'Dumb And Dumber 2' will start shooting in September, says Jeff Daniels

Jeff Daniels has confirmed that the Dumb And Dumber sequel is definitely back on again.

"I'll believe it's happening when I'm actually there staring at Jim Carrey, but it looks like we're starting in September," he revealed during an appearance on US chatshow Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

The Farrelly Brothers secured new funding for the sequel last month (June) after original backers Warner Bros ultimately decided to pass. They've since announced that Empire Of The Sun will be scoring the film, whose official title is Dumb And Dumber To.

During his chatshow appearance, Daniels also confirmed that Dumb And Dumber To will be released in 2014: the 20th anniversary of the original film. "I've seen the script, it's hysterical. We're middle-aged, we're not pretending we aren't. We're middle-aged and we're still that stupid," he added.

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.
