Jim Carrey Leaves ‘Dumb and Dumber 2′ So is the sequel Dead Now?
A couple months back Peter Farrelly announced that Dumb and Dumber 2 was a go and that shooting would begin sometime in September with both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels returning to play their iconic roles once more. However things have taken a turn for the worst.
Entertainment Tonight has reported that Jim Carrey has left the film and won’t be returning for the sequel. ET had the following to say regarding the departure:
According to sources, Carrey grew increasingly frustrated by New Line and Warner Brothers, who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project,
They were able to get a quote from Carrey regarding his departure via his publicist which was short and sweet:
I would have thought Dumb and Dumber Two was a no-brainer, after all it’s implied in the title.
With Carrey now gone from the program, the question remains if the film will carry on and have him replaced or will they just scrap the project altogether. If I had a say, I would say this is for the best because the film really didn’t need a sequel and with Carrey’s previous track record, it probably would have been a flop.
So do you think Carrey leaving the film was a blessing in disguise or do you still want to see a sequel made?
