Jeff Bridges has posted a video of himself as his character The Dude as he hinted at a possible sequel to cult classic The Big Lebowski.
The Oscar-winning actor starred as Jeffrey Lebowski – also known as The Dude – in the Coen Brothers’ 1998 comedy noir parody, which became a quotable favourite.
Bridges posted a video of himself in the distinctive cardigan and sunglasses of The Dude, with a sample of The Big Lebowski soundtrack playing in the background.
The star wrote on Twitter: “Can’t be living in the past, man. Stay tuned.”
The short teaser film shows Bridges smile at the camera after avoiding stepping in shattered glass.
A tumbleweed, which featured in the intro of the first film, then rolls by revealing a date of February 3 2019, which may indicate a major step towards confirmation of a sequel.
There have also been suggestions on social media that the teaser may tie in with the Super Bowl, which takes place on February 3 in the US.
The Big Lebowski is a comic take on noir thrillers, with a convoluted plot revolving around a hapless and hopelessly lazy bowling enthusiast. It also starred Steve Buscemi, John Goodman, Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
