Jeff Bridges is in talks with director Peter Bogdanovich about a second sequel to the American classic The Last Picture Show (the first being Texasville).

According to The Collider Jeff Bridges had this to say at the the TRON: Legacy press junket:

“I was just in Texas with Peter [Bogdanovich] and we’re looking at doing the next installment…there’s actually five books that Larry McMurtry wrote about those characters and so we’ve done two and we wanna do the next thing. I don’t know if that’s ever happened before, every 20 years going back and doin’ that. So that’s something I’m hopin’ will come about.”

“Doing [a sequel] with Tron was a wonderful experience, especially having [Steven] Lisberger on board, the guy who wrote it and directed it. And I got to do that with another movie, The Last Picture Show, twenty years later we did Texasville.

The Last Picture Show won Academy Awards for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Ben Johnson) and Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Cloris Leachman). It was also nominated in the categories for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Jeff Bridges), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Ellen Burstyn), Best Cinematography (Robert L. Surtees), Best Director (Peter Bogdanovich), Best Picture (Stephen J. Friedman), and Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium (Larry McMurtry and Peter Bogdanovich).

In 1998, The Last Picture Show was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. It also ranked number 19 on Entertainment Weekly’s list of the 50 Best High School Movies. In 2007, the film was ranked #95 on the American Film Institute’s 10th Anniversary Edition of the 100 greatest American films of all time.
