Big Lebowski Spinoff: The Jesus Rolls [Trailer]

The Jesus Rolls is an American crime comedy film written by, directed by and starring John Turturro, in which Turturro reprises his role as Jesus Quintana from The Big Lebowski.

Set for release in theaters and on demand from Screen Media on March 6, the movie reunites Big Lebowski fans with Jesus Quintana (Turturro) as he teams up with fellow misfits Petey (Bobby Cannavale) and Marie (Audrey Tautou) on a raucous joyride of petty crime.

While Turturro’s character is said to nod heavily to The Big Lebowski, the actor/filmmaker is more directly remaking Bertrand Blier’s 1974 French comedy Going Places, starring Gerard Depardieu and widely considered one of France’s most controversial movies. Turturro’s version of  Going Places  just so happens to now feature “The Jesus” in the leading role.

Jesus Quintana is fresh out of prison and making new friends and enemies among a cast of characters played by Jon Hamm, Susan Sarandon, Christopher Walken, Pete Davidson, and Sonia Braga.
