Most of us get wiser with age, or at least we’d like to think we do. It’d be downright depressing if we were all as stupid now as we were ten or fifteen or twenty years ago. But trust Dumb and Dumber‘s Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) to be the exceptions.
Dumb and Dumber To sees the famously moronic duo reunited and setting out for another road trip, a full two decades after the first film. Or at least trying to set out on a road trip. The BFFs may be getting nowhere fast, if the first official still is any indication. Check it out after the jump.

Briefly: Two franchises just dated their upcoming sequels. First up, The Farrelly Brothers‘ Dumb and Dumber To will be released November 14, 2014. It’s the sequel to the hit 1994 film starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. The Farrellys once again write and direct.
Second, Filmdistrict just dated Insidious: Chapter 3 for release April 3, 2015. Yes, another sequel in 2015. While James Wan, who directed the first two films, won’t return, writer Leigh Whannell is again penning this installment. Whannell (above left) wrote the first two films and co-starred in them as well. There’s no word on a director, but the second film pretty obviously set up a story line. [ERC]

The proposed sequel to Dumb and Dumber — the real sequel, made by Bobby and Peter Farrelly and starring Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey — has been an on-again off-again thing for a little while. But now, after being dumped by New Line and Warner Bros. and picked up by Universal, the film is set to go.
Last night, Jimmy Fallon had Jeff Daniels as a guest on Late Night, and asked about the sequel. The actor said he and Carrey are set, as are the Farrellys, and while he is a bit cautious (“I’ll believe it’s happening when I’m actually there staring at Jim Carrey”) he admits that Dumb and Dumber To is scheduled to shoot in September for a 2014 release.

Just when you thought Dumb and Dumber To was almost here, turns out it’s going to have to go and totally redeem itself. The Peter and Bobby Farrelly-directed sequel, which would have brought stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back to the roles they originated in the 1994 Dumb and Dumber, has reportedly been dropped by Warner Bros. It will now be shopped around to other suitors.

Bobby and Peter Farrelly made their directorial debuts, and cemented their comic careers, with the 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber, starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as a couple of well-meaning but doltish best friends who embark on a disastrous road trip from Providence to Aspen.
The film was a smash, thanks in part to the new popularity of Jim Carrey, and in the past couple years the vague prospect of a legit sequel by the Farrelly Brothers has turned into a script and tentative plans to shoot. Originally announced to roll film in September of last year, Dumb and Dumber To has been pushed back, but will still go on, according to Peter Farrelly. Read More »
