Smart Move? Jim Carrey Is Out of ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Sequel

Jim CarreyThe future of the long-rumored sequel to Dumb and Dumber is less clear than ever, after Jim Carrey bowed out of the project.

ETOnline reports that Carrey was rumored to have grown increasingly frustrated with studios New Line and Warner Bros.’ lack of excitement about Dumb and Dumber To (yes, that was the actual working title) — and it ultimately led to Carrey exiting the project, telling ETOnline, “I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it’s implied in the title.”

Carrey starred as Lloyd Christmas (alongside Jeff Daniels as Harry Dunne) in the hit 1994 Farrelly brothers comedy, which spawned a prequel, 2003’s not-quite-as-beloved Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd. A proper sequel, in which both lead actors were reportedly reprising their roles, was said to be in the works, but Carrey’s departure obviously renders that very much uncertain.

Carrey’s next film is the 2013 comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, alongside Olivia Wilde and Steve Carell.
