Marvel Studios, Feige No Longer Under Perlmutter's Purview
Comic Books, Film
In the words of the great Peter Venkman, “Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!” That roughly summarizes the thoughts rattling through my head as I watch the below video, in which Tara Reid declares that she’s got The Big Lebowski 2 coming up this year. I’ve watched it three times now. The words are real (around the 1:03 mark).
Obviously it must be a slip of the tongue, or more likely a Freudian Slip. Or possibly, as Spinoff managing editor Kevin Melrose suggested, a future version of Tara coming back to warn us of our horrific fate. Which seems perfectly logical, given the circumstances.
Let’s imagine for a moment that she’s actually breaking some news here. Joel and Ethan Coen are nothing if not unpredictable. No one who associates with them seems to think a sequel is ever going to happen. The brothers themselves even said it. Doesn’t mean a good way in hasn’t occurred to them. I’m not buying it though. But that doesn’t mean I can’t laugh about it.
