Dumb And Dumber 2 To Shoot In September With Jim Carrey


Dumb and Dumber 2 will begin shooting in September this year after the Farrelly Brothers confirmed they would be trying their hand at a sequel for the very first time. There has always been a demand for a second movie, especially after the poor Dumb and Dumberer prequel which starred neither Jim Carrey nor Jeff Daniels.

It was assumed that Carrey would take some serious persuading to work on the movie, considering his only sequels amount to Ace Ventura 2 and Batman Forever, though the comedy star has signed up, as has Daniels. Peter Farrelly confirmed the news to Coming Soon.net, saying, "We're getting set to shoot Dumb And Dumber 2 in September. It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back". After making it crystal clear that he had nothing to do with the aforementioned prequel, Farrelly explained, "We've always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, 'we've got to do this thing again.' He had just watched Dumb And Dumber and he said, 'This is the perfect sequel. Let's do it".

With a shoot set to get underway in the autumn, it's safe to expect Dumb and Dumber 2 at the end of 2013. Jim Carrey has a clear schedule for the majority of 2012, while Daniels recently completed shooting season one of Aaron Sorkin's drama 'The Newsroom'.
