Another ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Sequel Blooms on the Horizon

By  · Published on February 28th, 2011

Like an antidote for all that stuffy Oscar nonsense, the Farrelly Brothers have let fly that they’re interested in revisiting the world of Dumb & Dumber. Maybe that will finally wake James Franco up.

Fortunately, in an interview with Movie Hole, The Farrellys not only claimed that conversations had been put in motion to make the sequel a reality, they added that they’d only want to do it with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back in the roles.

Thus, the Farrelly Brothers joined a long line of filmmakers who had a terrible idea and a great idea at the same time.

There’s no demand for this movie beyond a new-found love of outdated sequels floating around the studio system. However, if there’s a creative demand, and the Farrelly Brothers have a great story cooked up, why not support something like this? We’re nearly two decades away from the 1994 comedic triumph, it would be interesting to see the directors go back to their first film, and if they got the talent, it could be another strange trip into a world of idiots.

Speaking of which, The Farrelly Brothers will begin shooting their Three Stooges flick in a few months, which means definitive casting will be announced sooner rather than later. Check back with us to have your day made/ruined.

Any bets on whether Lauren Holly is available for this?
