It looks like the Dumb and Dumber sequel is back on, according to star Jeff Daniels.

Earlier this summer, Jim Carrey reportedly dropped out of the project just two months after directors the Farrelly Brothers announced plans to reboot the 1994 comedy, citing frustrations with the project's lack of progress.

However, Daniels insists that his co-star Carrey is back on board.

ContactMusic quotes Daniels as saying: "We almost were able to kinda get it done this year, but they're still working on the script.

"Jim wants to do it, I want to do it, the Farrellys want to do it... We're all hoping that it'll come together early next year."

Daniels is currently starring in The Newsroom as Will McAvoy.
