Alright, now we really don't know what to believe about a Dumb & Dumber sequel. The Farrelly Brothers have been hinting at it for years, and earlier this year it seemed to be actually happening, with Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey both saying they were on board, and the Farrellys promising a September shooting date.
Then the bottom fell out, with Carrey writing a funny but disappointing open letter that criticized Warner Bros. and New Line for not being enthusiastic enough about the project, and saying he had dropped out of th project. But now Daniels, who's busy charming the press at the Television Critics Assocation tour while promoting The Newsroom, has once again given us hope in a project that really seemed totally dead. Talking to Crave Online, Daniels said that Carrey does, in fact, still want to make the movie, and while the September start date is obviously not happening, there's still a lot of enthusiasm to make it happen eventually:
