It was with great joy and pride that we told you “Dumb and Dumber To” was happening, with both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprising their memorable roles. It is with great disappointment, then, that we inform you Carrey will no longer be part of the film.
According to sources, Carrey grew increasingly frustrated by New Line and Warner Brothers, who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project.
A sentiment seemingly reinforced by a statement exclusively obtained when ETOnline reached out to the actor's publicist for comment. In addition to confirming the story, Carrey exclusively tells ETOnline, "I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title."
While the future of Dumb & Dumber To is now unknown, Carrey's fans can rest easy knowing the actor will be back on the big screen next year in New Line and Warner Brothers' The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
Well, damn it. We were all really looking forward to seeing what happened to those guys with Big Gulps.
