Whether or not it’s definitely on, considering Jim Carrey’s reluctance to get involved in something that the studio isn’t as invested in, is a more important question, but that hasn’t stopped Bobby Farrelly from revealing the plot of the on-again off-again on-again “Dumb & Dumber” sequel.

Digital Spy caught up with Farrelly – for the UK Release of “The Three Stooges” – and got the spoilerific details on the sequel.

What’s the current status of the Dumb and Dumber sequel?
“It’s definitely something we’ve been hoping for a long time. We always wanted to get the two original guys Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back together and see what they’re up to. Now it’s almost 20 years after the original and the other guys are in a point in their career where they had so much fun the first time that they’re willing to do it. We will make this movie.”

Are you still hoping to shoot next year?
“We were hoping to shoot it very soon – this fall – but that didn’t come to pass because of scheduling conflicts. Jeff has a successful TV show over here now so we have to work around that. We are planning on shooting it this coming spring and hopefully it will be out by next fall. That’s the plan and that will be our next movie, we’ve already written the script. We’re very anxious to get back in business with those two guys.”

Are you able to give us any hints about the storyline? Have Lloyd and Harry had a lucky break yet after missing that bikini bus?
“I can tell you that there is no growth out of either one of them and it’s 20 years later. What is funny about the original is that they’re grown men who are complete losers and when the studio came to us about a sequel, we were like, ‘Loads of kids are losers and they’re dumb.’ We didn’t see any value in the sequel so we backed out of it, but now these guys are in regular life and they’re still basically children at heart. The story revolves around the fact that one of them may have sired a child. They want to go and find the child because he’s having a kidney problem and he wants to ask him for one of his kidneys.”

The Farrelly Bros’ have a thing for spoiling the plot of their films – and sometimes years in advance. I mean, how long had we known the main beats of their “Three Stooges” movie? By the time the movie came out we felt like we’d already seen it, because Bobby and Peter had revealed the ending, middle and everything else about their long-gestating picture to the media… numerous times over. Let’s hope by the time “Dumb & Dumber 2″ comes out, it feels a bit fresher.
