Dumb and Dumber 2!…

Yes, you read correct. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have signed on for a sequel of the classic Dumb and Dumber. It’s been many years in discussions and now it’s finally official, so disregard Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd –– the supposed sequel from 2003.

Peter and Bobby Farrelly are set to direct again and had this to say about past and future Dumb and Dumber films:

“We did not do ‘Dumb and Dumberer,'” Farrelly said. “That was a studio thing. So we’ve always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, ‘We’ve got to do this thing again.’ He had just watched ‘Dumb and Dumber’ and he said, ‘This is the perfect sequel. Let’s do it.'”

Now I’m intrigued! What do you think the story will be about?

Whitney Houston Still Sparkles…

Whitney Houston’s final film’s trailer has been released. It’s called Sparkle and marked her first appearance on the screen after sixteen years. It’s her first starring role since 1996’s The Preacher’s Wife, which she co-starred in with Denzel Washington.

Set in the 60’s, Houston plays the mother to Jordan Sparks (Sparkle Williams) –– one of three singing sisters from Detroit who is struggling with fame.

Houston’s mothering role is eerie, given her own struggles with fame and her recent death. She is seen in the trailer warning her kids of fame’s dangers.

Check out the Sparkle trailer below:

Ready To Get Freaked Out?….

Eduardo Sanchez basically defined “found footage” and POV horror films 13 years ago when he co-directed The Blair Witch Project. Now he’s back, revisiting the horror genre with a new film called Lovely Molly.

The film screened at both this year’s SXSW and Toronto International Film Festival to decent reviews. But we will have to wait until it’s wide release on May 18th.

Check out the trailer below…WARNING: You may get the chills and get relatively freaked out. Enjoy!

  1. Love everything about this post! Big fan of Dumb & Dumber Actors. I actually met Jeff Daniels on the set of the movie “Love Hurts.” He is such a cool guy. Whitney Houston. Yes. Very thrilled to see her in her finale role. New horror thrill? I am always ready for those. Super great post, Film Funds! Keep up the good work! :o)
