John Turturro in 'Going Places'

Turturro wrote, directed and stars in the adaptation of the 1974 film of the same name, alongside Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou and Susan Sarandon.

John Turturro is back as the dancing, loud-mouthed bowler Jesus Quintana in Going Places.

Turturro wrote, directed and stars in the spinoff of the Coen Brothers' 1998 title The Big Lebowski, which he adapted from the 1974 French film of the same name. Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Susan Sarandon and Sonia Braga also star in the dramedy.

The follow-up centers on a trio of misfits whose 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. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen.

Sidney Kimmel, John Penotti, Robert Salerno, Fernando Sulichin, Paul Dominique Vacharasinthu are producing.
