"Dumb and Dumber To" likely to start shooting at the end of summer!

Things are looking up for Lloyd and Harry. EW has confirmed that Universal Pictures picked up the North American distribution rights for Dumb and Dumber To, the in-development sequel to the hit 1994 Jim Carrey/Jeff Daniels comedy Dumb and Dumber. Deadline first reported the news.

Peter and Bobby Farrelly, who most recently directed The Three Stooges, will return to direct the sequel. The Farrelly brothers did a rewrite on the original script which was penned by Sean Anders and John Morris, who co-wrote Hot Tub Time Machine and She’s Out of My League. Stars Carrey and Daniels are also expected to reprise their iconic roles. According to the report, the sequel will find the two friends on a road trip.

Warner Bros. dropped the picture a week ago, leaving room for Universal to step in, with Red Granite signing on to finance the project.

hjohnson 19th-Jun-2013 06:02 pm (UTC)
It's called Dumb and Dumber....

Hence they are dumb.

ionadelfina 19th-Jun-2013 05:50 pm (UTC)

i remember when i was maybe 9 or 10, my whole family was at some cabin watching this movie and my dad had to leave the room at that scene because he was laughing too hard.
babylovesto_x 19th-Jun-2013 06:40 pm (UTC)
omg that's so cute lol

my family love it too, we've all probably watched it too many times to count but still think it never gets old
oxyj3nn 19th-Jun-2013 06:21 pm (UTC)

I have a stupid love for the original and I think the only way I'd see a sequel is if the two guys were actually in it. Not that stupid When Harry Met Llyod bullshit.
josiefier 19th-Jun-2013 06:07 pm (UTC)
I was really hoping this would never happen. The first is a classic.

Jim Carrey is the absolute worst.

Omg he's nauseating. I don't like…automatically hate all of his movies, but I can't stand him in any capacity (actor, comedian, human being)
pastelstar 19th-Jun-2013 06:17 pm (UTC)
I'm actually worried that the stupid kids at my school are now going to insist that ~to~ is the right way to spell "too".
im_chris_hansen 19th-Jun-2013 06:22 pm (UTC)
is that two much to ask?
yurasama_love 19th-Jun-2013 06:17 pm (UTC)
I'll believe it when I see set pics.
grammaire 19th-Jun-2013 06:25 pm (UTC)
D&D is one of my al time favourite movies. If Jim and Daniel are in this, I will see it.
m_scarn 19th-Jun-2013 06:30 pm (UTC)
Stupidly excited for this.
maebytonight1 19th-Jun-2013 06:39 pm (UTC)
No thanks. I think people's standards of comedy has changed drastically from when the original came out. Slap stick comedy is no longer funny to us, and is just plain stupid.
klutzy_girl 19th-Jun-2013 07:21 pm (UTC)
I'm excited for this, although the former English major in me is going to be bothered forever by the "to" even though it's on purpose.

Glad Jeff and Jim are coming back!
hollis1975 19th-Jun-2013 07:22 pm (UTC)
god ENOUGH. i didnt like the first one
hogthedutchie 19th-Jun-2013 07:29 pm (UTC)
Dumb and Dumber is like the most quotable movie OF ALL TIME

"Hey guys. Woah, Big Gulps, huh? All right! Well, see ya later."
