Jim Carrey drops out of 'Dumb And Dumber' sequel
Jim Carrey, who was set to join Jeff Daniels in the follow-up to the hit 1994 movie 'Dumb And Dumber', has quit the project supposedly due to a fall-out with studios New Line and Warner Bros
The sequel had been tentatively titled ‘Dumb and Dumber To’. “I would have thought ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ was a no-brainer. After all, it’s implied in the title.”
According to Entertainment Tonight, sources have revealed that the actor “grew increasingly frustrated by New Line and Warner Brothers, who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project.”
The film had been scheduled to begin shooting in September and the future of the project is now said to be in doubt. Last summer the 50-year-old funnyman had admitted he was keen to make a ‘Dumb and Dumber’ sequel.
“We’re talking about maybe returning to some old characters that everyone has been asking about,” Carrey said. “There’s ‘Bruce Almighty’ and we’re talking about maybe another ‘Dumb and Dumber’,” he added.
