HOLLYWOOD – Following the successful reuniting of Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey vehicle Dumb and Dumber To comes the news that work has already started on a third film, provisionally entitled Dumb and Dumber 5.
We spoke to Dumb and Dumber star Jim Carrey about the new film:
While we were making the new film we were having so much fun me and Jeff and we said to the Farrelly brothers hell we’d love to do another. And they said they couldn’t because they wanted to do a sequel to their Three Stooges movie because it was such a huge hit and we said that wasn’t a huge hit, and they said no they’d been joking. That’s the kind of fun we were having!
So Dumb and Dumber 5 will be…
The thing is people will say Dumb and Dumber 5, but surely this is the third film, and it is, but we’re using 5 because they’re so darned stupid that they can’t count! Do you get it? Yeah.
So how is it working with…
No, I mean the thing is there’s the first film then this second one and then the next one should be called Dumb and Dumber 3 but it is actually Dumb and Dumber 5.
Are you at all worried about being typecast as…
Of course, we were kicked around Dumb and Dumber 4 but then someone said, what about that shitty film that they tried to pass off Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd? And we all went yeah and so Pete and Bobby got together for about an hour and half and they came back with Dumb and Dumber 5 and the room burst into spontaneous applause. It was… genius.
Dumb and Dumber 5 will be released in 2015.
