Jeff Bridges Teases Sequel To The Big Lebowski

Jeff Bridges has dropped a very strong hint that there may be a sequel to The Big Lebowski in a post on Twitter.

The actor appeared dressed as the movie's hero, hapless-stoner-turned-detective Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski, which he posted to Twitter with the caption: "Can't be living in the past, man. Stay tuned."

The date on the 15-second clip features the date 2.3.19 - if this sounds familiar, it's because it's the date of Super Bowl LIII. So what can we expect? A trailer for a long-awaited sequel? A simple revival of the character for a commercial during the biggest sporting event in the US? Looks like we'll have to wait to find out.

The news looks to have excited fans, who've swarmed social media to respond to Bridges' tweet. One said: "Back, just when we needed you most."

Another added: "The Dude. Jeff Bridges is a damn National Treasure."

Meanwhile, a hopeful third person posted: "Please tell me that this is going to be an ad for a new Lebowski movie on Super Bowl Sunday, and not just a stupid Super Bowl commercial that goes nowhere."

"Ugggggggghhhhh I want to be excited but this is one of the best movies from two of the best directors of all time and I just ... please don't ruin it," someone else said. Nice to see some people have faith.

Back in 2017, Bridges spoke to Digital Spy about a possible sequel, saying: "I think whatever [the Coen brothers, directors of the original movie] think.

"If they want to do a sequel, I'm sure it'd be a cool thing," he said, "and like so many masters of their craft, they make it look like I was just rolling off lines. He's just a silly stoner."

Bridges continued almost in-character: "But why do people keep looking at it, going...? You can see those scenes. I'm a guy who'd rarely or [not] ever watch my movies on TV."

When he was asked about the most memorable moments from filming the first movie, Bridges told Variety: "So many things flash. I'm thinking of the day that I invited my wife to come, and my girls, to come visit me on set.

"It was the day that I was to be pulled on a little skateboard underneath all these bowling pin careens and looking up at the vaginas as I passed."

Yeah, probably not a day you'd forget.
