Bust out the orange and periwinkle tuxedos, folks. Peter Farrelly revealed over the weekend that filming will begin for the sequel to Dumb and Dumber’ this September, with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels set to reprise their roles as America’s favorite bone-headed duo. And just so no one confuses this follow-up with the incredibly unfunny prequel “Dumb and Dumberer,” Farrelly further clarified that “We [the Farrelly brothers] did not do ‘Dumb and Dumberer.’ That was a studio thing.”
Sean Anders and John Morris, who previously wrote ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ and ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins,’ are penning the script, but don’t put all of your dead parakeets in one basket just yet. According to a source close to the production, “it’s not greenlit yet.” Surely though with the social media furor that the ‘Anchorman’ sequel announcement just created, this long-awaited sequel will get its day in the sun as well.
i'm sure it'll get the green light once filming begins. man, i've dreamt about a sequel with the original cast being made for years. so happy it's finally being made.
