Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels Sign for 'Dumb and Dumber 2'!
Stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are dumbing down again for, duh, “Dumb and Dumber 2.”
It's been nearly 20 years since Lloyd, Harry and the “shaggin' wagon,” but Universal Pictures is ready to give it a go, according to Deadline Hollywood.
The sequel, which takes place 20 years after the first, will follow the dimwitted misfits as they try to find one of their long lost children in hopes of getting a new kidney.
Daniels told CBS News that the script is “painfully funny,” adding, “We're middle-aged and still that stupid. Our IQ has not gone up one point combined … so it's a frightening thing. You're gonna see the two of us standing there trying to put thoughts together and you want to put underneath, 'Kids don't do this at home.' It's that stupid.”
Apparently, Warner Brothers has stepped away from the project, fittingly called “Dumb and Dumber To,' but will retain a stake in the film. Brothers Peter and Bobby Farrelly will return to direct their rewrite of a script by Sean Anders and John Morris.
