We haven't seen the last of the Jesus, which makes sense since nobody f*cks with him. 

John Turturro's latest film GOING PLACES, which he's currently in production on, apparently will see the actor reprising his role from THE BIG LEBOWSKI in a spin-off of sorts.

According to Birth.Movies.Death, Turturro is directing this remake of the 1974 French comedy LES VALSEUSES from a script he also penned. The original features two thieves competing against one another to give a woman her first orgasm as she gets intertwined with their shenanigans. One of those thieves will be Turturro's Jesus Quintana. The other will be played by Bobby CannavaleAudrey Tautou will serve as the female lead at the center of their contest, and Susan Sarandon rounds out the cast as a fellow criminal fresh out of the joint.

Joel and Ethan Coen are not creatively involved with GOING PLACES, but given Turturro's desire to revisit the character in the past and his history with the Coen brothers, it's hard to believe they wouldn't have given him their blessing to use the character as such. For fans of THE BIG LEBOWSKI, this really ties the room together, man.
