Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are returning for a sequel to the Farrelly Brothers' 1994 hit film, Dumb and Dumber and now, as is the way with the internet, some details have leaked.

Albeit not many details, but of course we're running around the office in a highly delighted manner all the same.

We have discovered that. wait for it. *Drum roll...* The sequel will be set in the present day.

And that, our friends, is about the sum of things. For real.

But according to the Huffington Post, co-director Peter Farrelly said the sequel would be set '17 or 18 years later' and will reveal 'what they've been doing all those years'.

We can only guess that they've been as dumberer as this story.

Other plot details are still 'top secret' though we'll let you know if they spring a leak in the run-up to the shoot which starts in the autumn.
