Carrey tweets a picture of the pair in costume as Harry and Lloyd
Directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly started shooting the sequel, officially titled Dumb And Dumber To, in Atlanta yesterday (September 24) and Carrey marked the occasion by sharing a snap of the pair in costume as loveable dumbos Harry and Lloyd.
How Roland Rolls comes out TODAY but it may be a little too sophisticated for Lloyd and Harry! Yep... THEY'RE BAAAAA… http://t.co/bhrYxNPKbv— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) September 24, 2013
Carrey and Daniels are being joined in Dumb And Dumber To by Kathleen Turner, The Walking Dead actress Laurie Holden and Brady Bluhm, who appeared in the original as Billy in 4C, the blind boy to whom Harry and Lloyd sold their headless bird, Petey. Meanwhile, Empire Of The Sun have been hired to write the music for the eagerly-anticipated sequel, which is set for release next year (2014) to mark the 20th anniversary of the original film.
The Farrelly Brothers have collaborated on the script with Bennet Yellin, who also co-wrote the original, as well as screenwriters Sean Anders and John Morris (We're The Millers) and Mike Cerrone (The Three Stooges). Discussing the film's script earlier this week (September 22), Daniels said the writing team have "topped" the infamous toilet scene from the original Dumb And Dumber with some even grislier scenarios.
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 did not feature the original stars or any involvement from the Farrelly Brothers.
