Jeff Daniels - Jeff Daniels Hopeful About Dumb & Dumber Sequel

Actor Jeff Daniels remains hopeful the Dumb & DumbER sequel will eventually hit the big screen, despite co-star Jim Carrey dropping out of the planned project earlier this month (Jun12).
The highly-anticipated follow-up to the 1994 comedy about two dim-witted pals was confirmed by the Farrelly brothers in April (12), but the production has been stalled by continuous delays and lack of studio support for the film.
Carrey eventually walked away from the movie after growing "increasingly frustrated" by the project's lack of progress, but Daniels is optimistic the sequel will one day be made.
He tells Cnn's Piers Morgan, "I know this, all four of us - myself, the Farrelly brothers and Jim - would all love to do it. Jim's wanted to do it for a year and a half and we've hit some bumps in the road and my hope is, while I completely agree with Jim's stance on it, you know frustrated and throwing up his hands, I hope that there's a happy ending and we get to do it."
