LOS ANGELES, June 11 (UPI) -- Bobby and Peter Farrelly are looking for a studio for their "Dumb and Dumber" sequel since Warner Bros. now won't be making it, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are attached to reprise their starring roles as best pals Lloyd and Harry in the followup to the 1994 comedy blockbuster, with the Farrellys set to write, direct and produce it.

The sequel will show the guys on a road trip to find Harry's long-lost daughter for a kidney transplant, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.

Warner Bros. dropped the "Dumb and Dumber" sequel after its comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," which also starred Carrey, did lukewarm business at the domestic box office.
