In an era defined by interconnected universes, sequels, and prequels, spin-offs have become an increasingly prevalent sight on the silver screen. That being said, we really never expected that The Big Lebowski would ever receive an offshoot of its very own. It looks like we were wrong. We've just received a look at the upcoming Lebowski spin-off, Going Places, and it appears that Jesus Quintana will once again lace up his bowling shoes. Check out the photo below to see for yourself.
Our first good look at Jesus Quintana from Going Places has just surfaced on Twitter, and it's already abundantly clear that John Turturro's legendary character really has not changed very much since the days of The Big Lebowski. He's still an energetic and oddly charismatic deviant who seems to love thrusting his pelvis in an incredibly expressive manner. And yes, his passion for bowling remains as intense as ever. Was there ever any doubt?
Although The Coen Brothers are not involved in the production of Going Places, John Turturro's status as the film's director and writer bodes incredibly well for the future of Mr. Quintana. Turturro famously created many of Jesus' iconic mannerisms during the production of The Big Lebowski, so the fact that he has taken the creative reins on Going Places seems like a solid indication that the character will soon be fleshed out in some seriously awesome ways.
As long as he's still the same old fast-talking, strike-scoring bowler, we will be happy.
Going Places will reportedly take the mythology of the Jesus in a wildly different direction compared to what we've seen before. The spin-off will center on a trio of sexually promiscuous eccentrics whose reckless attitudes towards basic decency eventually get them into trouble with the law. What follows is a story of life on the lamb as they struggle to escape the wrath of a violent hair stylist. If you thought things were going to become normal after the events of The Big Lebowski, then you were certainly mistaken.
Oddly enough, Going Places serves as both a spin-off and a remake. While the film clearly takes place within the Lebowski universe, it's also a remake of a French film of the same name. In addition to John Turturro, the film also stars Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, and Susan Sarandon.
CinemaBlend will bring you all of the latest and greatest details concerning the upcoming release of Going Places as more information becomes available to us. Jesus Quintana will make his gloriously perverted return to cinemas when the film debuts next year. Stay tuned for more details!
