The sequel to Dumb and Dumber is really happening. We know this because we finally have some set photos of Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels acting as stupid as ever as BFFs Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, on the set of the long-awaited comedy sequel. Check them out below.
The photos, which were tweeted by Carrey, Daniels and Dumber and Dumber To Official, show both lead actors in character. Carrey and Daniels do look a lot older than they did in 1994, but the goofiness is still all there (just look at those ridiculous haircuts).
In the sequel, Harry and Lloyd will be middle-aged. The film will follow them as they try to track down one of their children. Kathleen Turner will return to play the part of Fraida Felcher (the “babe who worked for the tractor company”).
After his big Best Actor win at the Emmy Awards on Sunday night, Daniels told E! some new information about the forthcoming sequel. The site asked the actor about the scariest thing and the best thing about getting to work on the comedy, to which Daniels replied:
“The scariest thing? There are some things that we’re going to do in Dumb and Dumber To that make the toilet scene [in the original] seem lame. Pales in comparison and I can’t divulge what, but just that they’ve topped it. The best thing about it? I get to work with a comedic genius.”
It’s easy to poke fun at this sequel because it’s taken forever to make, plus add to that all the woes it’s been through. It’s sort of staggering how it’s finally getting made. Regardless, both actors seem to be fully committed to their roles and supportive of the project as a whole, and that gets us a excited.
There’s no official release date on Dumb and Dumber To yet, but word around the web is that it might hit theaters in 2014, 20 years after the original.
