JESUS! First Look at John Turturro in ‘Big Lebowski’ Spinoff, ‘Going Places’

Jesus is returning, only not in the way evangelicals like to tell you. No, this is the one and only Jesus Quintana, the scene-stealing pederast bowler in The Big Lebowski. He’s starring in his own spinoff of the Coen’s classic, Going Places, and we have our first image, courtesy of IndieWire to get you excited:

Going Places

The purple is back, but I hope he dons the jumpsuit somewhere along the way. As for the synopsis, it sounds appropriately nuts:

“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.”

Going Places also stars Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tatou, and Susan Sarandon (!). Who knows if this will be any good, but it definitely has a chance. It’s based on a 1974 French film, Les Valseuses, which is appropriately weird.

There’s no release date for Going Places yet, but stay tuned.
