Jeff Daniels

Jeff Daniels says the proposed Dumber and Dumber sequel is not happening.

The actor - who starred in the original movie alongside Jim Carrey - insists a the follow-up to the hit 1994 comedy will not go ahead after Carrey dropped out.

"Are you going to get another Dumb and Dumber? It's on the internet - we're not doing it. It's all over the internet... [The movie's] not happening," he replied when asked by gossip website TMZ.com about the plans.

Dumb and Dumber 2 to Shoot This Year

Dumb and DumberA Dumb and Dumber sequel will start shooting in September.

Peter Farrelly - who directed the first instalment of the comedy film in 1994 - has confirmed Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey are on board to create the follow-up, which will not be similar to Dumb and Dumberer, a 2003 prequel in which neither of them starred.

"We're getting set to shoot Dumb and Dumber 2 in September. It's the first sequel we've ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back. We did not do Dumb and Dumberer. That was a studio thing. So we've always wanted to do a sequel and finally Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, 'We've got to do this thing again,'" Peter said.

No story is yet known for the picture. The first film told the tale of two idiotic friends - Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne - and their mis-adventures on a road trip around the country. It took $247 million at the international box office.

Over the past five days, did what most films have been attempting all year: It passed the $200 million mark. (Up just became the first 2009 film to hit $250 million.)

While the Michael Bay film is definitely on track to be one of the most successful entries this year (let’s not forget about Harry Potter), the sequel’s opening still takes second behind last year’s topper. During its opening run, earned $203.8 million domestically.
