Dumb And Dumber Sequel Nixed By Warner Bros., Farrellys Free To Shop It Around

dumb and dumberI was never sure there’s much a market for the proposed Dumb and Dumber sequel and it would seem that Warner Bros. have finally decided that they feel the same way.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film’s $30 million price tag has proven too high for the studio to want to press ahead. Compare that budget to the $22 million taken at the US box office for Burt Wonderstone, the last Carrey-does-Carrey-schtick comedy, and I think you’ll grasp their point of view.

Dumb and Dumber To is not necessarily a dead project, mind, as Warner Bros. have given Bobby and Peter Farrelly the option to shop the sequel around to other studios, financiers and distributors… in exchange for a license fee and cut of the take.

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have both agreed to star, formally being “attached” to the film, though no deals will have been signed as yet.

Should it happen, the film’s plot will apparently be in the road movie mould, with Lloyd and Harry searching out Harry’s illegitimate daughter, looking to secure her kidney for a transplant that will save her dad’s life. Did Warner Bros. not think to cast that apparent box office midas Melissa McCarthy as the daughter?
