Reeves’ The Batman is slated for release in summer 2021, but you won’t have to wait that long to catch Turturro on the big screen again. His self-written, directed, and starring, spin-off to The Big Lebowski is expected to see a nationwide release early next year.

And in other Frank Miller news, the comic book legend’s Sin City franchise is getting the adapted for TV, with Robert Rodriguez in talks to reprise his directorial role. However, a timeline for production has yet to be revealed.
