Warner Bros. drops 'Dumb and Dumber' sequel

Peter and Bobby Farrelly, who most recently directed "The Three Stooges," will return to direct the sequel. The Farrelly brothers did a rewrite on the original script which was penned by Sean Anders and John Morris, who co-wrote "Hot Tub Time Machine" and "She's Out of My League."
