There have been a lot of rumors flying around about a proper sequel to Dumb and Dumber, and every few months we seem to get more info on the development of the film. Well it must be that time again because Jimmy Fallon managed to get a bit of information out of Jeff Daniels who appeared on his late night show.
There was fear that the film, entitled Dumb and Dumber To, would never happen, and even Jeff Daniels seemed skeptical that it would really happen until he is “staring at Jim Carrey,” but he still confirmed that filming would begin in September for a release next year. Daniels also confirmed that he Carrey and the Farrelly Brothers, directors of the original, would be back.
All were absent from the 2003 prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd which just about everyone agrees was terrible. Daniels also confirmed that the characters would be middle aged and that the script is “hysterical.” Best of all he confirmed that Harry and Lloyd “are still that stupid.”
