Dumb & Dumber 2 to Start Production in September 2012
Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey are about to reprise their infamous roles in the movie Dumb & Dumber.
It has been eighteen years since Dumb & Dumber first hit the silver-screen and now a second installment is about to start production.
Peter Farrelly confirmed the news during a press junket for his movie The Three Stooges.
“We’re getting set to shoot ‘Dumb and Dumber 2′ in September,” he says. “It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done and we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”
You might remember the 2003 D&D prequel Dumb & Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd. Farrelly says the prequel was done by the studio and this sequel will be different from the prequel.
“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.’”
