Eric Christian Olsen and Derek Richardson will star as the teenage incarnations of one of the big screen's dumbest duos in When Harry Met Lloyd: Dumb & Dumberer, for New Line Cinema.
The Hollywood Reporter says Olsen and Richardson will play adolescent versions of Harry and Lloyd, respectively, in the prequel to the 1994 blockbuster Dumb & Dumber, which starred Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey. Rounding out the comedy's cast will be Rachel Nichols, Eugene Levy, Mimi Rogers and Luis Guzman.
"Dumberer" follows Harry and Lloyd -- lovable best buddies who are big on heart but short on intellect -- as they meet and try to survive high school. Nichols plays a classmate and love interest, Levy plays their high school principal, Rogers plays Harry's mother, and Guzman has been cast as the school janitor who adopts Lloyd.

Actor/writer/comedian Rob Schneider has entered into a two-year first-look production deal with The Walt Disney Studios, it was announced today by Nina Jacobson, President of The Buena Vista Motion Pictures Group.
Schneider, who starred in Touchstone Pictures' box office hit Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, as well as The Animal and Big Daddy, heads up his company, From Out of Nowhere Productions, with his brother and producing partners John Schneider and Michael Chinich. The deal follows the December 13th release of Touchstone's highly anticipated comedy, The Hot Chick, which stars Schneider as a self-centered high-school girl who's trapped in the body of a 30-year-old man.
Schneider and From Out of Nowhere are currently in development on several projects. The first project up is Deuce Bigalow II, a sequel to the 1999 hit, with Tom Brady, co-writer and director of "Hot Chick," set to write and direct.
I just don't know about that Dumb and Dumberer thing...and for the Deuce sequel...I'll hold my feelings on that one.
