We’ve been hearing talk of a sequel to Dumb and Dumber, and it seems that will finally happen. Coming Soon interviewed Directors Bobby and Peter Farelly, who revealed that production on the sequel will begin this Fall. Not only that, but both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are returning!

Of course, some are skeptical after the last time studio tried to follow-up the classic film with a prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd. And it’s safe to say that wasn’t met well at all. But Peter Farrelly stresses this won’t be a repeat of that. That was a studio thing. So 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,” he said.
