SUNDANCE: Susan Sarandon Open to 'Bull Durham' Sequel
PARK CITY -- Susan Sarandon reflected on her life and career today in a conversation with Elvis Mitchell at the Sundance Bing Bar, during which the Oscar-winning actress said people are still hoping for sequels to her biggest films.
"People are still talking about a Bull Durham sequel," says Sarandon of a follow-up to her classic 1988 baseball movie. "There have been a lot of ideas but who knows. I would definitely love to work with Kevin [Costner] again."
Sarandon also said after the biggest movie of her career, 1991's Thelma & Louise, there was also talk of resurrecting the roles she and Gina Davis made iconic -- an effort made quite difficult considering the film's fatal ending.
"There was one idea that we would be watching from heaven," said Sarandon, who also shot down many requests to do commercials in character. "We never wanted to use those girls that way."
