The Kidd here...
The Farrelly brothers have been talking for awhile about possibly revisiting the lives of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunn for a sequel to DUMB AND DUMBER. There's been some interest expressed by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, and a script was being worked on late last year by Sean Anders and John Morris (HOT TUB TIME MACHINE). Well, it looks like things took a big step forward over the weekend to DUMB AND DUMBER actually happening in that Peter Farrelly told Coming Soon that the follow-up is set to start shooting by the end of the year.
"We're getting set to shoot DUMB AND DUMBER 2 in September. It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."
I've always been a big fan of DUMB AND DUMBER, so I'm looking forward to seeing where this idiotic pair is in their lives almost 20 years later. If anything, it'll at least help get rid of the awful taste left behind by DUMB AND DUMBERER: WHEN HARRY MET LLOYD, which the Farrellys had nothing to do with.
I realize the Farrellys haven't exactly set the world on fire since they opened their careers strongly with DUMB AND DUMBER, KINGPIN and THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, and they've largely been coasting on the reputations built by that trio of films, but I'm hopeful they might finally be able to bring us a comedy that is actually funny once again by going back to what got them started.
