Dumb and Dumber To is finally in production and the finished product will reportedly include a short cameo from Oscar winning actress Jennifer Lawrence. It’s also been confirmed that 21 Jump Street star Rob Riggle will have a role.
On Friday, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Riggle will actually have two roles, since he’s playing twins. He’ll star as Travis, a handyman with an unstable brother named Captain Lippencott.
Later, THR confirmed that Lawrence, who will next be seen in American Hustle and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, will appear in a flashback sequence. In her cameo, she will be seen as the younger version of a character Kathleen Turner is playing.
In addition to Turner and Riggle, the rest of the supporting cast includes Rachel Melvin, Laurie Holden and Steve Tom.
Peter and Bobby Farrelly began filming their sequel to their 1994 hit in Atlanta this month. Jim Carrey recently shared a photo of himself and Jeff Daniels in character as the cameras started rolling. Jeff Daniels also announced, “We’re back!”
The Dumb And Dumber sequel has been in the works for years and has struggled to get off the ground. Over the summer, Warner Bros. had decided not to make it, but Red Granite and Universal swooped in to save the day. Red Granite is producing and Universal will distribute the film in the U.S.
Dumb and Dumber To is expected to hit theaters in Summer 2014, just in time for the first film’s 20th anniversary.
