There have been rumors circling around a possible The Big Lebowski sequel for months, and the reports are looking closer to being true. According to Birth Movies Death, Jesus Quintana (played by John Turturro) will be getting his own spinoff of the classic 1998 comedy.

The news hasn't been confirmed yet, but the website claims Turturro is a week or two into production in New York on a film called Going Places. The reported spinoff will actually double as a remake of the 1974 French comedy Les Valseuses, which follows two thieves who compete with each other to give a lucky lady her first orgasm. 

As of now, there is no word if Turturro is directing the spinoff or if original Coen Brothers are a part of the project. But Jeff Bridges, who played "The Dude," revealed last month that he supports a sequel idea.

“I’m hoping they make a little Lebowski [sequel] because it’s all set up,” Bridges told Business Insider. “I impregnated Maude [Julianne Moore]. As The Stranger [Sam Elliott] says, ‘There’s a little Lebowski on the way,’ you know?”

The news comes after David Huddleston (the actual "Big" Lebowski) passed away at 85 years old last week. To refresh your memory on the cult film, check out this classic scene featuring Jesus below:
