“Dumb And Dumber 2”: Jim Carrey Changes Mind

“Dumb And Dumber To”, the sequel to the enormously popular 1994 film starring Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey, has reportedly found a new home with Red Granite and Universal Pictures.

The movie has been in talks for a while now, but Carrey said last year that he didn’t think it was going to happen. Fans of the original–and of Carrey’s–wondered how he could turn down such a plum role, especially when his career has been a little lackluster in recent years. But Carrey said though he was interested, he didn’t feel movie execs were into the idea, and he didn’t want to keep pitching to a lackluster response. Ultimately, it got pitched to Warner Brothers and things were looking up, but the studio dropped it last week, leaving room for Universal to jump in and snatch it up.

Now, it seems, the movie has been given new life, and both Carrey and Daniels are said to be returning to their roles of Lloyd and Harry. The Farrelly brothers are also returning, both in director status and as writers, as they’ve redone the script.

    I think that is great I loved that movie thay need to make a sequel.

    Its about time. So pleased to see a comedy that could of easily made a second years ago. I think to be honest if they left it much longer it would not of worked. But 20 years after the original seems like just in time. I would not be shocked due to the effort the Farrelly Brothers Jim and Jeff wanted to do this it will be as big if not better than the first. This like many sequels was not rushed and was wanted to be done for sometime. WATCH OUT RON BURGUNDY HARRY AND LLOYD ARE BACK.

    You would think at this point in Jim Carrey’s life, the title “Dumb and Dumber” would suit better as a lifetime achievement award. You wanted to get political, I hope everything you touch flops, just like Burt Wonderstone!

  • John Collard

    Tom you sound like a nice guy. Has Jim borrowed money off you and not paid it back. )

    Sometimes people should just leave well enough alone. This movie is guaranteed to be a flop. People have moved on and Jim Carey has a big political mouth these days.

    Warner bros. Really screwed the pooch on this one. Flop? I think you’re a moron if you think it will flop. This movie is going to be a smash! Politics aside, jim carrey is only as funny as his writers. We have already seen what the farrely’s can do. I’m super excited. Dumb and dumber is one of the funniest movies ever made. Let’s not forget jeff daniels. The movie wouldn’t. Be the same without him.

    I look forward to seeing Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels together again in the new Dumb & Dumber sequel! I love the fact that every gun-toting, redneck on Earth is losing sleep over Jim’s ‘controversial’ video! Reality tends to cause real butt-hurt when one is emotionally dependent on an idiotic ideology, or even a self-defeating, counter-productive thought process. So there. :)

    Jim.. If you’re reading this.. Umm.. Ace Ventura 3?
