The film is centered around the El Royale, a Lake Tahoe hotel where seven strangers congregate. The stellar cast flanking Brides includes Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Cynthia Erivo and Bill Pullman. 

Earlier this week, the actor told Variety that he decided to do the motion picture based off the script penned by Drew Goddard, the director of the film.

His co-star Jon Hamm told the outlet he made the movie with ‘such a truly inspiring group of folks to work with,’ singling out Bridges as someone he strived to working with for decades.

‘Especially in the case with Jeff, people I’ve wanted to work with since I was in college or even younger,’ Hamm said. ‘So to get that opportunity, you gotta jump with both feet.’

Erivo, a Broadway standout, echoed similar sentiments, saying, ‘I heard Jeff was part of it, and I was like, well okay, I’m definitely doing it.’

Bridges told Variety he would be amenable to a sequel to his 1998 cult classic, The Big Lebowski, assuming he’s in the film.

He told the publication that he had a number of vivid memories making the lauded Coen brothers film, in which he played the listless slacker known as ‘The Dude.’

Bad Times At The El Royale opens in theaters October 12.
