb and Dumber Sequel
LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are teaming up again for the sequel to their 1994 hit comedy, Dumb and Dumber.
Writers Sean Anders and John Morris (Hot Tub Time Machine, Mr. Popper's Penguins) have been attached to pen the script since October while the Farrelly brothers are set to direct.
"We're getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September," Peter Farrelly told ComingSoon.net during a Three Stooges press junket over the weekend. "It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."
During the junket, the director also shared his thoughts on the difference between this sequel and the 2003 prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
"We did not do Dumb and Dumberer," Farrelly added. "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.'"
