Although the blonde actress only had a small part in The Big Lebowski, she apparently has the scoop on a sequel unbeknownst to the Coens.
Tara Reid isn't exactly the most reliable source for movie news, and she proved that again last night. She appeared as a host for a fundraising event in Los Angeles at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club and Hollywood.tv asked her what she was working on in the next year. After listing some crap films like The Fields and The Irishman that she has coming out in 2010, she went out on a limb by claiming she was working on two very high profile sequels: American Pie 4 and The Big Lebowski 2. While I could totally see those Brat Pack wannabes being wheeled out for another pie-fucking cash-in, it's seems crazy that the Coen brothers, who won their first Oscar for Best Director in 2007's No Country for Old Men, would be crazy enough to make a second Big Lebowski movie.
I mean, how can you make a better movie than that? You don't fuck with the Jesus, mon. Apparently I'm not the only person who thinks that's a terrible idea as the Coen brothers responded with characteristic sarcasm and wit.
"I'm glad she's working on it," Ethan Coen said, chuckling.
So does that mean the Coens don't really have a Big Lebowski sequel in production? "Well, we don't but we'll watch it when it comes out," Ethan said.
"Especially if Tara's in it," Joel Coen added.
Afterwards, Tara Reid's handlers were sure to point out that Jeff Bridges, aka The Dude, was the first to mention a possible sequel. Bridges told MTV in July 2010 that he and the Coens would joke about it on the set of True Grit but that there were "no plans man, no plans. No, no, no, I don't think it's gonna happen." Then there was that mischievous smile before Bridges added, "But if it happens - what a wonderful surprise!"
That little line was what sparked Tara Reid thinking that a sequel was indeed in the works. Wonderful woman. We're all, we're all very fond of her. Very free-spirited.
