John Turturro's role as Jesus Quintana was one of the many memorable scenes in The Big Lebowski.

In a new interview with The Independent, Turturro reveals that he's completed a spinoff based off Quintana. “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. It’s a comedy but a very human comedy,” he said.

“It’s a bit of a racy movie," Turturro added. "It shows how stupid men are. That’s what the movie is kinda about – the women are the stronger, more together characters.”

Turturro received support from the Coen brothers on the project. "They’re [Joel & Ethan Coen] my friends, close friends, and were supportive when I said I wanna explore this character more. They said, you gotta do it cos we’re not doing it!" he said.

Titled Going Places, no release date has been announced at the moment.
