Everyone’s talking about… The Coen Brothers

Joel and Ethan Coen, the brilliant minds behind No Country For Old Men and The Big Lebowski, are coming to television.

Variety reports that the acclaimed filmmaking duo will make their television debuts with a new series entitled The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.

Details on the series are pretty scant, but it’s understood to be a Western, and may possibly be shown both on television and in cinemas.

It’s still unclear how theatrical distribution could play a part in the project, but the intent is to shoot “Buster Scruggs” as a miniseries. According to sources, the scope of the project seemed too challenging to be covered in one feature film.
