The actors from the original 1994 Farrelly Brothers comedy will return as the pair of amicable but incredibly dimwitted buddies for a third picture, according to our sources
This appears to continue a recent pattern in which Jim Carrey has developed an unusual interest in the follow-ups to his films from decades earlier.
The events of 2014’s Dumb and Dumber To, which reunited Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels for the first time since the original, are where Dumb and Dumber 3 is likely to pick up.
Although the long-awaited sequel did not enjoy the same level of success as the original, it nevertheless grossed a respectable $169 million on a $50 million budget, which is reportedly enough to fund a third film.
Despite the lack of any sort of critical acclaim for the Dumb and Dumber franchise, Dumb and Dumber 3 has enough name recognition to be a feasible business venture.
Jim Carrey hinted at a possible retirement in 2022 for a brief moment, but it now seems like the actor is prepared to dive headfirst into a wave of new movies.
Despite the fact that the actor was infamously opposed to making sequels to his movies for years, we have previously reported that he is working with Universal Pictures on a follow-up to 2000’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas and is enthusiastic about making Brucifer, the previously planned follow-up to 2003’s Bruce Almighty.
