Praise Jesus (Quintana) -- the first photo from the "Big Lebowski" spinoff movie "Going Places" is here!
The image was released today, along with an official synopsis, and John Turturro's iconic characters is doing what he loves: bowling. Whether he still licks the bowling balls is unknown, but Jesus clearly still enjoys rocking purple outfits.
Joel and Ethan Coen have been adamant about not making a "Big Lebowski 2," but they gave their blessing to Turturro to create a spinoff film, especially since the character of Jesus was Turturro's idea. He wrote, directed, and stars in "Going Places," which is actually a quasi-remake of Bertrand Blier's 1974 French film "Les valseuses."
Here's the official synopsis:
John Turturro plays Jesus Quintana in GOING PLACES, a film about a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen.
Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, and Susan Sarandon star alongside Turturro. It currently does not have a release date.
