Actor John Turturro writes and stars in a new movie based around the famous ‘Jesus’ in a new spin-off of The Big Lebowski!
The new film is inspired by the 1974 French comedy Les Valseuses. A still photograph from the upcoming film shows the Dude’s biggest bowling rival, Jesus Quintana, sporting a jazzy shirt and his trademark dreads and bling.
“A trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude toward 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.”
The Coen Brothers have given their blessing for Turturro to write and direct the project, which will be named ‘Going Places’. No screen date as of yet but Grintage will keep you posted!
