Getting the go-ahead to make the sequel to Dumb and Dumber seems like a pretty smart move, but for some reason it's not happening yet.
"I'm ready," Carrey told me last night at SXSW's opening night premiere of his new comedy, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. "There is a script. It's fun. Jeff and I are raring to go."
So what's the holdup?
"It's administrative," Carrey said, adding, "The green light committees have to have their way."
Carrey raised eyebrows about two years when he posted a video on YouTube professing his love for Ms. Stone. He later explained he was just having fun and Stone even told New York magazine she was flattered by the message.
Asked about Tatum and Stone being in the sequel, Carrey said, "That would be great. That would be awesome."
