The actor felt the Farrelly Brothers' project lacked studio support, according to a new report.
Jim Carrey has scrapped plans to star in a sequel to his 1994 hit comedy Dumb and Dumber, Entertainment Tonight reports.
Nooooo! The only reason I was looking forward to this one was because of the original cast. With Carrey out, my interest is now gone. Hopefully they just trash it now.
I agree. Bar any deaths, this was one of the saddest announcements in the movie industry in a long time for me, Dumb & Dumber is my favourite comedy of all time. My interest has gone from 100% to 0%.
He should focus on another Ace Ventura.
Meh, I never really cared for those movies, and could live without ever seeing another one.
I hated Ace Ventura. I'm very ok with no more of them being made. Def. bummer about Dumb and Dumber though.
Well he should make a third one since Ace Ventura Jr was so crap I mean they should write that film off as a joke...like Ace wakes up and says he's just had a horrible nightmare.
and elvis left the building
There's pretty well no reason to even make this movie now if Jim isn't going to be a part of the movie.
Then they should just cancel the movie all together.....
Yep, time to move on to something else. I like Daniels but he worked well with Carrey on the other side. Without one or the other it just seems to fall apart.
Come on man!!!
Jim Carrey smartly did the right thing. He's just the King of facial and physical antics.. better than Jerry Lewis I think, but in Dumb and Dumber I thought Jeff Daniels actually had the better part and was a lot funnier although that dream sequence where Jim Carrey with the lighter and the fart scene was spectacularly hilarious.
Jim Carrey is starting in the new Dumb and Dumber sequel... AAAAAAND HE'S GONE.
He probably thought the sequel was dumb.
ba dum tsss
GOD DAMMIT! My sister told me about this on Monday and now he decided to leave it just like that??? RRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG GGGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEE
They need to everything they can to get him back.
I can't imagine why the studio wouldn't be all over wanting to make this sequel. I'd imagine there's definitely a good audience for it out there. Who knows, maybe they'll be able to drum up studio excitement soon enough. Then they can convince Carrey to come back on. If they can't get Carrey back, though, I say scrap it. There doesn't really seem a point to do it if Jim and Jeff aren't both doing it.
jim carey should do a movie about his fire chief character from in living color, now that would be funny.
Sorry, no Carrey, no interest.
finally a actor that respect itself and is not a money whore.
This project reeked of desperation from the get go. The Farrelly Bros. haven't been relevant since the 90s.
