MUMBAI: And now the moment a few of you might have been waiting for: Here’s the first look of the stars on the set of Dumb And Dumber To: Jeff Daniels, hot off his Best Actor Emmy win on Sunday, and Jim Carrey, hot off - well, Kick-Ass 2 and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
The duo appears to have lapsed easily back into those lovable knuckleheads Harry and Lloyd, a mere two decades after New Line’s Dumb And Dumber grossed a quarter-billion dollars worldwide. Universal is shepherding the madness this time around. There is no word yet on a release date.
Dumb and Dumber was a 1994 American buddy comedy film starring Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels and Lauren Holly. It was written and directed by the Farrelly brothers, and was their directorial debut. The film followed the cross-country trek of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, two good-natured but incredibly moronic friends who were trying to return a briefcase full of money to its owner.
The film was released on 16 December 1994. While initial reception towards Dumb and Dumber was mixed, it was a commercial success and has developed a cult following in the years since. The success of Dumb and Dumber launched the career of the Farrelly brothers and helped advance Carrey's. The movie spawned an animated TV series, a 2003 prequel, and now this sequel, slated for a 2014 release.
