Coen Brothers' next film gets a title and description

The last time we wrote something about the Coen brothers, it was February and we were reporting that the duo was working on a "full-on horror script."

That may have been true, but it turns out that's not going to be their next film, unless they're making a folk music slasher.

According to Variety, their new movie will be titled INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, which follows a folk singer by that name as he navigates the music scene of the 1960s. It's rumored to be a fictionalized account of the life story of singer Dave van Ronk, but will have a few changes to be sure.

The film will feature live music from a singular instrument and have "naturalistic" dialogue for authenticity.

It may not have the trademark violence of a few of their past few films, but it's the Coens, so they can surely make folk music interesting, right?

Extra Tidbit: I hope they still end up doing this horror project as well.

If Darren Aronofsky can make an interesting movie about ballet, then the Coen Brothers can make an interesting movie about folk music.

I have nothing but faith in anything the Coens decide to do. Even their lesser efforts (except The Ladykillers) are solid movies, and when they hit one out of the park, it usually ends up on my all-time favorites list.

Meh...

I tend to find musical biopics- even mostly fictional ones- don't have a strong shelf life. I'm sure it'll be enjoyable for one or two viewings but it won't have the legs of other Coen Bros. films.

Sounds good to me. I almost imagine this will be the Coen's version of a Woody Allen movie. Sweet and Lowdown could almost be a Coen Brothers movie.
