Los Angeles, June 20 (IANS) The sequel to 1994 film "Dumb and Dumber" is back on track and it will be filmed this summer.

Actors Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels will be seen in their roles as hapless heroes Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne in the sequel after the project was passed on to Universal Studios, reports contactmusic.com.

"Dumb and Dumber" directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly have also been confirmed to direct the follow-up, which was dropped by Warner Bros., who produced the original film.
