Dumb And Dumber sequel is dead

Jim Carrey confirms that Dumb And Dumber 2 is a no-no...

Earlier this year, the Farrelly Brothers, whilst promoting their take on The Three Stooges, confirmed that they were planning to make their first sequel. It was a bit of a surprise, given that the film in question was Dumb And Dumber 2, a movie that previously star Jim Carrey had shown little obvious interest in. But Carrey was on board too, and the project seemed to be moving ahead.

Well, until now, anyway.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Jim Carrey has now walked away from the proposed new Dumb And Dumber follow-up (a prequel has already been made some time back, with neither the Farrelly Brothers or Carrey on board), citing a lack of interest from New Line and Warner Bros.

The Entertainment Tonight report says that Carrey was "increasingly frustrated" by the studio, "who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project". Carrey has apparently confirmed this, telling Entertainment Tonight that he thought the film would be a "no-brainer".

Whether this leaves the film utterly dead remains to be seen. We can't imagine an Anchorman 2-style swathe of support is about to resurrect it, though...
