A First Look at 'The Big Lebowski' Spinoff - Jesus Quintana movie 'Going Places'


This is actually the first I hear of this. A movie spinoff has been shot about The Jesus? You might remember Jesus Quintana from the Coen's "The Big Lebowski." He was such a highlight despite having, what, around 2 or 3 minutes of on-screen time? 'You don't mess with The Jesus.' The above image is the first still to get released from production.

"Going Places" Co-stars Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tatou, and Susan Sarandon, and is inspired by an excellent French film entitled “Les valseuses,” which I caught on French TV many eons ago.  Turtorro is directing, writing and stars in the film, which is currently shooting in NYC. 

According to Variety "Turturro’s version follows a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude backfires time and again. In the French film, Depardieu and Dewaere played young men who travel around France, committing petty crimes and running from the law. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape."

Eight year olds dude.
