Harry and Lloyd are coming back—for real-sies. The Farrelly Brothers will direct Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber 2 starting this fall.
The '90s most famous dumb duo, the very idiots who helped put Peter and Bobby Farrelly on the map as screwball geniuses, will finely get a sequel that will hopefully clear Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloydout of our collective conscience.
In doing press rounds for their upcoming riff on The Three Stooges, Peter Farrelly told ComingSoon.net that the project is something they've wanted to for awhile, regardless of New Line Cinema's 2003 bargain-bin prequel:
"We did not do 'Dumb and Dumberer,' 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.'"
Back in October, we learned that Hot Tub Time Machine and Mr. Popper's Penguins writers Sean Anders and John Morris had been hired to write the script, and it seems that's what the Farrellys will work from when they start production in September.
