Now, without warning, the unlikely Big Lebowski spinoff is back on its feet. According to a press release from new distributor Screen Media, Going Places, now retitled The Jesus Rolls, will see release next year.
Alongside Turturro, The Jesus Rolls costars Bobby Cannavale (Ant-Man), Audrey Tautou (Amelie), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Susan Sarandon (Feud), and SNL’s Pete Davidson. A summary sounds wild:
The Jesus Rolls follows a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen.
