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.

Really TMZ... you made me watch a 30 second commercial before I could watch a 22 second sound bite? Not a good return on my investment. Ba bye...

Dumb and Dumber was original and funny, Carrey and Daniels were hilarious, think they pretty much tapped into all the humor they could with the movie, be hard to beat it with a sequel

Hear you, D, but re-consider.


In order to meet and overcome any problem/issue?


You don't meet it at its' own level.


You don't "try" to "top" the original - that's not the game.


You give The_Farrelly's an idea (and script or treatment) they can tweak and work their magic on.


Then you bring Jim Carrey/Jeff Daniels into the creative development.


Didn't they say the same thing about the Beatles?


Prior to "Sgt. Peppers" coming out?


They said, "The Beatles can't top anything they've ever done - "


It's the same solution -


And happily I have the RX and idea.


It's going to be like Ice Cube said: "A Good Day."

Nof's got this D2R (Dead-To-Rights). Why I'd drive down to Venice - just to read nof's grafitti. ...It's like what nof's previously written. The studios kidnapped the Farrelly's and have them tied-up, blind-folded and gagged. Heavily-edit everything the Farrelly's think, say and do.

...Right-forward (on), nof!

Nof obviously can't give all his secrets away, but I know where he's going on this ... know what he's saying and thinking...In the beginning they told the Farrelly's you can't change the-rules-of-comedy...and "Everything's been done..." and/or "That's never been attempted (no recorded box office on that idea... so you can't do it..."

-They wouldn't have become The Farrelly's if they were easy to discourage - good for you on all this,Nof.

@ Norba

Thanks for remembering that, Norba.

I know where the studios are keeping The Farrelly's.


Know the Farrelly's can get out of the handcuffs, the blindfolds, the gags - can GET the rope off - escape -


And I'd help them, I really would.


Would hire a_crew and to break-they-out...


But then the studios would have all of our family's killed -


Not to be cliche' or cute on this, but it's a true "conundrum."
