Dumb And Dumber 2 Versus Anchorman 2: Which Will Be Better?

Subscribe To:

Peter Farrelly (one half of the directorial partnership, the Farrelly brothers) has announced that filming for Dumb and Dumber 2 will commence in September 2012. The sequel to the 1994 film, starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels will see the pair reprising their original roles, with the Farrelly Brothers back at the helm as directors.

They will no doubt be keen not to confuse it with the far less successful prequel Dumber and Dumberer, which did not star the original cast members, nor the same directorial team. Farrelly stressed, in his announcement "We [the Farrelly brothers] did not do 'Dumb and Dumberer.' That was a studio thing." The project has not been given the green light just yet, according to today's Forbes report (April 3, 2012) but Sean Anders and John Morris - the writing team behind Hot Tub Time MAChine and Mr Popper's Penguins - are said to be on board with the movie.

The announcement follows on from last week's news that Will Ferrell plans to reprise his role as Ron Burgundy in an Anchorman sequel. With excited movie fans creating something of a furore online over that news, the people behind the Dumb and Dumber sequel will no doubt be hoping they can cling to the coat-tails of Anchorman's popularity to ensure that their own project gets the go-ahead, too.
