Although it was rumored for quite some time, it looked the Farrellys were actually going to return to their break-out hit Dumb and Dumber with a sequel, following up The Three Stooges earlier this year. But this summer a major roadblock came as one-half of the duo, Jim Carrey, said he was leaving the project due to problems with lack of studio interest on the film.
Things are looking to get back on track though, as The Newsroom star Jeff Daniels told WENN that “Jim wants to do it, I want to do it, the Farrellys want to do it.” But it looks production will miss the rumored fall production start, as Daniels said the script is still being worked on and they were “almost able to get it done” by this year, but they are “all hoping that it’ll come together early next year.”
With a string of duds from the directing duo, I remain hesitant on this follow-up. But if there’s anything that could get them to return to former comedic glory it could be the iconic characters of Harry and Lloyd and the original actors returning. I just hope this one doesn’t become another Ghostbusters 3, or any other return to a franchise that like won’t happen, yet be talked about for years and years.

I’m not sure I’d think much about diving into the work of Les Blank if only given a plot synopsis. His films, including a plethora now available in a stunningly thorough Criterion set, take on the esoteric sides of America, from bluegrass musicians to the wonders of polka to the taste of Creole cooking. These […]
