The sequel to Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s 1994 cult classic will hit theaters Nov. 14, 2014. Universal Pictures announced the release plans Monday.

How a guy with a clever Vine and Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence scored cameos in 'Dumb and Dumber To'

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.

Warner Bros. drops 'Dumb and Dumber' sequel

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

Peter Farrelly and producers Charles Wessler and John Penotti talk 'Movie 43' -- plus, the latest on the 'Dumb and Dumber' sequel

It’s being billed as “The Biggest Cast Ever Assembled For the Most Outrageous Comedy Ever Made.” Yes, those are seriously big words. But the fact is, it’s hard to think of any comedy that’s paired A-list star power with R-rated raunch and wrongness to quite the same degree as Movie 43, opening Friday—and if that sounds like hype, check out this NSFW red-band trailer. The cast of the film—which is made up of a series of interrelated shorts shot by 12 different directors, spearheaded by Peter Farrelly — reads like a who’s who of actors you’d never expect to see in a demented, envelope-pushing Kentucky Fried Movie-style comedy (Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Gerard Butler, Richard Gere, Uma Thurman, Terrence Howard, Dennis Quaid), along with some people who make at least a bit more sense (Emma Stone, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Faris, Justin Long, Johnny Knoxville).

For nearly four years, this oddball project has been shrouded in secrecy—so much so that even some of the actors involved may not be totally clear on what exactly it is. “We did it, and then cut to a year or something later they’re like, ‘Hey there’s a movie coming out,’ ” Schreiber told EW recently. “I’m like, ‘Uh-oh.’ But you know, you do these things. We’ll see. It was a goof.”

So what exactly is Movie 43? We got producer and director Peter Farrelly and producers Charles Wessler and John Penotti on the phone to explain. READ FULL STORY

The Farrelly Brothers finishing script for 'Dumb and Dumber To' -- and that isn't a typo

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
