Currently in Australia doing “Hall Pass” promotion, filmmaker Bobby Farrelly tells Moviehole that a sequel to 1994’s “Dumb & Dumber” might be coming with original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprising their roles.
“[Dumb & 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.”
Bobby co-directed the original with his brother Peter, a film that grossed $247.3 million worldwide. The 2003 prequel “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” scored just $39.3 million worldwide. The Farrellys meanwhile are currently at work on their adaptation of “The Three Stooges” which begins shooting in two months.
