A sequel to Dumb and Dumber could be the next project for the Farrelly Brothers

There are a few films that I could watch over and over again. One of them is DUMB AND DUMBER. When the prequel, DUMB AND DUMBERER came out I immediately decided to pass. I really didn't need to know the backstory of Harry and Lloyd. All I needed to know I got from the first film-- they're both dumbasses. It's also a film that I get something new out of every single time I watch. All I know is seeing that A CURRENT AFFAIR opening makes me feel old.

Would a sequel interest me? I would be lying if I said it didn't. What would Harry and Lloyd be up to now? Are they still living together? Did they really try to get "I Got Worms" off the ground? Okay, so obviously I'm curious. There's been talk of a sequel from Peter and Bobby Farrelly. Both of them really want to do it but putting something like that together isn't as easy as it may sound. Jim Carrey isn't one to do sequels but recently during press for MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS said this, "We're talking about maybe returning to some old characters that everyone has been asking about. There's 'Bruce Almighty,' and we're talking about maybe another 'Dumb and Dumber.'" I think that if Carrey got on board then Daniels would too.

Here's the update: The Farrelly brothers are hoping to move forward with Carrey and Daniels back in their original roles since completing THE THREE STOOGES. Sean Anders and John Morris (SEX DRIVE) have been hired to pen the script with the brothers Farrelly directing.

Messing with pure classic characters never seems to work. How do you live up to that legend??? Not sure what to root for here... I love that film so much.

Cautiously optimistic.

Interesting how Carrey stayed away from sequels for years (turning down Dumb and Dumber 2, Bruce Almighty 2, Ace Ventura 3, etc., etc., etc.) but now that his career is in a relative nosedive he's open to coming back. I kinda respected him for not making sequels - when are comedy sequels ever as good as the originals? - but I have to admit enough time has passed that I'd love to catch up with these characters again. I just hope the Farrellys don't *beep* it up, because their track record lately

Also, Carrey said Bruce Almighty 2 is in the works as well (makes sense since it was one of his biggest moneymakers). That one seems largely unnecessary to me. Carrell is arguably more bankable than Carrey now given his recent box office track record, and even he couldn't keep Evan Almighty afloat.

Yeah I called her up. She gave me a bunch of crap about me not listening to her, or something. I don't know, I wasn't really paying attention.

I'm wary that the Farrelly's aren't writing it themselves, but I'm open to this sequel.

I can't decide if having someone else write the script is a good idea or not. It'd would be nice considering they wrote the original. However, on the other hand maybe it is a good thing seeing as how a majority of the more recent films have been stinkers.

Either way (as long as Carrey and Daniels are back), I am down for a new Dumb and Dumber. Bruce Almighty 2 doesn't sound too interesting, I'd rather see Ace Ventura 3 or The Mask 2.

i'm down. i'd rather see the farrellys write too, like they did the first, but sex drive is pretty funny.
