Peter and Bobby Farrelly Move Forward on ‘Dumb and Dumber 2’

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels to reunite for Dumb and Dumber 2 Now that brotherly duo Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly have gotten their dream project The Three Stooges out of the way, they are setting their sights on another long gestating project, the sequel to Dumb and Dumber.

The brothers plan to reunite original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, and have already hired Sex Drive scribes Sean Anders an John Morris to pen the screenplay. Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly hope to direct the film themselves.

The original, which was released by New Line Cinema in 1994, could have been given a sequel earlier, but the studio decided on a cheap knock-off with look-alike actors instead, releasing the prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd in 2003.

There is no set start date for Dumb and Dumber 2, but it could likely be Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly's next directorial effort.

Dumb and Dumber was released December 16th, 1994.

Dumb and Dumber To was released November 14th, 2014.

    Dumb and Dumber is my all time favorite movie, that movie inspires me and gives me hope. The prequel? Horrid, I watched maybe 5 minutes.

              I don't know about this. It's been 17yrs. And I don't think anyone has any respect for the writing minds behind "Sex Drive."

                      Yeah man, I get what you're saying. I just kinda see everyone going through that "not relevant anymore" kick. I'm one of these people who doesn;t care what is made just as long as it's A. Entertaining B. Has artistic merit or C. both A. and B. but C is rarely the case now a days. For me writing comedy is hard cause you never know what's really going to be funny to people until the actors and director get the material. Yeah I can write funny dialog and scenes but I always struggle with it. So I can understand when a comedy doesn't come out right.

                                @messenger Yeah, I Love You Phillip Morris only made about 20 million at the box office. Not exactly a profitable movie, especially concerning that payday of Carrey's. I love Carrey, but let's face it, the guy has not been on a great run the past five years or so. His films have been either mediocre or underperformers (Horton Hears a Who being an exception) at the box office, and as a result, Carrey has been moved to that position of "the not that relevant anymore" status. He needs a big hit to put him back at the front of the class, and since new material has not worked out great for him, he may as well go back to something that garnered him his lofty status. Will it work? I guess we'll see.

                                    For as much money Jim Carrey makes I highly doubt he needs anything. I loved I love you Phillip Morris probably one of his best movies in a long time. As for a 2nd Dumb and Dumber movie, I have faith in Carrey and Daniels, they are both talented and can probably do it justice.

                                          stupid idea. i dont think the first one is funny and a sequel 20 YEARS LATER is just a stupid idea to begin with.
