Bobby Farrelly reveals a Dumb and Dumber sequel could happen
"[Dumb and Dumber
] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they'll be able to quote lines from that - lines that I've long forgotten. If we could get those two guys back together, Jim Carrey
and Jeff Daniels
that might be a worthwhile sequel - and that ball is in motion. We're starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we'll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel."
The directors also spoke more about their new comedy project, The Three Stooges. While a cast still hasn't been locked in yet, Richard Jenkins will likely have a role in the movie, although it isn't clear what role that will be. Here's what Bobby Farrelly said about Richard Jenkins ' involvement.
"As we were starting [The Three Stooges
], my first question was 'Where we gonna put Richard
?' We do have a spot in mind for him... but a lot of it has to do with whether the guy's available and that sort of thing. I hope he is."
Bobby Farrelly also talked a bit about the tone of The Three Stooges.
"We'll probably be a lot less typically Farrelly
brothers stuff, we're going to be as true as we can to the spirit of The Three Stooges
- they weren't raunchy or outrageous, they were more about the slapstick, almost vaudeville-type humour. It'll probably be less us, more of them."
Dumb and Dumber was released December 16th, 1994 and stars Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Lauren Holly, Mike Starr, Karen Duffy, Charles Rocket, Victoria Rowell, Joe Baker. The film is directed by Peter Farrelly, Bobby Farrelly.
The Three Stooges was released April 13th, 2012 and stars Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, Chris Diamantopoulos, Jane Lynch, Sofía Vergara, Jennifer Hudson, Craig Bierko, Stephen Collins. The film is directed by Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly.
