As rumored previously after the Stella Artois commercial that premiered during the 2019 Super Bowl, this is not a sequel to The Big Lebowski, and both Jeff Bridges and John Goodman will not be in the movie, nor will the Coen Brothers have any hand in the production, although they did give Turtur permission to use his character in a spinoff movie.
Cast members that will be in Jesus Rolls include Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Jon Hamm, Susan Sarandon, and Pete Davidson.
The movie is being produced by Robert Salerno, John Penotti, Fernando Sulichin, Sidney Kimmel, and nd Paul-Dominique Win Vacharasinthu – along with being produced by Max Arvelaiz, Lawrence Kopeikin, Michael Lewis, Bruce Toll, and Robert S. Wilson.
In a statement, Turturro said, "It feels like a good time to release a transgressive movie about the stupidity of men who try and fail and try better to understand and penetrate the mystery of women. I look forward to working with Screen Media and bring our work and the character of the Jesus to American audiences. ”
