Their movie “Dumb & Dumber” was a huge success in the 1990’s, and now it looks like Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels plan to be part of the sequel “Dumb and Dumber To.”

Jeff finally confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday (June 19) that production is underway for the next adventure of Lloyd and Harry. The sequel is directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly.

“Jim [Carey] has been against all sequel, and you know, understandably so,” Mr. Daniels explained. “But he turned 50 and that will mellow you out, and suddenly he’s going, ‘Let’s have some fun… Come on,’ and we’re going, ‘Great.’”

Jeff added, “And so the Farrellys said, ‘This isn’t about money grab. Let’s really write a great second movie that takes the original and then blows it up even further, and so I think they did that.”

Jim Carey has officially signed on to the sequel, which takes place 20 years after their first adventure.
