Swami, Slippy, Slappy, Swenson, September?
A few days ago we showed you video of Ron Burgundy announcing a sequel to Anchorman, and now, we have news that a Dumb & Dumber sequel (Dumb & Dumberer doesn't count) will begin filming in September.
If you are one of the few frequent readers of the Thigh, you may have noticed back in June when we shared the news that Jim Carrey would like to do a Dumb & Dumber sequel.
And today, Peter Farrelly, who directed Dumb & Dumber with his brother Bobby, told ComingSoon.Net that a sequel to the 1994 comedy will begin filming in September, with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels both starring in it, thankfully:
"We're getting set to shoot 'Dumb and Dumber 2' in September," he says. "It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."
"We did not do 'Dumb and Dumberer,'" he continues. "That was a studio thing. So we've always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, 'We've got to do this thing again.' He had just watched 'Dumb and Dumber' and he said, 'This is the perfect sequel. Let's do it.'"
As I said in the Anchorman post, Dumb & Dumber is easily my favorite movie ever, and Anchorman is #2. So you can definitely say that I'm pretty goddamn excited right now.
Now, all I have to say to Peter Farrelly and this sequel talk is, "Don't you go dyin' on me!"
