Jim Carrey took to Twitter to post the first on-set photo from the long awaited Dumb and Dumber sequel.
Reuniting with Jeff Daniels for the first time since the 1994 original, the pair are still rocking the same hairdos and more or less the same clothes they were wearing twenty years ago. The disheveled duo are a sight for sore eyes for us fans who never thought the sequel would get made following the disastrous prequel Dumb and Dumberer.
Jim Carrey recently released his first children’s book ‘How Roland Rolls” and he shared a picture on Twitter of the hapless pair attempting to read it. Jeff Daniels took home an Emmy Award for Best Actor last weekend for his role in HBO’s The Newsroom, the surprise win for Daniels comes hot on the heels of the season two finale and should secure the series for a third run. After winning his award Jeff Daniels was only to happy to let people know what he planned on doing next.
"We're going to party until dawn and then I'm going to hop on a plane to Atlanta and start shooting Dumb and Dumber To."
This is only the second time Jim Carrey has appeared in a sequel to one of his own films, the quickly assembled Ace Venture: When Nature Calls might have been a hit at the box office but it was enough to put Carrey off making sequels. In the years to come he would turn down big paychecks for follow-ups to Bruce Almighty and The Mask, both went forward with a Carrey-less sequel and they didn’t turn out so well. We won’t bring up the ugly business of Ace Venture Jr.
Dumb and Dumber To is a true reunion as directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly are also back, this time Harry and Lloyd embark on a road trip to find their estranged children in an attempt to get a new kidney. Joining the silliness are Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead) and Kathleen Turner making a rare movie appearance.
Dumb and Dumber To is due for release sometime in 2014.
