Coens Aim to Tackle New "Country"

by | February 2, 2006 | Comments

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joel & Ethan Coen‘s next film will be an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s "No Country for Old Men." Word is that Tommy Lee Jones will play one of the old men.

"Joel and Ethan Coen are in advanced talks to write, direct and produce an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s 2005 novel "No Country for Old Men." Tommy Lee Jones is in negotiations to star.

Jones will play contemporary Westerner Llewelyn Moss, an antelope hunter who discovers a pile of dead men along with $2 million and a sizable stash of heroin. Violence ensues when Moss decides to play finders keepers. Heath Ledger had been in talks to co-star, but the actor, who withdrew his interest in the project, has said he plans to take "some time off.""

Any Coen-related news is good news, far as I’m concerned. So let’s take this thread as an opportunity to name your favorite Coens flick.

1984: Blood Simple
1987: Raising Arizona
1990: Miller’s Crossing
1991: Barton Fink
1994: The Huduscker Proxy
1996: Fargo
1998: The Big Lebowski
2000: O Brother, Where Art Thou?
2001: The Man Who Wasn’t There
2003: Intolerable Cruelty
2004: The Ladykillers

(Tough decision, but I’m still stickin’ with "Raising Arizona" … or "Miller’s Crossing." I just can’t pick.)
