In the annals of comedies, The Big Lebowski is probably among the most deserving for a worthy sequel. Even 13 years after its release, fans still abide by the Dude, played by Jeff Bridges. But chances of a sequel seem thin with Joel and Ethan Coen not showing any interest in telling more of the Dude and Walter's (John Goodman) story.
Fans of The Big Lebowski got some false hope when Tara Reid mentioned she was preparing to reprise her role as Bunny for a sequel. Reid's announcement (which was news for the Coen brothers) was quickly debunked and fans drowned their sorrows in white Russians. But the funny crew at FunnyorDie.com (and Reid showing a good sense of humor) give us a trailer for the sequel to The Big Lebowski that could have been.
In the NSW spoof trailer, Reid shows her funny bone and takes on most of the roles from the original. Though there has been some changes since we last saw the Dude and company — Walter has converted to Buddhism, instead of Jesus we now have Muhammad and instead of a missing rug, the Dude is looking for his sofa.

American Pie 4 has been in the works for a while, with Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay writer/directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg announcing last April that they intended to direct the fourth installment of the franchise instead of A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas.
The Wrap reports that the upcoming sequel, titled American Reunion, is intending to bring back to original cast for another sequel, the first theatrical sequel since 2003's American Wedding. Jason Biggs and Seann William Scott are already signed to return as is Eugene Levy — no surprise there, since Levy appeared in all four direct-to-DVD American Pie Presents "comedies" such as 2009's American Pie Presents: The Book of Love. Scott's recent admission to a treatment program for "health and personal issues" is not expected to affect the production. What will Reunion be about? >> Posted 03.19.11 by Ryan
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. Posted 02.06.11 by BrentJS
