John Turturro is reprising his role as The Dude’s arch bowling nemesis, Jesus Quintana, in a Lebowski spin-off called Going Places. The top photo is our first look from a movie press release.
The movie is a riff off an older 1970’s french film called La Valseuses. That movie starred a young Gérard Depardieu…neat.
Here’s the synopsis from a press release.
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.
AV Club says that the film doesn’t have a distributor yet, but that it shouldn’t be a problem because there are so many Big Lebowski fan girls and boys who will go see it.
