I'm not going to say, "I told you so," but I will say I was very skeptical about Tara Reid's news concerning a sequel to The Big Lebowski. Liz watched the video and pointed out the parts about "10 year reunion" and "the whole cast is coming back" is most likely concerning American Pie 4. I think the most sad part about that interview is the fact the interviewer is more interested in a fourth installment to the American Pie series than a sequel to quite possibly the most celebrated film by the Coen Brothers.
I have found some interesting responses to the news. One great article comes from achiever James Eppler at FOX 34 News. Here are a couple noteworthy quotes.
The actress who played the strumpet wife Bunny hasn't worked much in the past few years. Perhaps she went out and owes money all over town and just needs a sequel to happen.
This isn't 'nam. This is filmmaking - there are rules.
Here's the link to Eppler's entire article - http://www.myfoxlubbock.com/mostpopular/story/big-lebowski-sequel-coen-brothers-jeff-bridges/sF7j0E00SkGm3svEn8j0UA.cspx
The second response I want to share comes straight from the directors' mouths, Joel and Ethan Coen.
“I’m glad she’s working on it,” Ethan told Austin 360’s Matthew Odam. “We’ll watch it when it comes out.” Joel added, “Especially if Tara’s in it.”
