Ready for the best news of the day, so far? Ethan and Joel Coen talked with the Associated Press yesterday about their careers and their latest film INSIDE LLEYWN DAVIS, and during the conversation the brothers revealed that they are writing a script for a film that will be set in ancient Rome. The duo also said it will be a huge movie.

"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."
"It's not like our piddly 'A Serious Man.'" Chimes Joel: "That was a cop-out. We just totally chickened out on that one. We hadn't grown up," says Ethan. "In that respect, OK, we have matured. We're ready to answer the big questions now."

A film by The Coen Brothers set in ancient Rome that explores big questions? Holy shit, sign me up! Im a huge fan of the siblings, and the idea of the two of them doing a sandal movie gives me a massive movie nerd boner. Seriously, Im going to have to walk this situation off. Im very excited to learn more about this project, and I really hope it will be their next film.

What's with them ragging on A Serious Man? I thought that was a great film.

That said, I am undeniably pumped to see this come to fruition.

I never would've dared to imagine it, but ancient Rome could be the perfect place for the Coens' coal-black sense of humor to run wild. Maybe Burn After Reading on an epic scale.

They're great directors. I'm sure they'll knock this one out of the park like they usually do with all of their films.

I'm always wary about sandal movies, but never wary about The Coens
