Warner Bros. drops Dumb and Dumber sequel but its head hasn't fallen off yet

06.11.2013

If you didn't get the headline click here. It appears the sequel to DUMB AND DUMBER has hit another speed bump. THR has learned that Warner Bros. has dropped DUMB AND DUMBER TO. Sources for THR say the studio doesn't think the sequel will perform that well and wouldn't be worth going forward with even though the budget for the DUMB AND DUMBER TO is apparently in the low $30 million range. Part of the reason why the studio has gone with this decision might be because of how poorly THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE performed. Jim Carrey was also one of the main stars of that film and it too carried a price tag of around $30 million yet it only made about $22 million.

The good news is Warner Bros. is shopping the project to other studios. According to Deadline Red Granite Pictures is interested in financing the film and covering foreign markets, and five other companies are looking into distributing the film domestically.

I wouldn't say DUMB AND DUMBER TO is on the same level as GHOSTBUSTERS 3 of sequels that don't necessarily need to happen but are constantly talked about or rumored yet can never seem to get all the right pieces in place at the right time. But sometimes it's damn close. I am glad Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are attached to the sequel but if they weren't I'd want nothing to do with it. The Farrelly Brothers have not been at their best in quite a while and that's my biggest concern for DUMB AND DUMBER TO. 

But with Daniels and Carrey still in the mix I can't help but have some hope that if the sequel does happen it will be just as ridiculous and hilarious as the first one.

Dumb Decision

That's not fair. It's like they're blaming Jim Carrey for the poor sales of Burt Wonderstone when in fact he did an awesome parody of Kriss Angel? Somebody get Seabass to kick WB's ass for this.

forget dumb and dumber 2

The only Jim Carrey movie worthy of a sequel is THE MASK. I would love to see him come back to playing stanley ipkiss. The comic book had so many storylines and villains that the sequel could go in any direction. anyone else agree with me?

There was a sequel to the Mask called Son of the Mask. Carrey wasn't in it though...... My son was in it as a baby and it was terrible. I've watched the scene with my son and that's about it. God aweful film.

Seriously?

Let's go ahead and churn out 100 Scary Movie sequels and spinoffs, but let's hesitate on a true sequel to what is considered one of the most favorite comedy films of our generation.

Burt Wonderstone was pure garbage, and Jim Carrey was barely in it, it was more like an extended cameo. That's sounds like a BS reason to me.

I have a feeling that Dumb and Dumber To would easily make its money back, especially if the budget is around $30 million. The original is a classic and has a huge following behind it. It's those same people that would be seeing this on opening weekend and having the film make its money back.

I could live without seeing a sequel, but this is one comedy sequel that would probably be worth the gamble.

Come on!

"THR has learned that Warner Bros. has dropped DUMB AND DUMBER TO. Sources for THR say the studio doesn't think the sequel will perform that well and wouldn't be worth going forward with"

*BANGS HEAD AGAINST DESK REPEATEDLY* REALLY?!?!

"Part of the reason why the studio has gone with this decision might be because of how poorly THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE performed"

Obviously that makes sense cause Burt Wonderstone was such a grrrrreat movie. Not like it made over a 100 mill like

Obviously that makes sense cause Burt Wonderstone was such a grrrrreat movie. Not like it made over a 100 mill like Dumb and Dumber did (in the mid 90s none the less), but you know, since that movie did poorly no way we should get Dumb and Dumber too because of it. After all, we as movie goers should be forced to sit though poor comedies to get better ones to come out.

Maybe if they marketed Burt Wonderstone as a movie we have to see to get Dumb and Dumber Too made more people would have seen it.

I kind of would like to see a sequel. I loved the first one and can watch it anytime I am flipping channels. To have both Carey and Daniels return, I will hold out hope for this to be made
