This past year there has been a fair amount of buzz surrounding the alleged Dumb and Dumber sequel called Dumb and Dumber To. After almost a year of delays it seems that a script is nearing completion, according to the Farrelly brothers, the film’s writers/directors.
You also might be interested to know that we are almost done with the Dumb and Dumber To (sic) script. I think you’re going to like it.
That’s encouraging considering that Jim Carrey has been back and forth regarding his involvement in the film; the brothers also tweeted that “the film would follow Jim C. and Jeff D.” Carrey has typically not been interested in appearing in sequels to his own films, but has made an exception before (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls).
The film will have nothing to do with 2003 prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry met Lloyd, which the Farrelly brothers, Carrey and Jeff Daniels were not involved with. All of this is good news, but timing may be an issue, Carrey is in the middle of shooting Kick Ass 2 and Jeff Daniels will be shooting the HBO T.V. show The Newsroom starting in November. Finding a sufficient shooting schedule may be tricky, but it will be well worth it to see a true sequel to Dumb and Dumber.
