This actually might happen, color me stunned. It’s been 18 years since the 1994 Farrelly Brothers’ comedy Dumb and Dumber was released and people have anxiously been waiting/wishing for a sequel. We are so very close now.
Last we heard Jim Carrey was disappointed at the studios faith in the sequel (not giving it enough money), Jeff Daniels was making the late night TV rounds telling people it was most likely a go, and the Farrelly Brothers themselves had began writing. So here we are with some plot details, which sound just about right if you ask me.
“[Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels] are in a point in their career where they had so much fun the first time that they’re willing to do it. We will make this movie.”
As for plot details:
“The story revolves around the fact that one of them may have sired a child. They want to go and find the child because he’s having a kidney problem and he wants to ask him for one of his kidneys.”
According to IGN, the brothers are looking for an autumn 2013 release, and they have confirmed:
“I can tell you that there is no growth out of either one of them.”
Well thank God for that.
Back in October, we told you Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were both ready for a sequel to Dumb and Dumber called Dumb and Dumber To. Now we have the sad news to report that according to ETonline Carrey has left the project after being “frustrated” by the lack of enthusiasm on the part of Warner Bros. “I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer,” Carrey said, “after all it’s implied in the title.”
Well this sucks, if any Jim Carrey movie deserved a proper sequel it’s Dumb and Dumber. The cast was back and original writer-directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly were going to produce and direct the sequel. I can’t imagine it going anywhere now, maybe WB will have a change of heart and actually care about making money.
Jim Carrey can soon be seen alongside Steve Carell in the magician comedy Burt Wonderstone, which opens in 2013.
