Despite what Jim Carrey has said about not being a part of the Dumb and Dumber sequel because of Warner Bros. lack of interest in getting the film into production. But during the Television Critics Association (TCA) panel for The Newsroom, Jeff Daniels said some interesting things that seem to contradict what Carrey has said in the past.
Here’s the exact quote:
“Oh sure, even more so now. Jim wants to do it. I want to do it. The Farrellys 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.”
So everybody wants to work on the Dumb and Dumber sequel, it’s just a matter of getting the script right. Time does not seem to be of the essence since Daniels, who is scheduled to return to the set of The Newsroom in November, projects the sequel to begin production in May or June. So they are putting their time into working out some of the issues the script may have.
Daniels mentions that the business aspect will also have to be worked out, which was one of the reasons why Carrey stepped away from the project in the first place. But it looks as though Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema are heading in the right, because Daniels says Carrey was just venting out his frustration and that his co-star is back on board.
