Coen brothers shoot down any chance of Big Lebowski sequel

May 26th, 2013 by Marc Comments

OK, come on admit, The Big Lebowski rules. Simple as. The Dude is a legend and we would all like to see a sequel, while also fearing the very concept...

Well, The Coen Brothers Joel and Ethan (above), doing the Cannes Press circuit for Inside Llewyn Davis, which is reportedly a true return to form for the brothers, have laid to rest any chance of a sequel.

Darkhorizons are reporting that the duo did confirm it’s something they talked about but don’t honestly think it’ll happen: Ethan Cohen says: “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.”

Joel Coen added: “I don’t think it’s going to happen… I just don’t like sequels.”

Mixed feelings on this one guys… both happy the original will be forever preserved and also devastated that these characters will never return to the screen…

What do you all think?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
