It's Official: Dumb & Dumber 2 Begins Production in September

It was only a distant plan the last time we announced that the Farrelly Brothers might be considering a true sequel to the DUMB & DUMBER series (it's a series, thanks to DUMB & DUMBERER). But now it's official, folks: this past Sunday, at a press junket for THE THREE STOOGES,  they announced that not only are they committed to a sequel, but production can begin as soon as this September.
"We're getting set to shoot 'Dumb and Dumber 2' in September," he says. "It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."
But wait a second, what of DUMB & DUMBERER? Is that movie going to be left in the dust? Peter Farrelly addressed that movie:
"We did not do 'Dumb and Dumberer,'" he continues. "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.'"

I'm personally glad to hear the news that another one's coming, but at the same time, it has been over 17 years since the first one came out, and they want this new movie to be a true sequel. Either they will account for lost time, or they're just going to pick up right after and will have aged really fast.
