Jim Carrey Moves On From 'Dumber' Sequel

No one was more excited about the planned Dumb and Dumber sequel than Jim Carrey -- but three months after director Peter Farrelly confirmed that both original stars would reprise their iconic roles, ETOnline has exclusively learned that Carrey has exited from the project.

According to sources, Carrey grew increasingly frustrated by New Line and Warner Brothers, who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project.

A sentiment seemingly reinforced by a statement exclusively obtained when ETOnline reached out to the actor's publicist for comment. In addition to confirming the story, Carrey exclusively tells ETOnline, "I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title."

While the future of Dumb & Dumber To is now unknown, Carrey's fans can rest easy knowing the actor will be back on the big screen next year in New Line and Warner Brothers' The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
