Published Jul 08, 2019Way back in 2016, we learned that John Turturro was resurrecting his Jesus Quintana character for a sort-of sequel to The Big Lebowski. Now, the film has an official release plan.
The film was initially called Going Places, but its title has since changed to The Jesus Rolls. The film was written and directed by Turturro, who will also star.
"It feels like a good time to release a transgressive film about the stupidity of men who try and fail and try better to understand and penetrate the mystery of women," Turturro said in a statement [via Variety]. "I look forward to working with Screen Media and bringing our work and the character of the Jesus to American audiences."
In addition to Turturro, the film will star Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Jon Hamm, Susan Sarandon and Pete Davidson.
The Jesus Rolls will be released in early 2020.
