Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in 'Dumb and Dumber' -- New Line Cinema

Jim Carrey broke fans' hearts last year when he announced he was bowing out of a planned "Dumb and Dumber" sequel.

Now, Carrey - who is currently starring in "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" - says he's definitely back in - but there's still no start date for the comedy.

"I'm ready [to start filming]," Jim told E! News of reprising his role as Lloyd Christmas in the highly anticipated sequel to the 1994 hit. "There is a script. It's fun. Jeff [Daniels] and I are raring to go."

So, with Jim and Jeff on board (and a screenplay ready), why hasn't the project been started?

"It's administrative," Jim explained. "The green light committees have to have their way."

The actor also weighed in on "D & D" director Peter Farrelly's comments that he'd like to have Channing Tatum and one of Jim's favorite actresses, Emma Stone (remember that video love letter he made for her?!) in the film, rumored to be titled, "Dumb and Dumber To."

"That would be great," Jim said, of Channing and Emma possible joining the film. "That would be awesome."
