Jim Carrey Exits Dumb and Dumber Sequel

There was a great deal of excitement generated by the news of a sequel to the 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber – particularly because all of the parties from the original were set to return including Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, and the Farrelly Brothers to direct. Unfortunately now Carrey is reportedly leaving Dumb and Dumber To due to a perceived lack of interest by the studios involved in its development.

It’s hard to imagine the film even getting made – or anyone even wanting it to happen – without Carrey’s involvement. The hope then turns to this just being a power play on his part to get the attention of those involved and create the circumstances in which he would return to the project.
