Jim Carrey And Jeff Daniels To Star In 'Dumb And Dumber 2'


The Farrelly Brothers have confirmed that they are set to begin work on a sequel to the hit 1994 comedy "Dumb and Dumber" with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. Speaking at an official press junket for Bobby Farrelly's new film "The Three Stooges," Peter Farrelly reveals that the timing is finally right.

"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."

Rumors swirled last fall that Carrey was in talks to revisit his Lloyd Christmas character, and Peter Farrelly reminds fans that this film has nothing to do with the 2003 prequel "Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd."

"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.'"
