Jim Carrey Pulls Out of ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Sequel
Just a few months after the announcement of a sequel to ‘Dumb and Dumber’, Jim Carrey says he’s out. Apparently the studio was lacking enthusiasm, and Carrey decided to pull the plug.In 1994, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels teamed up with the Farrelly brothers and delivered comedy gold. ‘Dumb and Dumber’ is one of the best comedies of all time. The only thing that sort of ruined it was an attempt at a prequel in 2003.
We were willing to forgive that mistake when it was learend that a sequel starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels was announced in early 2012. Now, it’s not happening. Carrey has pulled out due to a ‘lack of enthusiasm’ by New Line Cinema. Maybe it’s for the best though. Sequels tend to never be as good as the first one.
