Bobby Farrelly Says a 'Dumb & Dumber' Sequel Could Be on the Way?
Their most recently comedy Hall Pass just hit theaters this past weekend, but Bobby Farrelly (along with his writing/directing partner and brother Peter Farrelly) have their eyes on the future. Their vision even surpasses the long gestating development of The Three Stooges which is still searching for a solid cast. Speaking with Moviehole, Bobby Farrelly revealed a trip back to the well may be in order in the form of a sequel to the 1994 comedy Dumb & Dumber starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. The film would be the Farrelly brothers first sequel, and hopefully they'll just disregard Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
Here's what Bobby Farrelly had to say about the potential sequel:
“[Dumb and Dumber] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they’ll be able to quote lines from that – lines that I’ve long forgotten. If we could get those two guys back together, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels that might be a worthwhile sequel – and that ball is in motion. We’re starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we’ll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel.”
The original film was certainly a hilarious comedy that the Farrelly brothers have struggled to duplicate in the past decade, so maybe a return to these characters could be good for them. However, I'm only interested if Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels come back this time around. Having those two guys back together for some more stupid antics sounds like just what the doctor ordered. In addition, it'd be nice if Carrey could get another decent comedy off the ground. Hopefully the brothers Farrelly can get a sequel together sooner than later. What do you think?
