Jesus Returns in First Big Lebowski Spin-Off Set Photo

22 August 2016 5:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a report surfaced that actor/director John Turturro's new film Going Places is actually a Big Lebowski spinoff, with the actor returning as Jesus Quintana. The film was already said to have started shooting in New York City, which is essentially a remake of 1974 French film Les Valseuses centering on his Jesus character, with Bobby Cannavale, Susan Sarandon and Audrey Tautou also set to star. Today we have the first photo from the set with John Turturro as Jesus, thanks to one of the actor/director's co-stars.

Susan Sarandon shared this photo on Instagram, with the brief caption, "The Man. John Tuturro on location. Love you." The actress also tagged the location as "The Sands at Lido Beach" in Lido Beach, New York, which is situated between Queens and Long Island. John Turturro is also directing this spinoff from his own script, which follows two thieves, John Turturro »

Jesus Quintana Is Back In First Look At John Turturro’s The Big Lebowski Spinoff

22 August 2016 4:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Consider it a rumor no more – John Turturro’s The Big Lebowski spinoff, which entered development inconspicuously last week bearing the title Going Places, is officially a thing with a new set pic showcasing the actor reprising the role of Jesus Quintana.

Once believed to be little more than a hopeful pipe dream – neither the Coen brothers nor Jeff Bridges appeared to be very interested in the offshoot – it looks as though the perseverance of Turturro has paid dividends, with the official teaser revealing that said feature will center on “two petty thieves, Turturro’s Jesus and Cannavale’s Petey, who compete to give a woman (Tautou) her first orgasm after she’s roped into their hijinks. Sarandon also ends up in their company, playing a criminal who just got out after a long stint in prison.” Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou and Susan Sarandon are also on board.

22 August 2016 6:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eight-year-olds, dude.

The first photo of pederast and ace bowler Jesus Quintana has officially surfaced since news broke that the character played by John Turturro in the Coen brothers’ “The Big Lebowski” was finally getting his own spinoff movie, “Going Places.” Birth.death.movies broke the news earlier this month that the film was already a few weeks into production, and on Friday, actress Susan Sarandon posted an Instagram of Turturro reprising the role.

John Turturro’s Going Places reportedly a Big Lebowski spinoff

20 August 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For several years now, John Turturro has been talking about the possibility of a spinoff from the Coen brothers’ 1998 classic The Big Lebowski, and it seems it may be happening right now.

Turturro has recently started shooting Going Places, a remake of the 1974 French film Les Valseuses, and Birth.Movies.Death is reporting that its actually the long-rumoured spinoff, with Turturro reprising the role of Jesus Quintana.

The film sees Turturro starring alongside Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou and Susan Sarandon, and reportedly follows “two petty thieves, Turturro’s Jesus and Cannavale’s Petey, who compete to give a woman (Tautou) her first orgasm after she’s roped into their hijinks.”

John Turturro in Production on ‘Big Lebowski’ Spinoff ‘Going Places’

18 August 2016 12:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

John Turturro has started shooting the dramatic comedy “Going Places” in what’s believed to be a spin-off of the Coen brothers’ “The Big Lebowski.” The project is currently filming in New York.

Turturro is directing, starring and wrote the screenplay, inspired by the 1974 French film “Going Places” (Les Valseuses), which starred Miou-Miou, Gérard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere, directed by and based on the novel by Bertrand Blier.

As with the French film, (the French title is slang for “the testicles”) Turturro’s version follows a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude backfires time and again. In the French film, Depardieu and Dewaere played young men who travel around France, committing petty crimes and running from the law. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape.

John Turturro Set To F--- With The Jesus

18 August 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In the 7-10 split of having your cake and eating it too, John Turturro is trying for a spare. Which is to say, after nearly two decades of zealous celebration over his scene-stealing (and very small) performance in The Big Lebowski as the crotch-swaddling bowling-ball licker Jesus Quintana, he's doubling down on that legacy and directing a feature film that stars Jesus at the wheel. After a few years of Turturro's titters, he's finally making his own spinoff movie, Going Places, and he's already in production.

Currently starring in HBO's The Night Of, a very different kind of crime story, Turturro reprises his role as Jesus Quintana alongside a cast including Bobby Cannavale, Susan Sarandon, and Audrey Tautou. Notably absent from this project are the original creators of the role themselves, the Coen Brothers, but perhaps they'll attach their names as producers as they have for their last grand-brainchild, FX's Fargo. »

Big Lebowski spin-off movie starring John Turturro's Jesus may be in production

18 August 2016 2:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sources suggest that Turturro’s Going Places, currently shooting in New York, marks rebirth of sex pest bowling character from the Coen brothers’ classic

The long-awaited return of Jesus may be upon us sooner than expected. The website Birth Movies Death reports that the John Turturro film Going Places, currently shooting in New York, is a vehicle for Jesus Quintana, Turturro’s character from the Coen brothers’s 1998 classic, The Big Lebowski.

Going Places had been thought to be a remake of 1974 French caper Les Valseuses, in which two petty crooks (to be played by Turturro and Bobby Cannavale) rope a woman (Audrey Tautou) into their schemes. Susan Sarandon is thought to play an ex-con who also joins the gang.

