Coen brothers next film set in ancient RomeDec 04 2013

In a recent interview, the Coen brothers revealed that their next movie will be "a sandal movie" set in ancient Rome.

Right now, the brothers are plainly excited about what they're writing, which they proudly explain, is set in ancient Rome. It's the allure of the unexpected, all over again.

"It's like: Would you ever do a sandal movie?" laughs Joel. "It's big," says Ethan, grinning. "We're interested in the big questions. And we don't (expletive) around with subtext. This one especially."

Though their movies usually revel in the absurdity of life's predicaments, Ethan promises this film has answers: "It's not like our piddly 'A Serious Man.'" Chimes Joel: "That was a cop-out. We just totally chickened out on that one."

Oh cripes, Fargo to be a TV seriesSep 25 2012

FX is developing a TV show "loosely based" on the Coen brothers' Fargo.

Joel and Ethan Coen are bringing one of their signatures movies to television. FX has closed a deal to develop Fargo, an hourlong project loosely based on the Coen brothers' 1996 comedic crime drama. The Coens will serve as executive producers on the project, which will be written/executive produced by The Unusuals and My Generation creator Noah Hawley.

A Serious Man trailerJul 30 2009

The trailer for A Serious Man, a new film from the Coen brothers. According to Wikipedia:

The film is set in St. Louis Park, Minnesota in the year 1967, and is intended in some ways to reflect the childhood of the Coen brothers as they recall it.

This is their first film in quite awhile with no big-name actors...Alan Adam Arkin is the only name I recognize among the cast. I wonder if that contributed to the filming wrapping "ahead of schedule and within budget". (thx, david)

The new Coen Brothers film sounds interesting:Apr 04 2008

The new Coen Brothers film sounds interesting:

Burn After Reading is an upcoming comedy film, set for a September 12, 2008 release, starring John Malkovich, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt, and made by Joel and Ethan Coen. According to the Coens the plot will focus on the world of the CIA, physical fitness in Washington, D.C., and internet dating. The film is the follow up to the Academy Award winning No Country For Old Men and has been described by Tilda Swinton as "...a kind of monster caper movie. All of us are monsters -- like, true monsters. It's ridiculous. It's much lighter than 'No Country for Old Men.'"

From the past weekend's box office: the Coen brothers' No Country For Old Men took in $3.1 million on 148 screens while Tom Cruise's bombtacular Lions for Lambs took in $2.9 million on 2216 screens. Ouch.
