Typically when it comes to cash-in sequels, it’s the studio that really wants to make the movie. But in the case of a sequel to Dumb and Dumber, Jim Carrey says that Warner Bros. and New Line aren’t very interested in the project, and so he has walked away from it. Read More »

Before we launch into the Andrew Garfield era of the Spider-Man movie franchise, Sony would really like it it you revisited the Tobey Maguire age one last time with its upcoming Blu-ray reissues of the Sam Raimi films. Also after the jump:
- Sony drops the first TV spot for Men in Black 3
- Blade 2‘s Blu-ray reissue will feature Guillermo Del Toro commentary
- Damon Lindelof explains why Prometheus isn’t exactly a prequel
- Dumb and Dumber 2 is happening, say the Farrelly Bros.
- James Bond will be sipping Heineken in Skyfall

Now that Peter and Bobby Farrelly are almost done with their long dreamed-of film reincarnation of The Three Stooges, they’re turning their thoughts to the future. The brothers have another TV show in the works, but for their next feature film it sounds like they might revive their 1994 hit Dumb and Dumber. Screenwriters have been hired to write a sequel that will hopefully reunite Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in their original roles. Read More »
That’s not the world Jim Carrey has on a yo-yo string in the photo above; it is our comedy-loving heart. *sob!* So does Jim Carrey (or his agent) think it’s time for him to go back to some established crowd-pleasing roles? It sounds that way. He’s got the kid-friendly Mr. Popper’s Penguins coming out shortly, but while promoting that film he said that he’s considering new films featuring characters that performed well in the past. Which is to say, we may see Carrey-equipped comedies to two of his films that have already made sequels without him: Dumb and Dumber and Bruce Almighty.

It hadn’t occurred to me that we might get another Dumb and Dumber, but now that the idea’s been floated, I’m finding it has the ring of inevitability about it. At the Sydney press junket for Hall Pass this weekend, Dumb and Dumber co-director Bob Farrelly announced that he and brother/co-director Peter Farrelly were planning a sequel to their 1994 hit. Dumb and Dumber is the movie that initially put the Farrelly Brothers on the map, kicking off a successful career that includes There’s Something About Mary, Shallow Hal and (my personal favorite of their films — yeah, yeah, judge all you want) Stuck on You, among others. Read Bob Farrelly’s quote after the jump.
