After years of rumours, claims and counter-claims, semi-announcements and disappointed retractions, it must be nice for the Farrelly brothers to start adding actors to their long-gestating Dumb & Dumber sequel, Dumb & Dumber To. Besides returning leads Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, Kathleen Turner will be aboard.

While Variety’s report doesn't mention plot or character details, the Farrellys hit Twitter to announce a few details on Turner's role.

Yes, an off-the-cuff reference in the original film will now be given flesh by the actress. As for the plot, nothing official has been announced, but rumours suggest that one of the boys needs a kidney transplant and tracks down a child he somehow managed to spawn to see if he can find a compatible donor.

Writing duties this time are being handled by Horrible Bosses contributors John Morris and Sean Anders, with Peter and Bobby Farrelly back behind the camera. Production is scheduled to start soon to have the film ready for next summer, which marks 20 years since the original.
