I love Dumb and Dumber. It’s one of my “movies to watch when I’m sick” staples, even if the “doggy bag” scene scarred me for life as a child (it was a long time before I could look at a beating heart without making a face). I totally overlooked the prequel, because, well. But the fact remains, the movie is a classic and I know it will remain untouched by the fingers of some greedy Hollywood execut–
Sorry, what was that? I… oh.
Dumb And Dumber 2 has been confirmed to shoot in September.
Co-director Peter Farrelly has revealed plans for a follow-up to the hit 1994 comedy about the cross-country adventures of two intellectually-challenged friends. But he insisted that the new film will be the first true sequel.
He told ComingSoon.net: “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.”
2003 saw the release of prequel Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, but it did not feature the original stars. Farrelly emphasised: “We did not do Dumb And Dumberer. That was a studio thing.
“So we’ve always wanted to do a sequel and 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.”
Farrelly will once again direct with his brother Bob, and Sean Anders and John Morris will write the screenplay.
Once again, I spoke far too soon. Of fucking course there’s a sequel coming out. Nothing’s sacred anymore. God, Hollywood, what’s next? A Neverending Story reboot?
… CAN’T YOU FUCKERS JUST LET A SLEEPING LUCKDRAGON LAY?
