The director-star is reprising his role as Jesus Quintana from the Coen Brothers’ cult classic.
Here’s your first look at John Turturro’s return to his Big Lebowski character in Going Places.
The director-star is reprising his role as notable bowler Jesus Quintana from the Coen Brothers’ 1998 cult classic in the dramedy, which started filming in New York in August.
It follows a trio of misfits who make an enemy of a gun-toting hairdresser and have to go on the run from the law, from society and from the hairdresser.
Going Places is based on Turturro’s adapted screenplay inspired by Bertrand Blier’s novel and screenplay for the 1974 film Les Valseuses.
Turturro stars alongside Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Susan Sarandon and Sonia Braga. It is produced by Sidney Kimmel, John Penotti, Robert Salerno, Fernando Sulichin and Paul-Dominique Vacharasinthu.
Bruce Toll, Max Arvelaiz and Michael Lewis are the executive producers on Going Places and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, New Element and Tribus P Film financed it.
