We May See A DUMB & DUMBER Sequel After All

Fans of the 1994 comedy "Dumb & Dumber" were disappointment when Jim Carrey announced that he had left the project last month.

The actor had reportedly grown weary of delays and a "lack of enthusiasm" for the project on the part of New Line and Warner Brothers saying "I would have thought Dumb and Dumber Two was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title."

But in a recent press conference for his HBO series "Newsroom" Carrey's "Dumb and Dumber" co-hort, Jeff Daniels, indicated that the sequel would be moving forward after all, saying:


“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."

As to Carrey's previous statement, Daniels feels that the heat of the moment dictated Carrey's (momentary?) departure from the film.

"...This has been a year and a half of a whole bunch of are we, aren’t we, what’s going on, yeah the script’s funny, no it’s not, now we have to have notes. So I think Jim just got frustrated and I completely got it. I was frustrated too. We thought it was in pretty good shape. The studio and others wanted some more work done it. The Farrellys wanted more work done on it so they got working on it and I think last week they decided to push the shooting of it to next year, possibly because I wasn’t going to move 'The Newsroom.'"

We will keep you updated as details emerge.

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.

    Magic and "The Social Network" shouldn't be in the same sentence. It was an awful movie for what has become "The Hateful Network". It's the beginning of the end for FB.
