After a string of flops, the Farrelly Brothers‘ will return to one of their most popular films by finally going ahead with Dumb and Dumber To.  The sequel has had its ups and downs, especially with Jim Carrey’s frustration with Warner Bros. letting the project linger in development hell.  Universal eventually picked up the rights, Carrey and co-star Jeff Daniels will return, and on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Daniels said they’re scheduled to start filming in September.  As we previously reported, the movie is on track for a summer 2014 release, which would mark the 20th anniversary of the original’s release.  “I’ve seen the script. It’s hysterical,” Daniels told Fallon. “We’re middle-aged, we’re not pretending we aren’t. We’re middle-aged and we’re still that stupid.”  While I’m sure Carrey will be great, I’m particularly excited to see Daniels return to the moronic Harry Dunne, especially since his most recent roles have been more on the dramatic side.
