Dumb And Dumber 2: Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels Will Start Filming This Year

dumb and dumber

Fans of comedy sequels should be ecstatic. It was recently announced that Will Ferrell was working on “Anchorman 2″ and now Peter Farrelly has confirmed that filming on “Dumb and Dumber 2″ would start sometime this year. And unlike the classic movie’s prequel, “Dumb and Dumberer,” this movie will bring back both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.

Farrelly, who is currently doing a press tour to promote his new movie “The Three Stooges,” said:

“We’re getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September. It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done… And we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”

Farrelly said that he has always wanted to do a sequel to the classic 1994 movie and made sure to mention to Comingsoon.net that he had nothing to do with the 2003 prequel, “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.”

Farrelly said:

“We did not do “Dumb and Dumberer”… 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.'”

Carrey and Daniels have both come a long way since the idiotic best friends they portrayed in “Dumb and Dumber.” Carrey has won two Golden Globes and has starred in movies like “Man On The Moon,” “The Truman Show,” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” He’s partner in crime, Jeff Daniels, has also stayed away from slapstick for awhile.

Here’s the trailer for “Dumb and Dumber.”

    The first movie had some funny moments. My favorite line was about the Monkees influencing the Beatles. I could have done without the laxative bit. That's never funny. I didn't see the prequel. Sequels require two things. One, they must have a good story. More sequels than we care to mention were more retellings than a continuation of the original story. Two, bring back the original cast. Having the same director and writers also helps. I have one suggestion for the sequel. This time, they get on the bus! Let them ride it until their next destination.

    WOOOT! Now we just need a sequal to Napolean Dynamite, Farris Buellers Day Off, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and Old School then we will be set! :-)

    Probably the 2 funniest actors working today, What a breath of fresh air to get a break from the riff raff Hollywood has to offer lately!

  6. Bill Haraldstad

    Yyyes! Finally, a sequel worth looking forward to! The first is pure comedy genius and I can easily skip over that horrid prequel and acknowledge this. I lllike it a lllot!

    I absolutely love the original.. and the fact they got both Jim and Jeff to come back to do the 2nd one? HELL YES. Dumb and Dumber is one of my favorite Jim Carrey movies. This is gonna rock! :)

    Kristen me and all the kids can quote all of Jim Carey's movies from Ace Venture 1 and 2…to Liar liar…yes man….etc. Love that dude!! The Two Ace Ventura's we all know word for word!!!

  9. Josh Rowe

    Never saw the first Anchorman so I don't care much about the 2nd one to that. But Dumb and Dumber 2? FUCK YEAH! I am very pleased they got Jim AND Jeff to come back to do it too, that makes it even better. I never did accept that shit ass "Dumb and Dumberer" movie they put out.. but again.. they stated they never had any part of that. That was just Hollywood's attempt at making money off the first film. Seriously can't wait for this movie.

    I wanna go some place warm, a place where the beer flows like wine, a place where the beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of capastrano. I'm talking about ASPEN! I don't know Lloyd the French are ass holes!! Lol

    I am another one that can’t wait for this to happen. I just read an update today saying it is official dumb & dumber 2 has been green-lighted there all set for production. both Jim & Jeff are returning as Harry and Lloyd they said there taking the stupidity to the next level. there putting a message on the bottom saying kids don’t do this at home its that stupid.

    maan its all over the news. I also herd over the years that when jim & jeff made the first they were basically hanging out putting alot of themselves into it. so basically that's what there going to do again as from what I read from other posts.

    so I'm guessing when they do get together for this its going to be like old times for them and the movie is going to go off with a bang.

    how can dumb & dumber 2 not be good when the two leading actors want to do this they're going to just hang out and be themselves like last time. I mean there isn’t much story to any dumb & dumber movie so just hang out do alot of dumb s*** with alittle bit of story then bam a big hit.

    please bring back the mutts cutts dog van ya know the big doggy van that was in half the movie.
    that van is classic for dumb & dumber its like the ecto#1 the dog van has to be in.

    plus harry and lloyd need to travel again its what made the movie a big hit cause it brought alot of comedy like the manly love bathroom scene with seabass or lloyd peeing in bear bottle scene.

    if there going to bring back some old jokes that were in part 1. then switch it up like let harry get caught in the bathroom for his own manly scene or have lloyd do his own s***ting his brains out scene basically switch the old jokes between them.

    i can’t wait for Dumb & Dumber 2 its even looking closer then other squeals being said to be made beetlejuice 2 and *cough hack*ghost*cough*busters* hack*3 lmao.

    there's a director the two leading actors are returning universal pictures company picks it up and gives it a green light set for this summer so I don’t see anything that could stop this newly dumb & dumber 2 train because everything is set this time…YES!
