It is really sad to see a promising comedy fall apart, especially if it’s a comedy that everyone has been waiting for. Let’s pretend for a moment like the Dumb and Dumber prequel Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd never happened. Or if you are of the group that never watched it in the first place, then you need not worry. But if you did, pretend it never happened. Everyone has been waiting for a true follow-up to Dumb and Dumber, and for a moment it looked like it was going to happen.
Warner Brothers was setting up a sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, which would have the original stars of the film Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels come back and reprise their respective roles. Now it appears that Carry is unhappy with WB’s unenthusiastic interest for the sequel, and as a result, he has pulled himself out of the project.
According to ETOnline, Carrey said, “I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it’s implied in the title.”
While this doesn’t mean the project is dead, it just might as well be now that Carrey is out of the picture. A bigger question is, how come WB wasn’t expressing any enthusiasm for the film? It’s hard to believe WB would pursue the project any further now that Carrey is gone. The film was originally set up to be another project for The Farrelly Brothers. No word yet if the filmmaking duo will continue to move forward without Carrey.
