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 »
Do you want to see a couple generations of today’s stars — Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, and many more — spouting dirty jokes? Then Movie 43, masterminded by Peter “One Half of the Farrelly Brothers” Farrelly, probably has something for you. The red-band trailer has turned into an essential component in marketing the R-rated comedy, and when the comedy is promised as a collection of particularly dirty, foul-mouthed sketches, nothing but the red-band will do.
So here’s a first look at Movie 43, which features over 20 comedy sketches from nearly a dozen directors, and a cavalcade of stars. Some of the stuff is so in line with people’s previous work that it doesn’t even seem transgressive; I think one of the Scary Movies pooped on me, so seeing Anna Faris ask for the same thing is just turnabout/fair play. But seeing Halle Berry in wild mode might be great, and it’s always fun to see Kate Winslet go blue. (Check out Romance & Cigarettes if you’ve never seen it — not a great movie, but lord, does Winslet let go there.)
Be ready for some dirty, but not off-puttingly filthy jokes in the not safe for work trailer below. Read More »
There are two big batches of official images to pass along this afternoon. One is for Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger, and while the pics are technically new, they don’t show off much we haven’t seen. That is, Johnny Depp‘s Tonto looks intense and more than a bit weird; Armie Hammer looks heroic and idealistic, and their world is one well-known to followers of classic Westerns.
The other batch, from the comedy Movie 43, is a bit more unpredictable. The film is a comedy anthology, with 25 shorts from almost a dozen directors: Patrik Forsberg, Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk and Brett Ratner. The cast includes Kate Winslet, Anna Faris, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Terrence Howard, Jason Sudaekis, and Johnny Knoxville. The PR line on the film is that it is “not for the faint of heart,” which is fairly enticing. Some of the images below give soft clues about what to expect. Read More »
They may be dumb but they’re not stupid. Nearly 20 years after its release, the 1994 hit Dumb and Dumber still remains a fan favorite. Quotes are regularaly thrown around, scenes referenced and a no-brainer sequel has long been discussed. Earlier this year, it seemed like the Farrelly Brothers were getting closer than ever, but then Jim Carrey dropped out of the film. The brothers took to Twitter Tuesday to tell fans the film was still in the works, the script is almost done, and it has a title: Dumb and Dumber To. Read more after the jump. Read More »

The Three Stooges may not have quite been the box office smash that the Farrelly Brothers were hoping for, but the writer / director / producer pair are pressing onward with another new project. Fox has just acquired a holiday comedy spec script by Dan Ewen titled Dear Satan for the siblings. It’s unclear at this point if they’ll direct, but the goofy premise sounds like it could be right up their alley. Read more after the jump.
