So you’re saying there’s a chance…?

Actually, maybe not.

Jim Carrey has withdrawn from plans to reunite with Jeff Daniels and the Farrelly brothers for a sequel to their 1994 hit comedy, Dumb and Dumber. A spokesperson for the actor confirmed an Entertainment Tonight report that he’d grown “increasingly frustrated” by the lack of progress and enthusiasm from Warner Bros. and New Line. “I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer,” Carrey said in a statement. “After all it’s implied in the title.”

In April, while promoting The Three Stooges, the Farrellys had announced that the original cast would return for a sequel that would begin shooting this September.

Carrey’s comment seems to indicate that he still has an interest in revisiting the Dumb duo, if circumstances improve.
