Dumb & Dumber 2 Plot Plan Outlined
Bobby Farrelly says it'll shoot in 2013

Dumb & Dumber 2 Plot Plan Outlined

Though chatter broke in June that Jim Carrey had decided to ditch the Dumb & Dumber sequel, largely because he was concerned the studio wasn’t supporting it, no one told Peter and Bobby Farrelly. The directors are still pushing full speed ahead on the film, and Bobby is now talking up the status and plot of the movie.

According to Farrelly, the real sticking point has been the leads’ schedules, especially since Jeff Daniels is now committed to shooting the second season of Aaron Sorkin’s show The Newsroom. "We were hoping to shoot it very soon - this fall - but that didn't come to pass because of scheduling conflicts. Jeff has a successful TV show over here now so we have to work around that. We are planning on shooting it this coming spring and hopefully it will be out by next fall. That's the plan and that will be our next movie, we've already written the script. We're very anxious to get back in business with those two guys."

So what can we expect from Lloyd Christmas (Carrey, assuming he’s still aboard) and Harry Dunne (Daniels) this time around? “I can tell you that there is no growth out of either one of them and it's 20 years later. The story revolves around the fact that one of them may have sired a child. They want to go and find the child because he's having a kidney problem and he wants to ask him for one of his kidneys."

From the sounds of it, we’ll be getting at least one stupid offspring in the mix. With a script co-written by Bennett Yellin, Sean Anders and John Morris, we may yet see this thing made.

RE: RE:
L: Sandros Didn' they already make a sequel? hey made a prequel with the characters as teenagers so it had different actors. This would have been an actual follow up to the Carrey/Daniels film. More

It's going to be strange to watch Daniels in a role like this after The Newsroom. More
