Coen Bros. Find Out About The Big Lebowski 2 from Tara Reid
02.06.11 by BJSprecher
Just in time for the 2011 Lebowki Fest in Tampa comes the news that The Big Lebowski is getting a sequel. According to actress Tara Reid, who played Bunny Lebowski in the 1998 cult classic movie from Ethan and Joel Coen, The Big Lebowski 2 will begin filming "this year," bringing together "the whole cast" for a "10-year reunion." Sounds great, right? Other than the fact that it would be the 13-year reunion of the cast, the big problem with Reid's announcement is that...nobody told the Coen Bros.!
Good thing they have a sense of humor. When asked about Reid's statements by Austin360, Ethan said, "I’m glad she’s working on it." Ethan said that they do not have any plans for The Big Lebowski 2 right now, but that they will "watch it when it comes out," with Joel chiming in, "Especially if Tara’s in it."
A representative for Reid later told EW that Tara had been misinformed.
She heard Jeff Bridges say that he wanted to make Big Lebowski 2 and have all the original cast members in it, so she may have misspoke, thinking that included her based on what Jeff said.
Poor, Tara. That girl just can't catch a break.
