It had its world premiere at the Rome Film Festival on October 16, 2019. It is scheduled to be released on February 28, 2020, by Screen Media Films. Like the original Going Places, it follows a trio of sexually depraved misfits, played by John Turturro, Bobby Cannavale and Audrey Tautou.
The Coen brothers, who wrote, directed, and produced The Big Lebowski, stated on several occasions that they would never make a Lebowski sequel. However, John Turturro expressed keen interest in reprising his role as Jesus at least since 2002. Despite not being one of the film’s writers, most of Jesus’ character came from Turturro’s own ideas, which led the Coens to give him a bigger place in the film. In 2014, Turturro announced that he had requested permission from the Coens to use the character.
In August 2016, it was announced that Turturro, after being granted the right to use the character of Jesus by the Coens (who are not involved in the production), had already started filming the spin-off, which he would also write and direct. Filming locations included New York City and Los Angeles. It was also announced the film would be a remake of the 1974 French film Going Places directed by Bertrand Blier, which was itself based on his own novel Les valseuses. The film was originally supposed to be titled 100 Minutes with Jesus before being re-titled Going Places. With its acquisition by Screen Media Films, the film’s title was changed again to The Jesus Rolls.
John Turturro is an Italian American character actor, writer and filmmaker known for his roles in the films Do the Right Thing (1989), Miller’s Crossing (1990), Barton Fink (1991), Quiz Show (1994), The Big Lebowski (1998), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) and Transformers film series. He has appeared in over sixty films and has worked frequently with the Coen brothers, Adam Sandler and Spike Lee.
An Emmy Award winner, Turturro has also been nominated for four Screen Actors Guild Awards and two Golden Globe Awards.
