Ever since ComingSoon.net first broke the news that Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were in discussions with Bobby and Peter Farrelly to develop a sequel to their 1994 film Dumb & Dumber, fans have been anxious to see the further adventures of Harry and Lloyd hit the big screen. Today, Digital Spy spoke with Bobby Farrelly who revealed a bit about the film’s plot.
“I can tell you that there is no growth out of either one of them and it’s 20 years later… these guys are in regular life and they’re still basically children at heart,” he said. “The story revolves around the fact that one of them may have sired a child. They want to go and find the child because he’s having a kidney problem and he wants to ask him for one of his kidneys.”
The original Dumb & Dumber represented one of Carrey’s breakout comedy roles. The film was given a prequel in 2003 with Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, but without the creative involvement of the Farrellys.
Due to Daniels’ commitment to HBO’s “The Newsroom,” the plan is for the Dumb & Dumber sequel to shoot in the spring of 2013.
