Well, it looks like Warner Brothers has decided that the Dumb and Dumber franchise has run its course. Sort of. The studio has passed on the sequel to the cult favorite Jim Carey vehicle due its sizable budget of $30 Million.
This might not be the end of the project though. Warner Brothers have given the Farrelly Brothers the go ahead to seek out other financial backers, studios, or distributors to produce the movie. The film’s final take will just have to be shared with Warner Brothers. That’s not such a terrible price to pay.
The film’s plot supposedly centers around Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels traveling cross country to make find Daniel’s illegitimate daughter. The reason? He needs her kidney.
I’m pretty sick of road movies and I’m not entirely sure that the Dumb and Dumber franchise needs to be continued. Anyone remember the prequel? Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd? No, me neither. I definitely didn’t see that opening weekend.
