Comingsoon.net have got hold of an exclusive that will have fans of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne very excited. After hinting that Bobby and Peter Farrelly (y'know, the Farelly Brothers) were looking to develop a proper sequel to their 1994 mega hit, Dumb and Dumber, it now appears that they've managed to tie in their original stars as well. Peter Farelly has told the site;
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.He also went on to reiterate that the lousy 2003 prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, was never anything the Farrelly's had anything to do with;
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.'Dumb and Dumber was one of the catalysts that lead to Jim Carrey's rapid rise to super stardom back in 1994 and, for a while, The Farrelly Brothers were the biggest name in movie comedy. So what do you guys think about this sequel? Will it work nearly twenty years on? Are the Farrelly's going back to the well, desperate for a hit after a string of not so great comedies and a luke warm reaction to their upcoming Three Stooges movie? I have nothing but positive hopes for this sequel just because I love the original so much but what with this, a potential new Bill and Ted movie and the possibility of a Twins sequel on the way, isn't it about time Michael Myers rolled out Wayne's World 3?
