Universal Snags Rights To 'Dumb And Dumber' Sequel
Even though the project has been in the works for years at Warner Bros. subsidary New Line Cinema, execs dropped it following the poor box office performance of Carrey's most recent film, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone."
The original cult comedy was released in 1994. It centers on stupid best friends Lloyd and Harry, who take a road trip to Aspen to return a briefcase full of cash to Mary Swanson, a beautiful woman who ends up being Lloyd's dream girl. The two get mixed up in a crime, and their wacky exploits lead the FBI straight to the crooks.
