Universal picks up Dumb and Dumber To and locks down Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, and The Farrelly Brothers

Jun. 18, 2013by: Niki Stephens

I like it. I like it a lot!

Warner Bros. loss is Universal's gain. The studio has not only picked up DUMB AND DUMBER TO, but has also locked down Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, and the Farrelly brothers. Red Granite stepped up financially offering up $35 million going to the budget and international sales.

What's even better? The movie will go into production very quickly. One usually might be scared of that, however, the passion to make a sequel is there. The characters of Harry and Lloyd are gold, and it will be no problem for Carrey and Daniels to get back into the swing of things. The reason for the rush has to do with scheduling. Daniels has to get back to THE NEWSROOM, and Carrey has a bank heist comedy directed by Jared Hess to do co-starring Owen Wilson.

The first draft of the script was written by Sean Anders and John Morris with a rewrite from the Farrelly brothers. All we know about the plot is that Harry and Lloyd will go on another road trip.

I want to spam the shit out this article with gifs, but instead will only leave you with one.

I hope they can make it work. We must not forget: the first one was 20 years ago. Daniels and Carrey are now both well in their fifties and it that can make a huge difference for characters who basically behave like big, studpid toddlers. But I keep my fingers crossed and having the original cast and directors back is certainly a big plus here.

I also like to see Jeff Daniels in anything. One of the most underappreciated actors of his genereation!

Way to go, Universal! I'm still shocked WB passed up the opportunity to make a sequel, especially for such a modest price.

He actually expressed his excitement to do the sequel in an interview with Craveonline and was disappointed that the studios weren't green lighting the movie.

I actually think Jeff Daniels stole Dumb and Dumber from Carrey. I thought he was the funnier of the two.

While I don't feel that Daniels stole the show, I always thought he was fantastic, he more than held his own opposite Carrey who was beyond huge at that point.

Lloyd: The first time I set eyes on Mary Swanson, I just got that old fashioned romantic feeling where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling, Lloyd.
