It seems the Farrelly brothers just can’t keep a secret. Right in the middle of his latest press junket for the upcoming Three Stooges, Peter Farrelly dropped a Twitter bomb, not only claiming that the Dumb and Dumber sequel has been given definite the go-ahead, but that it’s also set for filming to commence this year.
The untitled sequel scheduled for release in 2014 will apparently see the return of both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, while the screenwriting duo behind Hot Tub Time Machine and Mr Popper’s Penguins are hard at work on the script.
The original Dumb and Dumber was released way back in 1994 and is credited as one of the films that helped Jim Carrey shoot to fame (Carrey had a busy year that year with Ace Ventura Pet Detective, The Mask and Dumb and Dumber all hitting screens that year.
It’s been 18 years; can Carrey and Daniels pull off two brainless, seriously aging men?
Stay tuned for more info on this sequel as it develops….
