Peter and Bobby Farrelly have been quietly developing a sequel to Dumb and Dumber for awhile now. Back in October, we heard that Sean Anders and John Morris — the comedy screenwriting duo behind Hot Tub Time Machine and Mr. Popper’s Penguins — were hard at work on a script. That was the last bit of news about the project…at least until this weekend, when Peter Farrelly dropped a Twitter-imploding bombshell in the middle of a Three Stooges press junket. “We’re getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September,” the director told ComingSoon.net. “We’ve got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back.”

Farrelly may have jumped the gun a little bit — a source close to the production tells EW that the film is “moving along, but it’s not greenlit yet.” It’s hard to imagine a green light is too far away, though — following last week’s announcement about the impending arrival of Anchorman 2, this feels like the moment for long-awaited comedy sequels. (Also: Is this a big day for Jeff Daniels, or what?)
