Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne are dimwitted, socially awkward best friends who are as clueless and as dumb as they get. Lloyd is a chip-toothed, mischievous loser who can't hold a job, and Harry is his good-natured friend that happens to be just as incredibly moronic as Loyd. "Dumb and Dumber To" picks up 20 years after the first film, and the guys are now middle aged knuckle-heads. After one of them discovers that they need a kidney transplant, they set out on another road trip. This time, to find their long lost children in order to get a new kidney.
Starring in "Dumb and Dumber To" is two-time Golden Globe Award winner Jim Carrey reprising his role as Lloyd Christmas. Carrey recently completed shooting "Anchorman: The Legend Continues", and "Kick-Ass 2". He is also attached to star opposite Owen Wilson in the Relativity Media feature film "Loomis Fargo", and in Summit Entertainment's "Ricky Stanicky". Also starring in "Dumb and Dumber To" is four-time Golden Globe Award nominee Jeff Daniels returning as Harry Dunne. Daniels most recently starred in the films "Quad", and "Looper" appearing opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis. Laurie Holden, Kathleen Turner, and Rachel Melvin have also joined the cast.
Producers Guild of America Vision Award winning filmmakers Bobby and Peter Farrelly are directing "Dumb and Dumber To" from an original screenplay written by Sean Anders and John Morris. The Farrelly Brothers are very well known in the entertainment industry for directing romantic comedy films such as "Shallow Hal," "Me, Myself and Irene," "There's Something About Mary". They are also known for their epic buddy comedies such as "Dumb and Dumber," "Kingpin," "Stuck on You," "Hall Pass," and "The Three Stooges". They are attached to produce and direct "The Valet", a remake of Francis Veber's 2006 French comedy "La Doublure."
The Farrely Brothers are producing "Dumb and Dumber To" under the banner of their production company Conundrum Entertainment. Two-time Daytime Emmy Award nominee Bradley Thomas is producing along with Charles B. Wessler. Red Granite Pictures Vice Chairman Joey McFarland and CEO Riza Aziz are executive producers. Universal Pictures will release the film with a PG-13 rating in 2014.
"Dumb and Dumber To" was originally set up at Warner Bros. Pictures, however the studio put the project on turnaround. Universal Pictures is now set to distribute the film. The first movie was made on a $17 million budget and made over $279 million at the box office worldwide. "Dumb and Dumber" is said to have a $35 million budget.
