Nooooooo! Jim Carrey has decided to exit Dumb and Dumber 2

Jun. 20, 2012by: Niki Stephens

Before I write this up, I refuse to believe it. There's got to be a June Fools Day or something because this is horseshit!

Jim Carrey is exiting DUMB AND DUMBER 2. This ruins everything. People everywhere are now sad. I can tell you that if Carrey is gone, he most likely took Jeff Daniels with him. Not that I'd ever want to see a sequel to the film without either of them anyway.

So why did Carrey leave? Apparently he was growing increasingly frustrated by New Line and Warner Brothers, who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project. WHAT THE F*CK NEW LINE AND WARNER BROTHERS? GET IT TOGETHER! Okay, so maybe I wasn't there, but this really breaks my heart.

The news was confirmed and Carrey added this, "I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title."

GOODBYE MY LOVE!

Extra Tidbit: Sorry for being overly dramatic and using caps.

Sad news, but I hope this means the project is dead, and not that they'll try to do it without Carrey.

Fingers crossed that this is just a power play to get Warner/New Line to fork over more cash for the production. Notice how Jim Carrey didn't say the script sucked or how he no longer wanted to work with Jeff Daniels or the Farrelly's again. Remember everyone, it took nearly 10 years for Paramount to agree on Anchorman 2, sometimes studios just have their blinders on when it comes to comedy.

Niki

Question for Niki, is your "Nooooooo!" from your title supposed to be said like Darth Vader? Either way, that's how I read it.

Having Darth Vader scream "Nooooooo!" is just as dumb as not getting behind Dumb and Dumber to!!!

Great now I have Star Wars Prequel quotes stuck in my head!

How is Padme? Nooooooo!
Yippee!
Medichlorians....UGH!!

They already tried this once without Carry or Daniels, and look how that turned out.

Stop It Now...

Stop the production and let's move on. Without Carrey or Daniels, this is a lame idea!

Gotta give credit to Carrey on this one, I was looking forward to this getting made. If the studios aren't behind it OR are trying to take too much control of it then I'm glad he bailed...if it's salary related and they're afraid it'll tank...just give the man points!!!

I just hope it's not a case of Carrey complaining that he's not getting paid enough (unless it's legitimate). I think he owes the fans another one!

As others have said, this is obviously about money. And as others have said, Dumb and Dumber To is a fantastic title. For shame.

No Surprise Here

Jim Carrey hasn't had a real serious hit since Bruce Almighty in 2003. Fun with Dick and Jane made $110 million in 2005 but who the hell considers that a classic movie? I think Warners and New Line probably asked him to take a lower salary. With his track record in the last 10 years and the Farrelly brothers horrible track record in the same period it makes sense to me. Too Bad greed is going to kill something that would have most likely returned Carrey and the Farrelly brothers back to the

I think something funky is happening at Warners. I mean they lost Silver and Clooney's production companies, combined New Line with them though I don't know why, thought another sequel to Dumb and Dumber was a good idea now this. Something rotten in Denver.

Translation:

Carrey wants a bigger paycheck.

Look, I'm super-happy for a sequel to be made for this and this news has saddened me. But my inner cynic knows better, I guess: Carrey swore off sequels for years because of artistic integrity, but after his career hit the skids suddenly he's interested in Dumb and Dumber 2, Bruce Almighty 2 and who knows what else.

Carrey's star has fallen quite a bit and his paychecks have taken a hit as a result. (Example: on Yes Men he didn't get his

But my inner cynic knows better, I guess: Carrey swore off sequels for years because of artistic integrity, but after his career hit the skids suddenly he's interested in Dumb and Dumber 2, Bruce Almighty 2 and who knows what else.

Carrey's star has fallen quite a bit and his paychecks have taken a hit as a result. (Example: on Yes Men he didn't get his once-record-breaking $20 mil picture deal so he opted instead for a percentage of the movie's final gross in addition to a reduced upfront paycheck.)

Chances are Carrey was expecting a bigger paycheck now that he's "returning" to his big franchises, but Warner Bros/New Line didn't play ball.

I see no other reason for this to have happened.

Just last week Jeff Daniels gave an interview saying how excited he was to be making the film and that Carrey was on board. No indication from him that there was a lack of support from the studio.

Hopefully this tactic won't backfire on Carrey and New Line will cave in.

BTW, that "Dumb and Dumber To" title is fantastic. That is indeed the first time it's been referred to as such, which means behind-the-scenes it was probably the official title of the project.

"Dumb and Dumber To" is actually pretty funny. This is the first I've heard that.

Ahh, but what could have been

If anything, the nostalgia factor would have been enough to earn back the movie's budget. *sigh*
