FIRST LOOK: John Turturro is back as Jesus Qunitana in The Big Lebowski spin-off ‘Going Places’

October 29th, 2016 by Marc Comments


While we have long given up on our dream of a sequel to The Big Lebowski, we needn’t fully despair.

We’ve known for a while (here) that there was a spin-off in the works based on the character Jesus Quintana played by  John Turturro in the Coen brothers’ classic movie and now we have not only a first look (above), but a synopsis too.

The movie will be called Going Places and will be directed by Turturro himself and will also star Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou and Susan Sarandon, so the talent is all there but can they capture the magic of Joel and Ethan Coen’s arguable beast movie? Well, that’s a helluva ask so we’ll settle for something worthy of the name.

Anyway, here’s the synopsis and we’ll keep you posted as and when news breaks.

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
