The Dumb And Dumber sequel appears to be back on again.
The sequel, officially titled Dumb And Dumber To, has been in the works since April 2012. However, original backers Warners Bros passed on the project last week (June 11), forcing the Farrelly Brothers to shop it around to new film studios.
According to The Hollywood Reporter's sources, shooting could now take place this summer for a 2014 release: the 20th anniversary of the original film. Both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are on board to reprise their roles.
Written and directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, the original Dumb And Dumber came out in 1994 and starred Carrey and Daniels as dimwitted friends on a road trip. A prequel called Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd followed in 2003, but it did not feature the original stars or any involvement from the Farrelly Brothers.
