Dumb And Dumber sequel gets backers

Jim Carrey's Dumb And Dumber sequel is going ahead

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are set to reunite for the Dumb And Dumber sequel after the film was picked up by Universal Pictures.

Directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly confirmed that the long-awaited follow-up to the 1994 comedy will definitely be going ahead, with Red Granite set to produce with distributor Universal.

"IT"S OFFICIAL: Dumb and Dumber To is going into production with @RedGranitePics and @UniversalPics!!! #DumbTo," Peter tweeted.

There had previously been doubts about the sequel after it was dropped by Warner Bros.

Both stars have already agreed to reprise their roles as socially awkward best friends Lloyd Christmas (Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Daniels) in the second instalment, which is expected to start shooting in the autumn in time for a 2014 release.

Jim told E! News in March: "I'm ready. There is a script. It's fun. Jeff and I are raring to go."

The first film grossed nearly 250 million dollars worldwide, but the 2003 prequel Dumb And Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd, which featured none of the original stars or directors, made less than 40 million dollars.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

You'll have to make an emotional appeal to your boss. Unless things change, you might have to find another job. You're a very tolerant person, but you can't handle toxic behaviour. A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
