So we reported some time ago that there could be a chance Dumber and Dumber 2 could come along, and although it's pretty much in the same state as before, it looks to be more promising with everyone on board except New Line and Warner Bros. However, Daniels' positivity brings some hope to the project:
“Jim wants to do it. I want to do it. The Farrellys want to do it. They want to rewrite the script a little bit and they aren’t trying to jam it in before I have to go back and do ‘Newsroom’ in November. So they’re going, ‘Why don’t we just do it right? Let’s get everybody organized to go next May or June.’ If everything works out on the business side, that’s what we’ll do but I think there’s more hope than ever.”
If anyone was going to do a D&D sequel, it'd only make send for the Farellys to do it. Hell, even Stuck on You was a great film.
Anyway, Daniels goes on to say:
"I think Jim just got frustrated and I completely got it. I was frustrated too. We thought it was in pretty good shape. The studio and others wanted some more work done it. The Farrellys wanted more work done on it so they got working on it and I think last week they decided to push the shooting of it to next year, possibly because I wasn’t going to move ‘The Newsroom.’”
Bottom line, it could begin to shoot next Spring. Do you think Dumb and Dumber could use a sequel? Would it work? What would a film with Harry and Lloyd in their 50s be like? leave your thoughts below!
