'The Jesus Rolls' by John Turturro will be launched in 2020
'Big Lebowski' spinoff 'The Jesus Roll' that we will see Juan turturro repeat the role of Jesus Quintana It will hit theaters in early 2020.
Screen Media has bought the movie rights.
Written and directed by Turturro, the film also stars Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Jon Hamm, Susan Sarandon and Pete Davidson.
The film follows a trio of misfits whose irreverent and sex-charged dynamics evolve into a love story. However, when the trio makes enemies with an armed hairdresser, their trip becomes one of constant escape from the law.
It feels like a good time to launch a transgressive film about the stupidity of men who try and fail and strive to understand and penetrate the mystery of women, Turturro said in a statement on Monday.
I look forward to working with Screen Media and bringing our work and the character of Jesus to American audiences, Turturro added.
It's an honor to be working with Juan Turturro again. His passion for storytelling and character building is unparalleled, so it goes without saying that people should be excited for the Jesus, said Seth Needle, senior VP acquisitions at Screen Media.
