Are you excited for Lloyd & Harry’s return, or would you rather they not mess with a good thing?
It’s official! Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels will reprise their iconic Dumb and Dumber characters — Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, respectively — for a sequel to their 1994 comedy, ComingSoon.net is reporting. “We’re getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September,” Peter Farrelly tells the site. “It’s the first sequel we’ve ever done, and we’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”
Though we’d all like to forget the movie’s 2003 prequel, Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, Peter is very much aware of it.
“We did not do Dumb and Dumberer,” he insists. “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.”
The question is: How do you feel about a sequel? I’m choosing to be cautiously optimistic because, while the mere idea of Jim and Jeff reuniting on the big screen is already putting a smile on my face, I’m all too familiar with bad sequels happening to great movies.
HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site Deadline.com originally reported that Dumb and Dumber 2 was in the works.
