Jeff Daniels

'Dumb and Dumber To'

Is Officially Dead

So much for all that one in a million talk ... Jeff Daniels tells TMZ the highly anticipated sequel to "Dumb and Dumber" is officially kaput.

The movie seemed to be in limbo after Jim Carrey dropped out because he felt the studio was less than enthusiastic about the project.

It was unclear if Jeff would remain on the project without his original co-star ... but last night in Hollywood, Daniels made it clear ... "Dumb and Dumber To" is like a parakeet without a head ... dead.

The first Dumb and Dumber was cute, but that wouldn't hold up today.

That's sad. But at the end of the day a good thing. That is a movie that HAS to have the originals in it to have any hope of pulling it off.

Wouldn't it be Dumb and Dumber TWO? I wonder who the dumb person is writing this crap.

Way too late because it's way too late for redemption.

"Highly anticipated"? By whom exactly?


Although, in all fairness, compared to a lot of the shows on TV today, "Dumb and Dumber" looks like highbrow Art House Cinema. It's a sad state of affairs when dog poop starts to look like chocolate because there's so much worse stuff lying around everywhere...

Too bad. I'd say it would have been funny. I love Jim Carrey <3

If the sequel was really "highly anticipated" then the studio would have been excited about it enough to put a lot of resources into it.

The Farrelly's are so rich now -


Wear so many hats.


That it's unreasonable they come up with the writing, admin, distrib, producing and directing.


It saps and sucks them dry - I've done this I know.


Once they have my original script for this.


The studios can take a fresh look.


Cuz it only needs to go in a warped direction.


If it has The_Farrelly's, Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels that's an automatic two-grand-slams in the same damn inning.


No one in this equation has anything to prove.


And what_about The_Farrelly's star on the Walk of Fame - where is that -


Why hasn't this happened.

Go to a more enthusiastic studio but make the damn sequel -


This is what upset me about Hollywood.

They force the Farrelly's to soften-things-up?


"Take-the-edge-off and out?"


Now they point to recent box office and say The_Brothers might be over.


I know these guys - they're too talented 2 B over.


Give the Farrelly Bros. back Their_Freak.


Somehow, someone out here get me a read.
