Guess Which Coen Bros. Film Is Becoming a Series?!?!?

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

FX has just inked a deal with the Coen Bros. to bring ‘Fargo’ to series.  This will be an hour-long comedy drama loosely based on the Coen’s comedy-drama film from 1996, which won tons of awards according to Deadline.  The Coen Bros. will be executive producers and be written by Noah Hawley.

Hi Bryan Here….

Ethan Coen and Joel Coen are set to executive produce an hourlong single-camera comedy for Fox, which the two co-created with another feature writer, Phil Johnston (Cedar Rapids). The project, titled HarveKarbo, has received a script commitment with significant penalty from Fox.  How cool is this.  I wonder how hands on the Coens will be on this.

Hi Bryan Here…

Several years ago, the Coen Bros. wrote a script for a remake of “Gambit”.  As of right now, they are not attached in any way, shape, or form to this film, other than their initial script they wrote.  However they already have a director to helm this project which is Michael Hoffman.  He directed the amazing film, “The Station Agent”.

Hi Bryan Here…

The Coen Bros. recently sat down with EMPIRE MAGAZINE for an interview on True Grit, and as usual, the Coen’s were very vague and timid, when asked about upcoming projects.

Brothers Joel and Ethan Coen, writing and directing team that have amassed an immense following for films that are synonymous only by how off-center they are, have targeted their next project now that ‘Hail Caesar!‘ is on the back-legs of it’s journey in the production phase.

Hey guys, Jana here,

The-Coen-brothers-007

 When we’re talking Hollywood, or just about movies in general and someone mentions the Coen’s. Everyone gets a different image in their heads. Some immediately think of Nicolas Cage‘s creepy porn-stache in ‘Raising Arizona‘, others think of the twangy song made popular in ‘O Brother Where Art Thou?‘ (which is currently on my iPod). Still others think of ‘The Dude’ in ‘The Big Lebowski‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Sun_Earth_Moon

I guess someone at Warner Bros. really liked the Coen Bros.The Odyssey‘ adaptation, which was ‘O’ Brother Where Art Thou‘, and thought “Let’s do the complete opposite of that”, meaning instead of having it old-timey, let’s make set in the future and in space.  That’s how I pictured it going down when I heard that Warner Bros. is moving forward with a new adaptation that has Homer’s Odyssey set in outer space.

Streep + Hanks + Spielberg = ‘The Post’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

The first trailer and poster for the film ‘The Post‘ is standing straight up. It’s a big deal, because it has Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in the lead roles with Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair. That’s a powerhouse right there. The film will release on December 22nd, just in time for the holidays, but really, they want to get it in for Oscar consideration. The film releases everywhere next year on January 12. In addition to Hanks and Streep, the film stars Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, and Zach Woods.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

This is definitely on my radar now. Jeff Bridges and Chris Hemsworth, meaning The Dude and Thor are most likely going to star in a new film called Bad Times at the El Royale, which will be directed by Drew Goddard and released by 20th Century Fox. Despite the awesome two actors and the cool title, filmmaker Drew Goddard is one to watch for sure.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

I recently had the pleasure to sit down with actress Hailee Steinfeld to discuss her latest film ‘Edge of Seventeen‘, which is a coming of age movie that is being compared to the best of John Hughes‘ movies. Currently, the film has a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so be sure to catch this movie in theaters this weekend. Prior to this, Hailee starred in the Coen Bros. remake of ‘True Grit‘ with Jeff Bridges, ‘Ender’s Game‘, and ‘Pitch Perfect 2‘ amongst several others. We talked about working with the stellar cast of ‘Edge of Seventeen‘, some High School memories, and her favorite scenes from film. Don’t forget to check out her music too HERE.

Sacha Baron Cohen takes on ‘Mandrake the Magician’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2016
Mandrake

Sacha Baron Cohen who brought Borat to life has a new trick up his sleeve. He will be starring in ‘Mandrake the Magician‘ for Warner Bros., which is an adaptation off the old comic strip. Etan Cohen (not of the Coen Bros.), but of ‘Get Hard‘ and ‘Tropic Thunder‘ fame will direct the film. This project does not currently have a finished script and no other actors have been cast yet, but I suspect these announcements will come soon enough.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

I can’t tell you how excited I am for this remake of ‘The Magnificent Seven‘. I’ve a huge fan of westerns. I wish there was more out there. luckily Quentin Tarantino and The Coen Bros. are making westerns still. You can add to that list Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), who is remaking the 1960 film that starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen.

Film Review: ‘Hail, Caesar!”

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 3rd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

hail-caesar-josh-brolin

It’s always a good time when the Coen Bros. have a new movie in theaters. Film after film, the Coen Bros. have not only told bizarre, funny, violent, musical stories, but have conjured up some of the best characters in movie history. Their uncanny talent for telling stories on film is unrivaled with each movie they make. Their latest endeavor tackles the early years of Hollywood, specifically the year 1951, in a film called ‘Hail, Caesar!‘ that has an A-List cast of Coen regulars and newcomers. Even though the posters and trailers show this A-List cast throughout, the film follows one man, and that is Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), based on the real life Mannix who was a big time producer and  “fixer” at MGM.

Film Review: ‘Bridge of Spies’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 14th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

‘Bridge of Spies’ by DreamWorks Studios.

The year 2015 gives us yet another Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg movie called ‘Bridge of Spies‘ with an added bonus of the Coen Bros. serving as co-writers. Now with a cast and crew like this, I expect something that would live on forever and win all the awards come award season. That’s not really the case here though, as Spielberg’s recent directorial efforts have been lacking a bit. I’m not saying they’re bad, I’m just saying that ‘War Horse‘ and ‘Lincoln‘ were long, slow, dreary period pieces with no real momentum, despite some awards and critical acclaim.

Film Review: ‘Get Hard’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 26th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

get-hard-hart-ferrell-2

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart have teamed up together for their latest comedy project called ‘Get Hard‘ with enough double entendres for two movies. There are a couple of similarities from ‘Trading Places‘ and ‘Nothing To Lose‘ here in ‘Get Hard‘, but nothing really seems genuine or charming enough to remember this film much beyond two minutes after viewing it. Etan Cohen (not to be confused of the Coen Bros.) steps into the director’s seat for the first time, but has written screenplays such as ‘Men In Black III‘, ‘Tropic Thunder‘, and ‘Idiocracy‘. Clearly, he has some writing talent, but with ‘Get Hard‘, it seems like he just let Ferrell and Hart do their own thing, which can be outrageously funny at times, but can also run off on long tangents, which often happens with this movie.
