This is so much better than The Three Stooges. Having wrapped that “dream project,” it looks like Peter and Bobby Farrelly are interested in working on a film that, oh, I don’t know, people might actually want to see?

Getting back to their glory days, the Farrellys have set a pair of writers to pen a Dumb and Dumber sequel. We will all gracefully bow our heads and tip our orange top hats forward to have a brief moment of silence for that other sequel, the abomination known as Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, 2003’s horrific prequel that starred Eric Christian Olsen and Derek Richardson as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne in their high school years. Shia LaBeouf also starred as another student (fun trivia!). The entire film centered on a pervasive lie that Lloyd, Harry, the ol’ Beefster, and a bunch of other kids were actually mentally challenged. Hilarious, right? Everyone loves making fun of mentally challenged kids! Ugh.

Forgetting that nightmare, Sean Anders and John Morris have been hired to pen the sequel. The hope is to bring back both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, which answers the “but when will this potential sequel take place?” question quite handily. Nowish!

Anders and Morris are turning into a pretty solid comedic duo, having written Sex Drive (which Anders directed, and which I secretly find totally hilarious), She’s Out of My League, Hot Tub Time Machine, and…Mr. Poppper’s Penguins (we’ll overlook that one and, hey, at least they have experience writing for Carrey!). They recently finished co-directing Adam Sandler in I Hate You Dad.

Now I’ll  put together what is actually the most annoying sound in the world and string together some Dumb and Dumber quotes to please fans and make you desperately want this sequel. “Kick his ass, Seabass!” “Whoa, Big Gulps, huh?” And my personal favorite, “MOCK!” Wait, did I do that wrong?
