Production is officially underway on the sequel to Peter & Bobby Farrelly’s classic 1994 film Dumb and Dumber, and Jim Carrey has unveiled the first image from the set featuring himself alongside Jeff Daniels in character. Carrey posted the pic on his official WhoSay page with this caption: “How Roland Rolls comes out TODAY but it may be a little too sophisticated for Lloyd and Harry! Yep… THEY’RE BAAAAAACK!” “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.”Written by We’re The Millers scribes John Morris and Sean Anders, the sequel will feature Harry & Lloyd on yet another road trip as Harry attempts to find his illegitimate daughter who is in need of a kidney transplant.
Daniels, who is fresh off his Emmy win for The Newsroom, spoke to E! about the scariest thing and the best thing about getting to work on the film: “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. They best thing about it? I get to work with a comedic genius.”
Dumb and Dumber To is expected to hit theaters in 2014.
And here’s a new pic from Jeff Daniels’ twitter account: “We’re back”
