4) Jesus to come again, perhaps?
No, not the man upstairs but John Turturro who played Jesus Quintana in The Big Lebowski back in 1998. He wants to do a spin off film about Lebowski’s bowling foe. Not bad, but then you remember that according to Walter he spent six months in jail for exposing himself to an 8 year old. How do you sell that film? Time will tell as he was merely talking at the Taormina Festival. The main attraction of the festival was to honour Jim Gianopulos who helped make and distribute such films as Avatar, X-Men, Borat, Titanic and Planet of the Apes.
If Turturro can get legal clearance he may direct himself as the Coen Brothers are most definitely out, having said this while doing the promo for Inside Llewyn Davis. Here’s what they’d to say…
John Turturro, who wants it, talks to us incessantly about doing a sequel about his character Jesus. He even has the story worked out, which he’s pitched to us a few times, but I can’t really remember it…No, I don’t see it in our future.
