Bobby Farrelly (Hall Pass) revealed to Moviehole that a sequel to Dumb & Dumber may be possible with 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.”
The 1994 original, which Bobby co-directed with his brother Peter, was made for just $17 million and grossed $247.3 million worldwide. A prequel, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, was released in 2003 and earned just $39.3 million worldwide.
First up for the Farrelly brothers, however, is their adaptation of The Three Stooges, which begins filming in two months according to Bobby.
He told the site that the movie will “probably be a lot less typically Farrelly brothers stuff, we’re going to be as true as we can to the spirit of The Three Stooges they weren’t raunchy or outrageous, they were more about the slapstick, almost vaudeville-type humour. It’ll probably be less us, more of them.”
