Lloyd and Harry are officially back.
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are reprising their famous duo in Dumb and Dumber To, the sequel to the 1994 original film. On Twitter, Carrey shared a picture of his mouth in character, complete with the signature chipped-tooth smile. He captioned it, “GESS HUUZ BAK BICHEZ?”
Universal Studios acquired the rights for the sequel after Warner Bros. walked away from it earlier this year. The sequel will follow Lloyd and Harry on a roadtrip, and brothers Peter and Bob Farrelly once again direct.
Jeff Daniels, who has been busy playing serious anchorman Will McAvoy on HBO’s The Newsroom, told the Associated Press in June that Carrey had been against all sequels, not wanting to repeat himself. But ultimately, Daniels said, Carrey was the one who called up the Farrelly brothers to get this project going.
“He turned 50, and that’ll mellow you out, and suddenly he’s going, ‘Let’s have some fun.’ … And we’re going, ‘Great!’” Daniels said. “And the Farrellys said, ‘This isn’t a money grab let’s really write a great second movie that takes the original and then blows it up even further.’ And I think they did that.”
