In June, Jim Carrey dropped out of a sequel to 1994's Dumb and Dumber, claiming that he was "frustrated" at the lackluster commitment from studios New Line and Warner Bros. "I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title," Carrey explained at the time.
For those that were excited at the prospect of a sequel and then bummed at Carrey's exit, there's good news: the sequel may not be dead after all. During a recent panel for the Television Critics Association, Jeff Daniels told Crave Online that there's still hope that Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne could step in front of cameras again next year.
why did carrey leave? >> Posted 08.07.12 by Ryan
Jim wants to do it. I want to do it. The Farrellys [writer-directors Peter and Bobby] want to do it. They want to rewrite the script a little bit and they aren’t trying to jam it in before I have to go back and do Newsroom in November. So they’re going, "Why don’t we just do it right? Let’s get everybody organized to go next May or June." If everything works out on the business side, that’s what we’ll do but I think there’s more hope than ever.
