Dumb and Dumber To Producers Lawsuit Sequel17 Apr 2014
By Eva Araújo (Web correspondent)
It is amazing what goes on, on the side lines and behind the scenes.
We all remember the months before the pre-production of "Dumb & Dumber To" started, that some problems started due to the fact that Warner decided not to be part of the movie and that when Red Granite, took the wheel, two producer sued the company, alleged due to - what a shocker - money.
"This all started last July when Red Granite fired off a complaint to have Stabler and Krevoy tossed off the sequel to Dumb & Dumber, the 1994 film starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, without any of the producer fees or credits the duo said they're contractually owed. Claiming that they were supposed to $400,000 in front-end compensation for the sequel, which Red Granite picked up the rights to a few years back, the two veteran producers shot back in a counterclaim soon afterward. Among other things, they said that RG principals Aziz and supposed former party planner Joey McFarland were neophytes who lacked the skills to produce movies. Of course that was before Red Granite financed and pulled off The Wolf Of Wall Street."
In recent weeks the two producers have filed an amended complaint saying that "Red Granite is funded with moneys that include proceeds from unlawful activities". Red Granite has counter complaint saying that "These false, malicious and baseless allegations are demonstrably untrue and that we look forward to the prompt dismissal of these claims".
Regardless of the result of the lawsuits and what goes on between these issues, one thing we are certain: they won't affect the movie.
"Dumb and Dumber To" is currently in post-production with the premiere date set to be in November 14 of this year, and with the amazing reviews from the first cut of the movie, and from how bad people need a laugh these days… one thing is for sure:
The movie will be a huge success!
