Coen Brothers Shoot Down 'Big Lebowski 2,' Mock Tara Reid for Starting Rumor (Video)
The Coen Brothers aren't shooting Big Lebowski 2, despite Tara Reid announcing the sequel in a recent interview.
"I'm glad she's working on it," Ethan joked in an interview with Austin360.com Thursday.
When asked if he and Joel have plans for a follow-up, he said, "Well, we don't but we'll watch it when it comes out.” Added Joel, "Especially if Tara's in it."
Reid, who appeared in the original, started the rumors at a recent Comedy Club benefit show. Watch below.
"I have a movie coming out called The Fields," she said. "I have another one coming out that I produced with my brother, called The Irishman. And we'll be doing American Pie 4 this year and Big Lebowski 2 this year."
(In July, Bridges told MTV he had spoken about doing a second film, but nothing was planned: "No, no, no, I don't think it's gonna happen... But if it happens -- what a wonderful surprise!")
A rep for Reid explained the gaffe to Entertainment Weekly: "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."
