Universal Pictures Picks Up <i>Dumb and Dumber</i> Sequel

Just a week after Warner Bros. dropped the plans to make a sequel to the love-it-or-hate-it comedy, Dumb and Dumber, Deadline reports that Universal has picked up the rights and plans to make the sequel after all.

Dumb and Dumber To will feature the original duo of Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels playing Lloyd and Harry back on the road and inevitably getting themselves in the usual amount of hilarious trouble. The Farrelly Brothers are expected to direct again and adjusted the script from Sean Anders and John Morris (Hot Tub Time Machine).

The plans to shoot and release the film are currently being discussed. Daniels has HBO’s The Newsroom and Carrey is set to begin filming Loomis Fargo in the fall.
