‘Dumb And Dumber’ sequel gets official title from Farrelly Brothers

And the film's writer-directors confirm they are "almost done" with the script

The sequel to Dumb And Dumber has been given an official title by writer-directors the Farrelly Brothers.

The filmmakers took to Twitter to make the announcement yesterday (September 25), posting:


Plans for a sequel were confirmed by Peter Farrelly, one half of the filmmaking duo, back in April this year (2012). The project appeared to fall apart over the summer when Jim Carrey reportedly pulled out and his co-star Jeff Daniels announced that “it’s not happening”.

However, Daniels backtracked last month (August 2012), insisting that he, Carrey and the Farrelly Brothers were all still “keen”. “We’re all hoping that it’ll come together early next year,” he said at the time.

Written and directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, the original Dumb And Dumber came out in 1994 and starred Carrey and Daniels as dim-witted friends navigating pitfalls 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.
