Farrellys Want to Get ‘Dumb & Dumber’ Again with Carrey and Daniels

Directing team Bobby and Peter Farrelly, perhaps best known for their late ‘90s classic There’s Something About Mary, just finished up The Three Stooges. That was a passion project for the brothers, but now they’re returning to their roots in hopes to revitalize the “Dumb and Dumber franchise.

Deadline Hollywood relays that the brothers want Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey to reprise their roles as the not-so-smart best friends. Sean Anders  and John Morris, who collaborated to write Sex Drive, Hot Tub Time Machine, and Carrey-starrer Mr. Popper’s Penguins, have been brought on to pen the script.

Neither Daniels nor Carrey has been confirmed to hop back on board, but Carrey dropped some hints pointing towards another “Dumber” installment when he promoted “Penguins” earlier this year. Hopefully the two reprise their roles so we don’t have another Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, which was a dud in every way possible.

Would you be excited for another “Dumb and Dumber,” or is the idea just, well, dumb?
