Comedy giants Peter and Bobby Farrelly are finally ready to bring lovable morons Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne back to the silver screen in a sequel to the box office smash Dumb and Dumber.

Now that they have wrapped up work on the upcoming Three Stooges movie, the brothers will soon move forward with a long awaited second installment of their 1994 hit. They intend to bring back stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, and have already gotten original producers Charles B. Wessler, Brad Krevoy and Steve Stabler to sign on.

Sean Anders and John Morris, who have co-written Sex Drive and just co-directed the new Adam Sandler comedy I Hate You, Dad have been hired to write the script.

The original, made on a $16 million budget, pulled in almost $250 million worldwide and has enjoyed cult status ever since. New Line Cinemas, eager to capitalise on the success, pushed out Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd in 2003, a dreadful prequeal with lookalike actors. Luckily, a quality addition to the franchise seems imminent.
