'Dumb and Dumber' sequel in the works?

A “Dumb And Dumber” sequel might be the Farrelly brothers’ next project, Deadline reports. And yes, they would employ the original cast!

Writers have already been hired to script the film, and now that “Dumb and Dumber” directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly have wrapped “The Three Stooges,” another Harry and Lloyd adventure may be next on their list.

If you lived under a rock during the ‘90s, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels starred in 1994 hit “Dumb and Dumber” as dimwitted pals Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne.

While promoting “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” in June, Carrey hinted at a “Dumber” sequel. New York Magazine’s Vulture reported that the actor mentioned "returning to some old characters that everyone has been asking about." To be specific, "we’re talking about maybe another ‘Dumb and Dumber.’”

And according to Movieline, Bobby Farrelly has also mentioned making the movie: "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.”

Hopefully, Carrey and Daniels can make us forget about New Line’s terrible 2003 prequel, “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.”

“The Three Stooges” hits theaters April 4, 2012.

    OK I guess "Mr. Vandolay" didn't read the article! There was PREQUEL made by some other jacka$$es not the farrelly bros and it sucked a$$. This would be an actual SEQUEL of the original movie with the same actors and the same producers/directors. DUH! Anyway I LOVEDLOVED this movie and me and my 11 year old watch it often and recite quotes from the movie too!

    Dumb and Dumberer was a prequel. A very bad one at that.

    If they make a true sequel, hopefully they'll capture the vibe of the original.

    They already did the sequel: "Dumb and Dunberer", with 2 look alike morons. How about a prequel? Harry and Lloyd the GED years. -Art

  18. Great movie and soundtrack

    To me, Dumb and Dumber is a reminder of everything that was great about the 90s...funny movies, great music (Mary Moon!), good intentions and having innocent fun. I am with the previous commentor who stated she loves to quote the movie, "Its OK I'm a limo driver!".

    I hope they are able to successfully bring Harry and Lloyd into the new millennium.

  21. loves to laugh!

    OMG! I cannot wait. I am on my 3rd copy of the first one. We (even our kids love it) still watch it frequently, quote our favorite parts and laugh as hard everytime. The fact that the same writers & actors (Carey & Daniels) is hopefully going to make it just as hilarious or even more funny than the first!
