Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are definitely getting Dumb and Dumber again.
USA TODAY confirms that Universal Studios has acquired the rights for Dumb and Dumber To, the sequel to the 1994 comedy, after Warner Bros. walked away from it earlier this year.
The follow-up will follow the two central idiots, Lloyd Christmas (Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Daniels) on a road trip directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly. The brothers’ career was launched when the original Dumb and Dumber was a hit, and it began a string of popular Farrelly comedies such as Kingpin (1996) and There’s Something About Mary (1998).
Harry and Lloyd were also the subjects of a short-lived 1995 cartoon and the critically panned 2003 prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
