Dumb and Dumber 2 has been officially confirmed and will begin shooting in September.

Co-director Peter Farrelly has told ComingSoon.net: "It's the first sequel we’ve ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."

Dumb and Dumber already has a follow-up film, Dumb and Dumberer:When Harry Met Lloyd, but that didn't star either Carrey or Daniels. Which made it difficult to accept as a true part of the film's canon.

A 'proper' sequel was hinted at by Farrelly in February last year, while at a press junket in Sydney, he said: "[Dumb and Dumber] has run a bunch of times on TV in the states, and kids will come up and they'll be able to quote lines from that - lines that I've long forgotten,"

And Bobby Farrelly said (via Moviehole). "If we could get those two guys back together, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels that might be a worthwhile sequel - and that ball is in motion. We're starting to think about what those two dimwits would be doing twenty-years later in life, and hopefully we'll be able to come up with something worthy of a sequel."

Now Carrey is on board it signals not only a comeback for the actor who is working to revive his career after a bit of a lull, but also a momentous occasion for all Dumb and Dumber fans.
