A few days ago, it was reported that Warner Bros. has backed down on the Farrelly Brothers’ sequel to Dumb & Dumber, despite lead actors Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels agreeing to reprise their roles. Thankfully, the Farrelys have wasted little time in finding new backers.
The brothers have announced on Twitter that the sequel will now go into production with Red Granite’s backing, with Universal also coming on board as a domestic distributor. The new agreement is certainly welcome news for fans who have been longing for the project to show signs of life, after years of being in the pipeline.
There’s no word on whether Carrey and Daniels are still on board, though. But hopefully we will hear more about it in the coming weeks.
