It’s time to suit up, Harry and Lloyd-style.
Two new posters for Dumb and Dumber To have been unveiled, and the statement is simple: orange and blue tuxedos never go out of fashion.
Dumb and Dumber superfan Jennifer Lawrence may have scored herself a plum cameo alongside her comedy idols, but she and the rest of us are going to have to wait another year to finally see Dumb and Dumber To.
The sequel to Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s 1994 cult classic will hit theaters Nov. 14, 2014. Universal Pictures announced the release plans Monday.
Peter Farrelly knows how much people love Dumb and Dumber. Of course he’s a little more self-deprecating about it than that, and attributes it more to the fact that it’s just always on television. Still, the 1994 Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels comedy that he created with his brother Bobby was a cultural phenomenon. Has anyone been able to mention Big Gulps or John Denver in the past 20 years without thinking of Lloyd and Harry?
EW spoke to Peter Farrelly, currently shooting the sequel in Atlanta, about two super fans who scored cameos in his movie. One is a guy you’ve never heard of who happened to make a Vine that made the Farrellys laugh. The other is Oscar-winning actress and proclaimed Dumb and Dumber expert Jennifer Lawrence.
The Dumb and Dumber sequel has had its share of problems: Being dropped by Warner Bros. Being sued by everybody. But still it endures, like some kind of purely metaphorical decapitated bird with its head held on by scotch tape. And just like that decapitated bird, Dumb and Dumber To will amuse blind children everywhere — a fact made clear when returning star Jim Carrey posted a photo of himself getting back into character as Lloyd Christmas.

The sequel to Dumb and Dumber has hit a road block. The in-development follow-up to the hit 1994 comedy was in the works at New Line Cinema, but New Line’s parent company, Warner Bros., has dropped the project, EW confirmed Tuesday. THR first reported the news.
Bobby and Peter Farrelly — the writer-director brothers who created the original — are now searching for a new financier and distributor for Dumb and Dumber To (yes, that’s the title). Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are expected to return as short-on-smarts pair Lloyd and Harry. In the sequel, the two friends will go on a road trip to find Harry’s illegitimate daughter for a kidney transplant. READ FULL STORY
Could Dumb & Dumber‘s Lloyd and Harry finally be reuniting? Peter and Bobby Farrelly tweeted this week that they are nearly finished writing the script to Dumb and Dumber To, the official sequel to their 1994 hit that has a much better intentionally stupid title than 2003′s nominally unofficial prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
The Farrelly brothers had announced in April that they were going to begin filming the sequel this fall, with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels set to reprise their roles. But then Jim Carrey reportedly withdrew from the film in June out of frustration that the studios involved — Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema — weren’t moving the project forward. READ FULL STORY
