The last we heard about this sequel was back in September, when the filmmakers revealed they were nearly finished with the script, and that Dumb and Dumber To is the official title. Original Dumb and Dumber stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are still attached to the project, which was originally slated to begin production this spring, after Jeff Daniels wrapped production on Season 2 of HBO's The Newsroom. Now that the project does not have a studio home, it isn't clear when shooting may start.
Insiders claim that the studio saw a "limited upside" to the sequel, even though the budget is in the low $30 million range. However, Warner Bros. may have balked due to their under-performing comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, which also stared Jim Carrey and only took in $22 million domestically from a similar budget.
Jeff Daniels revealed in August that the story centers on Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) hitting the road once again, when they learn that one of them may have a child, who is in desperate need of a kidney transplant.
