Could our two heroines ride again for a special anniversary road trip?
It’s been 25 years since Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon made the ultimate female road trip movie, Thelma and Louise, so what better way is there to celebrate this milestone than by taking the pair back out on the road?

Davis has said that she and co-star Sarandon are currently thinking of things to do to celebrate a quarter of a century since the film’s release.
"There's still so much affection for the movie and we loved it," Davis says. "It seems like there should be some girl power celebrating going on.”
Together the real life friends have come up with an idea for a "live show or a tour.” However Davis says they're still trying to figure out "what's possible" but does add that "people seem to like the idea.”
Since the film’s release the actress has founded the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, a research-based organisation that promotes more diverse female characters in entertainment.
"There certainly are still great roles that come along that we see women in," Davis said. "But we're not seeing a wealth of female characters and we're not seeing films that are populated by women.”
She hopes that the 25th anniversary of the groundbreaking film will remind Hollywood "that it's possible to make a movie that's a cultural landmark starring women.”
The film was nominated for six Academy Awards in 1991, including best actress for both Davis and Sarandon and best director for Ridley Scott. Screenwriter Callie Khouri took home the award for best original screenplay.
In 2011 Davis and Sarandon reunited to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary. Then the celebrations included a Vanity Fair spread commemorating the film as well as a special edition Blu-ray.
