|Peter announced an online contest: Send a Vine video to @farrellybros with the hashtag #DumbTo with their most entertaining Dumb and Dumber reference and they will choose a winner to be in the movie and say a line in the movie.|
Confirmed to return for the sequel includes: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, and even Harland Williams who played the pee-drinking cop in the first film. Farrelly said that blind kid will return in the movie as a man, but this might have been a joke.
The movie takes place in Rhode Island, but they plan to shoot the film in Atlanta Georgia for the state’s tax breaks. They hope to start shooting in August 2013. “As we speak I have guys on the ground [working] in Atlanta” Georgia’s tax breaks are 30% while Massachusetts tax breaks are 25%. Peter gave the example that a a $50 million movie will cost $34 million in Atlanta. The earlier report had claimed the budget would be in the low $30 millions, likely after tax breaks.
Dumb and Dumber To will be released Summer 2014: “It will be exactly 20 years when it comes out,” said Farrelly. The original film was released on December 16th 1994.

The sequel, officially titled Dumb And Dumber To, has been in the works since April 2012. However, original backers Warners Bros passed on the project last week (June 11), forcing the Farrelly Brothers to shop it around to new film studios.
According to The Hollywood Reporter's sources, shooting could now take place this summer for a 2014 release: the 20th anniversary of the original film. Both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are on board to reprise their roles.
Written and directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, the original Dumb And Dumber came out in 1994 and starred Carrey and Daniels as dimwitted friends on a road trip. A prequel called Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd followed in 2003, but it did not feature the original stars or any involvement from the Farrelly Brothers.
