During a red carpet interview for a benefit event in Los Angeles, actress Tara Reid gave an interview on what she's got on her plate for this year. Under the influence of god-knows-what, Reid starting listing films at a rapid-fire pace, including the upcoming sequel American Pie 4. One film in particular stood out - The Big Lebowski 2. A lot of Coen Brothers fan claim The Big Lebowski as their favorite of the duo's, and to say it's become a cult hit is an understatement. And because of its cult status, a sequel seems highly unlikely. I'm not the only one who thinks so, as it's not actually happening.
Matthew Odam of Austin 360 got the chance to ask the Coen Brothers about the comment. They denied its existence, but that doesn't mean they aren't excited to see it!
When asked if they were working on the film, Ethan responded "Well, we don’t but we’ll watch it when it comes out." Joel then added "Especially if Tara's in it."
So yeah, there is no Big Lebowski 2, Reid was just talking crazy, and Joel and Ethan think it's pretty funny. Reid's "people" have attempted to clarify, saying that the actress had heard that Jeff Bridges wanted to get the cast back together for a sequel, and she apparently jumped to conclusions off of that. It seems plausible, at least more plausible than her actually being insane and making things up.
