DUMB AND DUMBER SEQUEL WITH JIM CARREY AND JEFF DANIELS???? Easy, easy, temper enthusiasm cause sometimes stuff like this falls through…. but it’s going into production LATER THIS YEAR!!! Whaaa where did how wh…where did this come from MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Peter Farrelly talking to Comingsoon.net:
“We’re getting set to shoot ‘Dumb and Dumber 2′ in September,” he says. “It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done and we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”
“We did not do ‘Dumb and Dumberer,'” he continues. “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.'”
Wow! While I always consciously try not get too excited about these sorts of things before there is an actual, physical completed movie (never count your Hollywood chickens before they are film-hatched, is what Will Rogers once never said), this is pretty damn exciting news. Granted, a D&D sequel in 2013 will have monumental and probably impossible expectations to live up to for us Dumbvotees, but a sequel with the original actors directed by the original director that results in my eyes seeing more film of Harry and Lloyd being on screen doing things is already enough for me to be on board.
Or, to put it another way – WE LANDED ON THE MOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’ll be dancing like Harry at the end of the ‘Pretty Woman’ montage for the rest of the day, but feel free to watch this possible trailer for Dumb And Dumber 2:
