Yay! I can't wait!
I'm a huge Coen Bros. fan, but I could never get into Miller's Crossing. I should give it another try. My favorite will always be the Big Lebowski.
I'm a HUGE Coen Bros fan, but between their mother dying and 9/11 their last couple of films really didn't show the same style and substance that they are known for.
All that is about to change:
No Country For Old Men is the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel of the same name. Filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen wrote and directed it for a 2007 release. Production started in May 2006 on location in Texas and New Mexico. The title is from the first line of W. B. Yeats's poem Sailing to Byzantium. The movie first screened in competition at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19, 2007 and will go on general release in the USA on November 9 2007.
Principal Cast & Characters
Tommy Lee Jones as Sheriff Bell
Javier Bardem as Chigurh
Josh Brolin as Llewellyn Moss
Woody Harrelson as Wells
Kelly MacDonald as Carla Jean
The film follows Llewelyn Moss, a husband out hunting near the Rio Grande who comes across a drug deal gone sour — leaving behind a cache of heroin, two million dollars and several bodies. When two more men end up murdered, the local Sheriff realizes Moss and his wife need protection. Things turn dangerous when various men, ranging from ruthless freelancers to ex-Special Forces members, turn up to find out the truth and destroy all evidence.Oh and for the record...my favorite film of theirs is Miller's Crossing although Big Lebowski has a huge spot in my heart as well.Burn After Reading is an upcoming film, set for release in 2008, starring John Malkovich, George Clooney, Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt and made by Joel and Ethan Coen. Malkovich will play Ozzie Cox, a former CIA agent whose soon-to-be ex-wife (Frances McDormand) steals a disc containing his memoirs and accidentally leaves it at the gym where it is found by a trainer (Brad Pitt) who believes he can use the info to blackmail Cox. George Clooney will play an assassin hired by the CIA to take care of the situation. Working Title Films are producing the film for Focus Features. This will be the first Coen brothers film since Millers Crossing not to use Roger Deakins as cinematographer, instead using Children of Men's Emmanuel Lubezki.
It looks like they're back to their more violent ways... I prefer their dark comedies more but the clips I've seen of No Country online look pretty good.
yeah i'm really excited for both. they both sound like they have the potential to be on par with their better films
A Serious Man is an upcoming film, set for release in 2009. Written and directed by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen.
Little is known at the moment other than that it is a 'dark comedy' and that filming will commence after the completion of Burn After Reading, though some preliminary filming has already taken placeHail Caesar is a film from Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, in pre-production as of June 2006. The film is based around a 1920s theater troupe putting on a production of William Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar. Starring George Clooney.
Coen bros and Tommy Lee Jones is like my two favorite things together. I am very excited.
My bands video (It's AWESOME!):
I want to see Jim Jarmusch (or however you spell it) direct a McCarthy adaptation. Dead Man was already practically a McCarthy novel.
