Dumb And Dumber 2 on the way

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels to return

The Three Stooges might have brought us nothing but stony faces so far, but that all changed at the recent press junket, at which the Farrelly brothers announced that production will soon begin on Dumb And Dumber 2.

"We're getting set to shoot Dumb And Dumber 2 in September," revealed Peter Farrelly. "It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."

Carrey was thought to be in discussions to reprise his role as Lloyd Christmas last summer, but since then, the project had gone a little quiet. Now, production is expected to start by the end of the year, with both Carrey and Daniels on board.

Meanwhile, Farrelly is keen to distance himself from the 2003 prequel Dumb And Dumberer, stressing that this new film will be the first true return to the characters made famous by the 1994 original.

"We did not do Dumb And Dumberer,'" he says. "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.'"

Sounds like round two will be with us sooner rather than later, then. A crumb of comfort then, should you find yourself being dragged to The Three Stooges on 20 July...

Do you want a Dumb And Dumber sequel, or should they leave the property alone? Tell us, below.

      I think this one could be good if they get it right. i mean if Carrey, Daniels, and the Farrelly's are on board why not? Carrey seem to have pretty good quality control most of the time and Daniels is a class act so i'm looking forward to it...

      Yeah because The Son of the Mask is a cherished classic.

      @Hadouken76 Carrey had nothing to do with that pile of c**p?

      Jim Carey needs money? Dumb And Dumber was sort of a original movie. It was fun (if this is the right word) while it lasted. But having a sequel is more then pointless. It just seems like a dumb idea.

      The son of the mask and Dumb and Dumberer had nothing to do with anyone involved with the originals. I think we should give it a chance. It may have been 18 years but i've always wanted to see a sequel to Dumb and Dumber. Maybe they are all after a monster hit these days but I dont think they would sign up to do complete rubbish and ruin the memory of the original. Lets just wait and see what happens.

      To those who think this sequel will be pointless, there is a simple solution...don't buy any tickets. For the rest of us that have been wishing for a sequel especially after the huge pile of c**p let down that was the prequel...we are gonna enjoy it. Keep your buzzkills out of the theaters.

      Love the original. Completely ignored any sequels which as someone has already mentioned had nothing to do with the anyone involved.. I'll watch it. Harry and Lloyd were funny characters. Hugely quotable. The toilet scene, snowball scene, the suits, pets heads falling off, 'just go man, just go', annoying sound in the world... I could go on!

      dumb and dumber is one of my favorite movies of all time not because im a guy but because it is truly that fun and funny to watch. what they need is 1st get both jim and jeff to get back into shape use alot of Hollywood magic to look like there old characters of Lloyd & Harry 2nd they need to make a 10 minuet video of the movie maybe a few scenes made out of the own pocket money to show whats it gonna be like this time around (which is still gonna be awesome and funny skrew u freaking haters u can crawl back into the rat holes you came from there is no necessary movie you d*****sses they are made for our enjoyment duh) like i said before they need to make a 10 minuet trailer of a few scenes to get people interested because when they read the title "dumb & dumber 2" and automatically think of the bad transformer series. i mean come on when are they going to stop comparing every freaking sequel to those damn things. sequels have worked in the past and not everyone is gonna end up like a over blown transformer twilight or Indiana Jones movie. people need to let those go and enjoy a piece of the great past of Dumb & Dumber with its sequel.
