The comedy sequel â€œDumb and Dumber Toâ€ was dropped by Warner Brothers after years in development with New Line Cinema, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It doesnâ€™t mean the project is deadâ€¦..yet. It opens an opportunity to shop the project to other studios.
The comedic duo Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels will reunite to play Harry and Lloyd in the goofy comedy sequel of the 1994 movie. The original directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly will also be back at the helm.
The plot this time around is for the guys to find a kidney for Harry Dunneâ€™s illegitimate daughter.
New Line did make a prequel with 2003â€™s â€œDumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.â€ But, we all would like to forget that movie.
According to THRâ€™s several sources, the studio planned to allocate in the low $30-million range to produce this movie. However, another Carrey movie â€œThe Incredible Burt Wonderstoneâ€ did poorly in theaters by grossing $22 million domestically on a $30 million budget earlier this year.
If another studio picks up the tab, New Line will still get a licensing fee and a share of the back end.
