Jesus Quintana Returns in First Look at ‘The Big Lebowski’ Spin-Off ‘Going Places’

Written by on October 28, 2016 


The caliber of their filmography is virtually unparalleled when it comes to currently working American directors, but there’s one film that has seeped into the culture like no other that the Coens have done: The Big Lebowski. While there has been talk about a follow-up for some time, we are getting one (kind of), but it won’t be from the directing duo.

Instead, John Turturro recently, and quietly, finished production on Going Places, which is both a remake of Bertrand Blier’s 1974 sex comedy Les Valseuses and a Big Lebowski follow-up concerning the new adventures of sex-offending bowler Jesus Quintana.

Turturro once again plays the sensual Latino, who’s now in thieving cahoots with Bobby Cannavale‘s Petey, and the picture finds them competing “to give a woman (Audrey Tautou) her first orgasm after she’s roped into their hijinks.” Susan Sarandon is also part of the cast, playing a recently released criminal involved in their dealings. Now, we have some tangible proof that the film exists as the first still has been unveiled, which can be seen below, along with the synopsis.

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.


Going Places will likely premiere next year.