The Big Lebowski spin-off is apparently just a couple of weeks into production.

John Turturro is currently in New York State filming a new movie entitled Going Places, but sources over at Birth.Movies.Death are are reporting that the film is actually a spin-off from The Big Lebowski featuring Turturro’s popular character Jesus Quintana.

The indie flick, which also stars Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou and Susan Sarandon, is actually a remake of the 1974 comedy Les Valseuses which starred Gérard Depardieu. Here’s the official synopsis of that particular movie:

Jean-Claude (Gérard Depardieu) and Pierrot (Patrick Dewaere) are crooks. They’re not experts, but they’re competent enough to make their way through France by knocking over stores and lifting cars. They also have plenty of sexual conquests, including one with the young, »

‘Big Lebowski’ Spinoff ‘Going Places’ Already Shooting, with John Turturro Directing and Starring as The Jesus

17 August 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Remember how John Turturro has been wanting to make a spinoff to “The Big Lebowski” centered around his character The Jesus for years now? Well, it turns out he’s already a few weeks into production on the project, which once carried the working title of “100 Minutes with Jesus” but is now known as “Going Places.” Birth.Movies.Death. first reported the news.

Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou and Susan Sarandon all feature in the film as well, with an off-color premise inspired by Bertrand Blier’s 1974 “Les valseuses.” Cannavale stars opposite Turturro as a fellow thief named Petey, with the two vying to give a woman (Tautou) her first orgasm; Sarandon completes the foursome as a criminal recently released from prison. That certainly sounds like something the Jesus would do, though Tautou might be a little old for him. »

Big Lebowski Jesus Spin-off Secretly Shooting in New York?

17 August 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Coen Brothers are not known for making sequels to their movies, and have made it quite clear that the prospect doesn't interest them very much. But that doesn't mean we won't ever see some of their beloved characters return. In fact, we may finally be seeing some characters from The Big Lebowski make their way back to the big screen in the near future. How, you may ask? Well, It looks like a new spinoff movie involving John Turturro's character Jesus Quintana is currently being filmed in New York.

A new report from Birth.Movies.Death claims that the movie Going Places, which he is currently filming and is said to be a remake of a 70s French movie, is actually a Big Lebowski spinoff. The script was reportedly written by Turturro himself, and he has assembled a cast that includes Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou and Susan Sarandon. »

'The Odyssey' to close San Sebastian

12 August 2016 5:24 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Biopic based on the life of Jacques Cousteau.

The 64th San Sebastian Festival (Sept 14-24) is to close with the world premiere of The Odyssey, a film based on the life of Jacques Cousteau, written and directed by Jérôme Salle.

The €35m film looks at the challenging relationship between the underwater exploration pioneer and his son Philippe. The screenplay is based on the books Mon père, le Commandant Jacques-Yves Cousteau, by Jean Michel Cousteau, and Capitaine de la Calypso, by Albert Falco.

Salle is perhaps best known for writing action romance The Tourist, starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, and directing both Cannes 2013 closer Zulu and César-nominated Anthony Zimmer, which starred Sophie Marceau.

The Odyssey stars Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney and Audrey Tautou in the parts of Cousteau, his son Philippe and his wife, respectively.

Wilson’s, known for performances in Xabier Beauvois’ Of Gods and Men and André Téchiné’s Rendez-vous, will make his »

World Premiere of Wild Bunch-Sold ‘The Odyssey’ Closes San Sebastian

12 August 2016 3:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Starring Lambert Wilson (“Of Gods and Men”), Pierre Niney (“Yves Saint Laurent”) and Audrey Tautou (“Amelie), Jerome Salle’s Wild Bunch-sold “The Odyssey” will world premiere at San Sebastian, closing this year’s festival.

A film on the life of deep-sea explorer Jacques Cousteau, structured around his troubled relationship with his son, Philippe, “The Odyssey” charts not only Cousteau’s game-changing discovery of life at the bottom of the ocean, and near unique ability to communicate his excitement to others, but his halting understanding of the importance of his own family. Boasting a stellar French cast, six-time Cesar-nominated Lambert plays Cousteau, Tautou, star of multiple other French films such as “A Very Long Engagement,” limns his wife. Niney, regarded by many as the finest actor of his generation, portrays son Philippe.

A director of ambitious, big-canvas French movies, Salle’s latest movie, “Zulu,” toplining Orlando Bloom and Forest Whitaker, »

Review: ‘Microbe and Gasoline’ Is Michel Gondry At His Least Whimsical

29 June 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 2008, the satirical website The Onion published a story entitled “Michel Gondry Entertained For Days By New Cardboard Box,” poking a bit of fun at the French filmmaker’s ability to find whimsy and imagination in the most unexpected of places. That Gondry’s movies revel in the fantastic and often eschew anything resembling the cynical is hardly news, but that he’s continued to invest himself in the creation of those kind of films (save for that brief foray into superhero fare with “The Green Hornet”) is certainly worth pointing out on a regular basis.
