It seems that in spite of Warner Bros. getting cold feet and ultimately passing on “Dumb & Dumber To,” star Jeff Daniels has revealed that the wheels are still turning and that shooting is actually set to begin on September 2013, ensuring that it’s still on track for a summer 2014 release (the original film’s 20th anniversary).
“I’ve seen the script. It’s hysterical,” said Daniels in an interview with Jimmy Fallon. “We’re middle-aged, we’re not pretending we aren’t. We’re middle-aged and we’re still that stupid.”
However, Daniels has pointed out that he won’t believe it’s happening until he’s finally opposite co-star Jim Carrey on set, which shouldn’t be a problem because Carrey is also set to return, with the Farrellys also returning behind the camera.
