Studio Dumps ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Sequel with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels

By

The Dumb and Dumber sequel has run into another hurdle. Variety reports that Warner Bros. has dropped the project, which was set to see original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and original writing/directing duo the Farrelly brothers returning. The sequel, entitled Dumb and Dumber To, has been in the works for over two years with Jim Carrey leaving the project last year over frustrations with the studio and coming right back, only to hit more studio problems this week.  The sequel picks up 20 years after the original film when Harry and Lloyd find out that one of them may have fathered a child and go to donate a kidney to that kid, who’s having health problems. While Warner Bros. has lost interest in the project, they’re allowing the Farrellys to take it to other studios and financiers, so get ready for another two years of will they/won’t they updates on the sequel.
