"You said it, man. Nobody f**ks with the Jesus."

Through the history of film, there are so many minor characters that are deserving of their own spin-off film.

Truth be told, this writer is still waiting for someone to write a biopic about Del Preston from Waynes World II because you just know that there are thousands of amazing stories to be told. After all, the dude beat two people to death with their own shoes and toured with Zeppelin.

Now that's a film we'd pay to see.

On that note, throughout their remarkable career, the Coen Brothers have established themselves as some of the finest writers around and if you look at their back catalogue, there's no such thing as a 'wasted' or 'small' character.

When it comes to The Big Lebowski, this is incredibly true.

Who wouldn't want to hang out with Walter Sobchak? After all, the guy is willing to pull out a gun at a bowling alley over an incorrect scorecard. Elsewhere, there's the group of nihilists who have a ferret for a pet, and Sam Elliott's stranger who just hangs out and offers sage advice.

This being said, there's one man in the cult-classic that managed to steal every scene that he was in.

We're talking about the purple jumpsuit-wearing, bowling ball-licking, and hair net-wearing Jesus Quintana.

For years, it looked like the rumoured spinoff would never get off the ground but dios mio, man, he's back and to paraphrase the world's most colourful bowler, if "you pull any of your crazy shit with us, you flash a piece out on the lanes, I'll take it away from you, and stick it up your ass and pull the fucking trigger 'til it goes click."

Well, the spinoff is going to be called Going Places and in an interview with the Independent, John Turturro said that "it’s a bit of a racy movie. It shows how stupid men are. That’s what the movie is kinda about – the women are the stronger, more together characters. I had to tweak it a little bit but now I feel really good about it. It’s basically an exploration of Jesus getting out of jail [after being framed as a pedophile]. It’s a comedy but a very human comedy.”

The film revolves around three characters and the plot has previously been described as follows "an 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.”

In addition to Turturro, the cast includes Audrey Tautou and Bobby Cannavale.

At present, a release date for the film has not yet been set. It's expected that Turturro will debut Going Places later this year at a film festival.
