Story highlights

Peter Farrelly dropped a Twitter-imploding bombshell in the middle of a "Three Stooges"

"We're getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September," the director said

Sean Anders and John Morris were hard at work on a script

(EW.com) —  

Peter and Bobby Farrelly have been quietly developing a sequel to “Dumb and Dumber” for awhile now.

Back in October, we heard that Sean Anders and John Morris – the comedy screenwriting duo behind “Hot Tub Time Machine” and “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” – were hard at work on a script. That was the last bit of news about the project…at least until this weekend, when Peter Farrelly dropped a Twitter-imploding bombshell in the middle of a “Three Stooges” press junket.

“We’re getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September,” the director told ComingSoon.net. “We’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”

Farrelly may have jumped the gun a little bit – a source close to the production tells EW that the film is “moving along, but it’s not greenlit yet.” It’s hard to imagine a green light is too far away, though – following last week’s announcement about the impending arrival of “Anchorman 2,” this feels like the moment for long-awaited comedy sequels. (Also: Is this a big day for Jeff Daniels, or what?)
