Jim Carrey: OUT of Dumb and Dumber 2

by at . Comments

Jim Carrey is now officially saying no to the long-awaited sequel to his 1994 smash hit Dumb and Dumber, months after apparently agreeing to the film.

Is this move smart, dumb or dumber from a business standpoint?

Time will tell, but sources say Carrey wasn't feeling the love executives at New Line and Warner Bros., who in his view "showed a lack of enthusiasm."

The film was/is supposed to be titled Dumb and Dumber To.

"I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer," the star himself said in a statement confirming the report. "After all, it's implied in the title."

Alas, no.

Perhaps studios weren't psyched about the box office of the Farrelly brothers' last venture, The Three Stooges, which sort of tanked at the box office.

Still, Carrey and Jeff Daniels in a Dumb and Dumber sequel that fans have clamored for since the mid-90s? How would that not be a hit?

In any case, Carrey, who made news last week for being criticized by Jenny McCarthy, will next appear with Steve Carell in the comedy Burt Wonderstone.

Jim, other movie companies would take this on, don't turn this down without looking elsewhere for u a& jeff to do this. some things GREAT 1994 D&D, need a final ending. It may be the single best thing u have done in your career, and not making this happen WILL have a major impact in the minds of genuine fans of YOURS! shop it around it brake ur contract, but make this movie with Jeff and make it a amazing end of a story of true comic genius!

From what it says here it's more of the producers' hearts than Carrey's that is in question. He just doesn't want to take part in something that will probably end up as a train wreck after seeing - pardons for pushing the metaphor a little further - how poorly the tracks are being placed. Really hope you get to have your true sequel Mr. Carrey.

I'd give him (Carrey)last chance, and if he turns it (DD2)down, then he is a big time ass hole (besides his real life wackiness)...
Be an actor, man! or get the hell out of here! nobody needs your freaky, 23 kind of stuff.

Im torn because I think that not only would it be great, nostalgic blast from the past type of film, it would make a KILLING... BUT I do agree that the last thing a fan wants is a half-hearted film that could taint it.
