Dumb & Dumber

Just over a week ago, Warner Brothers and New Line Cinema decided not to move forward with Dumb & Dumber To, the sequel to the 1994 comedy starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. Despite having directors Bobby & Peter Farrelly ready to go with the two leading men reprising their roles, the studio only saw a "limited upside" if they made the film, despite the fact that the comedy would only cost about $30 million to make. Well, that studio's loss is now hopefully a gain for Universal Pictures and Red Granite Pictures who have just picked up the sequel which could go into production early this fall for a 2014 release.

The Farrelly Brothers updated their Twitter with the news, "IT'S OFFICIAL: Dumb and Dumber To is going into production with @RedGranitePics and @UniversalPics!!!" Following that news, it was Borys Kit from THR who tweeted, "Sources say Dumb & Dumber To could start shooting by early fall and be released next year, which would be the 20th [anniversary] of the original." Despite the fact that Warner Bros. and New Line passed on the project, we knew some other studio would see the light and pick up this sequel. Now hopefully the Farrellys and Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels can deliver a solid sequel 20 years later. Happy?

    Nice, complete the trilogy, haha. Oh yeah, most people hate the prequel...but I DID see it when it first came out, when I was a kid....and I remember finding it funny, of course not as good as the original, though.

    Uptight studio executives, how could you not make this movie for $30 million? I wonder if they got gun shy for another Carrey movie after Burt Wonderstone tanked.
  • cobrazombie
    I thought I read a story the other day saying Jim Carrey was no longer locked in to this.
  • desispeed
    $30mil?? Are the leads working for free? All of the crap that Hollywood spits out yearly and they couldn't see a market for a $30mil sequel to one of the best comedies ever with the original leads? Something doesn't sound right....
