The Marietta Square in Marietta, Georgia stood in for El Paso, Texas on Monday as onlookers gathered hoping to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood stars taking the historic park to the big screen.
Actors Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels took to the Square on Monday to film scenes for “Dumb and Dumber To” involving a Zamboni that closed the intersection of West Park Square and South Park Square. For the rest of the day, crew and actors filmed in Glover Park.
Filming will continue through today, but no roads are scheduled to be closed.
“Dumb and Dumber To” is the sequel to the 1994 “Dumb and Dumber” film that tells the story of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, two well-meaning but foolish friends from Providence, Rhode Island.
City officials don’t yet have an estimate on how much Marietta will make off the filming, said Lindsey Thompson, spokeswoman for Marietta.
The production company will pay the city about $1,500 a day for use of the Square. That doesn’t include the cost it will be charged for using police officers who closed the park and surrounding roads and other city services.
