'Dumb And Dumber' Sequel? Farrelly Brothers Say It's Possible

Dumb And Dumber

So you're saying there's a chance?

Yep!

Promoting their new gross-out, relationship comedy "Hall Pass," the Farrelly brothers admitted at a press junket in Sydney that they were in the nascent stages of developing a true sequel for their mid-90's classic, "Dumb and Dumber".

"[Dumb and 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," Bobby Farrelly said (via Moviehole). "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."

Of course, there was the prequel film "Dumb and Dumberer," but that didn't star either Carrey or Daniels. Which made it difficult to accept as a true part of the film's canon.

This spring, the Farrellys will film their long-awaited "Three Stooges" adaptation, which Carrey was once in fact attached to doing.

This would mark a new chapter in the continuing comeback of the Farrellys, who stumbled in the 2000s after 90's blockbuster hits such as "Dumb and Dumber" and "There's Something About Mary". It'd be a big move for Carrey, too, who is working to revive his career after a bit of a lull; he got strong reviews for his performance in "I Love You Phillip Morris," and recently guest hosted "Saturday Night Live".
