Nearly 20 years after the original, it looked the sequel to 1994's comedy classic Dumb & Dumber was finally a go. But today, star Jim Carrey laid that to rest by confirming that he's withdrawing from the project.
"I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title," Carrey quipped in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.
ET says that Carrey was frustrated by the perceived lack of enthusiasm the studio was showing the project.
Earlier this spring, Dumb & Dumber creators Peter and Bobby Farrelly revealed that a sequel to their hit was in the works, and would begin production this fall with stars Carrey and Jeff Daniels.
