A Dumb and Dumber sequel, starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and directed by the Farrelly brothers, is in the works, according to Deadline.com.
Just when I thought they couldn't possibly be any dumber, they go and do something like this. And totally redeem themselves!
Dumb and Dumber, you see, has been ripe for a sequel since the original's release in 1994. Peter and Bobby Farrelly have long wished for a sequel of the original, which starred Carrey as Lloyd Christmas and Daniels as Harry Dunne.
It didn't seem likely. I mean, 17 years. That's like a one-in-a-million chance, there.
But you're telling me there's a chance? Yes, there's a very good chance. The first film's producers, Charles B. Wessler, Brad Krevoy and Steve Stabler will return, and Sean Anders and John Morris will write the script.
Carrey, probably not out wearing an orange suit, had discussed the possibility of a sequel while promoting Mr. Popper's Penguins. But the Farrelly brothers were busy directing The Three Stooges, and Anders and Morris were co-directing the Adam Sandler comedy I Hate You Dad.
In 2003, a prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, was released. It flopped, receiving just a 10 percent approval rating on the site Rotten Tomatoes and grossing just fewer than $40 million, compared to nearly $250 million for the original.
Whoa, Big Gulps, huh? All right! Well, see ya later.
