If you felt The Jesus didn’t get enough screen time in The Big Lebowski, you’re in luck, with John Turturro set to release his spinoff in 2020. Filmed in 2016, the sequel to the Coen Brothers’ cult classic sees Turturro reprise his role as Jesus Quintana, in what he told Variety is “a transgressive film about the stupidity of men who try and fail and try better to understand and penetrate the mystery of women.”
Teasing The Jesus Rolls to The Independent last month, Turturro hints, “It’s basically an exploration of Jesus getting out of jail. It’s a comedy but a very human comedy.”
Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Jon Hamm, Susan Sarandon and Pete Davidson will also star in the movie.
