    FX Developing Charlie Kaufman-Penned Series 'How & Why,' Greenlit Coen Brothers-Produced 'Fargo' Series

    While the name HBO has become synonymous with quality television, the last few years have seen rival network FX catch up in a big way. The network might only be on basic cable, and it might air the terrible Charlie Sheen vehicle "Anger Management," but in "Justified," "Archer" and "The Americans," i...

    5 Things You Might Not Know About The Coens' Cult Classic 'The Big Lebowski'

    Aside from perhaps "The Ladykillers" (and even that film features a great Tom Hanks performance, at least), it's hard to find at least one Coen Brothers movie that doesn't have passionate supporters that declare it the best thing the directing duo ever made. From debut "Blood Simple" to the recent m...

    5 Things You Should Know About The Making Of 'No Country For Old Men'

    At the start of 2007, the Coen Brothers were not in a good place in their careers. Even after the major success of "O Brother Where Art Thou" and the critical acclaim of "The Man Who Wasn't There," they weren't able to get their Brad Pitt-starring adaptation of James Dickey's WWII novel "To the Whit...

    Review: Coen-Derived Caper Comedy 'Gambit' Features A Game Colin Firth, But That's About It

    Of all the genres to try and pull off, the romantic caper flick -- think "To Catch A Thief," or "Charade," or even "Ocean's Eleven" -- is one of the trickiest. For such a film to work out, it's got to be as light as a feather and feel entirely effortless, and all too many films aiming to hit that sw...

    FX Confirmed To Bring 'Fargo' Series To TV, Coen Brothers To Executive Produce

    It seems in their attempt to get themselves out of bankruptcy, and use their back catalog for everything its worth, MGM holds nothing sacred. The studio has struck a deal with FX to create a dramatic series based on the Coen Brothers’ seminal 1996 film “Fargo.”

    Joel & Ethan Coen Team With 'Cedar Rapids' Writer Phil Johnston For Fox TV Show 'HarveKarbo'

    No, We Don't Understand What's Going On Either The Coen Brothers have always delighted in evading expectations. Enjoy our dark film noir debut "Blood Simple?" Why not try our live-action Looney Tunes follow-up "Raising Arizona." Impressed by our multi-Oscar-nominated "Fargo?" Here's a stoner detective movie about bowling and German porn stars! We've finally reached mainstream success after the Best Picture-winning "No Country For Old Men" and the star-studded "Burn After Reading?" Let's make a dense, oblique Jewish period piece without a single recognizable face...

    Coen Brothers Going The Indie Route With 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

    After the runaway success of "True Grit," which nabbed a quarter of a billion dollars worldwide, you'd figure Joel and Ethan Coen would cash in their chips with a major studio, try to get something expensive made, or force the major studios to pony up prior to shooting. The Coens haven't operated independently for awhile, as a distributor has been in place for their last few films before the project was even shot. This time, however, the brothers are doing something different: out of the Toronto International Film Festival, the rumor is that the Coens' latest, "Inside Llewyn Davis," will be filmed without a domestic distributor attached, with...
