When does filming begin on Dumb and Dumber 2?
Carrey and Daniels Return as clueless idiots
Dumb and Dumber 2 has been announced and should start filming in September 2012 with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. Presumably, the film completely ignores the non-Farrelly prequel "Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd" which did not last long in the theaters. The Farrelly brothers may also direct the movie themselves. According to published sources on the internet (so it must be true) the sequel is set to be written by Sean Anders and John Morris, who wrote Hot Tub Time Machine and She's Out of My League. The release date of the film, and overall plot are under wraps, but the presumption is that the film would pick up in current time so we would be seeing what has happened to the characters since they passed up an opportunity on the side of a road in Nebraska in the last film back in 1994.
In their last adventure, Harry and Lloyd had gone from Rhode Island to Aspen Colorado, in a sheepdog-like van and on a moped, only to find that the briefcase they were delivering was full of cash, which they promptly squandered. Whether the new film will be based around a road trip scenario or rooted in a single place has not been announced, and how the characters are living today is also a fair question, since they could either have accidentally struck it rich or ended up in general poverty, which they did not seem to mind.
Notes and Special Information
Special note: Details of upcoming films are usually pretty murky since the final writing on the film can happen during, or even after, initial filming if the film is not up to par.
