Break out your purple bowling jumpsuit, because The Jesus is back.
John Turturro is bringing back his Jesus Quintana character from 1998’s The Big Lebowski. Quintana is a loud-mouth opponent of the bowling league team that includes the characters played by Jeff Bridges, John Goodman and Steve Buscemi. Quintana spoke with a thick accent, danced backwards and referred to himself as “the Jesus.”
Turturro is directing, starring and wrote the screenplay, inspired by a 1974 French film, Going Places. The sequel began shooting this past summer.
Turturro’s version follows a trio of misfits who make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser.
No word if ‘The Dude’ will have a part in this sequel.
