John Turturro Wants To Direct a Big Lebowski Spin-Off

John Turturro is trying to bring everyone’s favorite (alleged) pederast, Jesus “The Jesus” Quintana, back to the big screen. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the actor mentioned this possible project while speaking at the Taormina Film Festival in Sicily. He explained that he was working on securing the legal rights to reprise his famous role from The Big Lebowski.

Before we start speculating on whether this would be a dream project or an atrocity, here’s exactly what he said:

“If I can get the permission I need, I’d like to return to that role.”

That’s it. This could be complete wishful thinking on Turturro’s part or just an offhanded remark that he didn’t expect to be recorded. Who knows?

so you're telling me there's a chance

This is too heavy to start thinking about right now. I’m still trying to figure out if I’m excited or terrified for Breaking Bad‘s spin-off Better Call Saul. Now I’ve got to deal with one of my favorite movies getting a surprise semi-sequel too?
