The Big Lebowski is one of those rare films, a movie which everyone has heard of but not that many of them have actually seen. Mistaken identity, a carpet that really goes well with the room and the Dude himself are just a few hallmarks of that classic film. It’s a standalone tale, one that doesn’t really need any expansion.
That doesn’t mean that fans aren’t eager to see a sequel though. But according to the directors of that film, the Coen brothers, that will never happen.
“I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Joel Coen said to the Toronto Star. “I just don’t like sequels.” Amongst those people who would be eager for a sequel though, is Jesus himself. And by Jesus, I mean John Turturro who has spoken before of a spin-off film for his bowling lover character. But that ain’t happening either according to the other Coen brother, Ethan:
John Turturro, who wants it, talks to us incessantly about doing a sequel about his (bowler) character Jesus. He even has the story worked out, which he’s pitched to us a few times, but I can’t really remember it. No, I don’t see it in our future.
