At last, our long national nightmare is over: The Farrelly Brothers are officially hard at work on Dumb and Dumber 2, the most highly anticipated sequel in the history of anything ever ever ever. Oh, we kid. We'd like another Dumb and Dumber as much as the next folks, as long as it has nothing to do with Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd. Or that TV series we'd rather forget about but are including a clip of anyway.

Yes, that woman had a beaver inside of her. We're as baffled as you.

Anyhoo… Now that they've completed principle production on their dream project, that Three Stooges movie, The Farrelly Brothers are finally moving forward with Dumb and Dumber 2, from a screenplay by Sex Drive scribes Sean Anders and John Morris. Deadline reports that they fully intend to bring back both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels to their original roles, something Carrey himself hinted at back in June. Although they won't be writing this one, The Farrelly Brothers are fully expected to direct, at least.

Unlike most sequels, which run into problems because the protagonist's journey and personal development reached a logical conclusion at the end of the first film, Dumb and Dumber 2 might actually be worth getting excited about, since as long as one character is dumb, and the other dumber, they should be able to recapture the magic of the original blockbuster comedy.

CraveOnline will be back with more Dumb and Dumber 2 news after we finally locate that Mary Samsonite chick.
