"Dumb and Dumber" Sequel Starts Filming This September03 Apr 2012
By Lucas Allen (Web correspondent)
ComingSoon.net broke the news that the upcoming Dumb and Dumber sequel will begin filming sometime this September. At a press junket to promote their new 20th Century Fox comedy The Three Stooges, directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly revealed their plans to film their upcoming sequel to their 1994 comedy hit. "We're getting set to shoot "Dumb and Dumber 2" in September," Peter says. "It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."
Back in October, it was reported that New Line (under Warner Bros.) hired screenwriters Sean Anders and John Morris to write the script. The two also wrote the comedy hits Hot Tub Time Machine and Mr. Popper’s Penguins (also with Jim). The original also spawned the 2003 prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd that Peter expresses that the prequel had nothing to do with the original or their upcoming sequel. "We did not do 'Dumb and Dumberer,'" he continues. "That was a studio thing. So we've always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, 'We've got to do this thing again.' He had just watched 'Dumb and Dumber' and he said, 'This is the perfect sequel. Let's do it.'"
Jim is even more of a busy beaver this year. He just wrapped co-starring with Steve Carell in the upcoming The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and he’ll be in Europe for the Larry Charles-directed Pierre, Pierre.
