Directors Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly's Hall Pass hit theaters last weekend. While doing press, Bobby Farrelly revealed that they have plans to resurrect one of their earlier comedy hits, Dumb and Dumber. Here's what Bobby Farrelly had to say about a potential sequel to the 1994 comedy.
"[Dumb and Dumber] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they'll be able to quote lines from that - lines that I've long forgotten. 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. We're starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we'll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel."
The directors also spoke more about their new comedy project, The Three Stooges. While a cast still hasn't been locked in yet, Richard Jenkins will likely have a role in the movie, although it isn't clear what role that will be. Here's what Bobby Farrelly said about Richard Jenkins ' involvement.
"As we were starting [The Three Stooges], my first question was 'Where we gonna put Richard?' We do have a spot in mind for him... but a lot of it has to do with whether the guy's available and that sort of thing. I hope he is."
"We'll probably be a lot less typically Farrelly brothers stuff, we're going to be as true as we can to the spirit of The Three Stooges - they weren't raunchy or outrageous, they were more about the slapstick, almost vaudeville-type humour. It'll probably be less us, more of them."
