Bob Farrelly, one half of "The Farrelly Brothers" writing/directing team (HALL PASS, SHALLOW HAL, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY and ME, MYSELF & IRENE) is hinting that a sequel to the siblings' 1994 Jim Carrey/Jeff Daniels comedy DUMB & DUMBER is kinda/sort being mulled.
“[Dumb and Dumber] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they’ll be able to quote lines from that – lines that I’ve long forgotten. If we could get those two guys back together, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels that might be a worthwhile sequel – and that ball is in motion. We’re starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we’ll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel.”
A non-Farrelly DUMB AND DUMBERER: WHEN HARRY MET LLOYD project was released in 2003 - that picture was a prequel, whereas it sounds like the Farrellys are looking at a follow-up/sequel - returning Daniels and Carrey to their roles (the prequel recast their parts).
