Last year, Carrey announced he was bowing out of a planned "Dumb and Dumber" sequel. Now, though, Carrey, who co-stars in the upcoming film "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," says he's definitely back in the film, which is rumored to be called "Dumb and Dumber To."
I'm ready [to start filming]. There is a script. It's fun. Jeff [Daniels] and I are raring to go.
There is a problem, still, though. The film still has not been green-lighted with a start date. Carrey said,
It's administrative. The green light committees have to have their way.
"Dumb and Dumber" was a 1994 American buddy comedy which starred Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as two good-natured, but incredibly moronic friends.
It was written and directed by the Farrelly brothers, and took in $275.3 million globally, on an estimated budget of $17 million.
Meanwhile, Carrey's current film, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" premiered on March 8; it enters wide release on March 15. In the film, Steve Carell and Jim Carrey play Burt Wonderstone and Steve Gray respectively. This is the third film in which Carrey and Carell starred alongside another, after 2003's "Bruce Almighty" and 2008's "Horton Hears a Who!"
