Another cast member has signed on for Inside Llewyn Davis , Variety reports. Jeanine Serralles will appear opposite Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman in the next film from Joel and Ethan Coen. The project is based on the life of musician Dave van Ronk, part of the folk music scene that hit Greenwich Village in the 1960's. The script is said to be based in part on van Ronk's memoir, "The Mayor of MacDougal Street." At a talk they did earlier this year at the Lincoln Center's new Elinor Munroe Film Center, the brothers told moderator Noah Baumbach that they were working on a musical-based film, which they compared to Baumbach's own film, Margot at the Wedding , and its dialogue and "music [that's] pretty much all performed live, »

The Coen Brothers Offer Justin Timberlake a Role in ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’

29 October 2011 3:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Joel and Ethan Coen are assembling the cast for their new movie, Inside Llewyn Davis, which is based on the '60s folk scene in Greenwich Village, NY. Oscar Isaac landed the title role [1]just a few days ago, and he'll play a guy loosely based on folk singer Dave Van Ronk, whose book The Mayor of MacDougal Street, chronicling his experience in the NYC folk revival, is part of the inspiration for the movie. One of the other major leads could be Justin Timberlake, as the Coens have offered him the role of another folk singer named Jim. Variety [2] has the news on the offer, but doesn't say anything specific about the character Timberlake would play, other than that he is married to a woman named Jean, to be played [3] by Carey Mulligan. Without knowing more about the character we can only surmise that Timberlake's musical ability makes him »

Elizabeth Olsen and Sean Durkin Talk Cults, Paranoia and the Sinister Folk Music of 'Martha Marcy May Marlene'

17 October 2011 11:19 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

On a cold Friday morning in Seattle, overcast skies and still groggy from sleep, I sat down with writer/director Sean Durkin and Elizabeth Olsen, the breakout star of his first feature film, Martha Marcy May Marlene. The film tells the story of a few paranoid weeks after Martha (Olsen) has runaway from a cult in upstate New York as she finds refuge in her sister and brother-in-law's lakeside home in Connecticut. Despite asking, Martha either won't or can't tell her sister where she's been as she is quickly swallowed up by paranoia of what will happen now that she's left. The lines of what's real and what's imagined begin to blur and the audience is left to decide for themselves. What exactly could have drawn Durkin to such a project?

The Coen Brothers Choose Oscar Isaac as the Lead of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’

14 October 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Anyone who has paid attention to the work of Oscar Isaac over the past few years has likely predicted great things for the actor. He's a great presence in Drive, a solid presence in Sucker Punch (fighting against a terrible role) and he's worked with a stable of established big name directors like  Steven Soderbergh, Ridley Scott, and Alejandro Amenábar. Now he's being handed what could end up being a defining role, as Joel and Ethan Coen have chosen him to play the lead role in their music-oriented indie Inside Llewyn Davis. Deadline [1] reports on the deal, saying that the Coens have " the usual number of stars lining up to play characters loosely based on folk singers like Dave Van Ronk and Tom Paxton." We don't know much about the film other than that it focuses on the folk music scene in New York's Greenwich Village in the 1960s. Scott Rudin »

"This is my family and this is hell." Phase 4 Films has debuted a red band (mostly for language) trailer via Deadline for Sam Levinson's indie dramedy Another Happy Day, starring primarily Ellen Barkin, Ezra Miller (from We Need to Talk About Kevin) and Kate Bosworth.

Sounds okay. The supporting cast includes Thomas Haden Church, Demi Moore and Ellen Burstyn, too. Check this out. Watch the official red band trailer for Sam Levinson's Another Happy Day, via Deadline: A marriage at her parents' Annapolis estate hurls high-strung mother Lynn (Ellen Barkin) into the center of touchy family dynamics over the course of the wedding.

Rumor: Noah Baumbach Adapting Jonathan Franzen’s ‘The Corrections’ for HBO

5 September 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Whenever an existing property gets optioned for a new show or series, fans are left to hold their breaths and hope that the adaptation does the source material justice. If rumors of Noah Baumbach signing on for a TV adaptation of Jonathan Franzen's award-winning The Corrections is true, I'm guessing Franzen's fans have nothing to worry about. After all, who could be better suited to bring Franzen's disenchanted suburban family to life than the guy who directed The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, and Greenberg? To add icing on the cake, rumors also suggest that Donald Sutherland and Anthony Hopkins are among the actors eyeing a role in the project. Scott Rudin, who optioned the film rights to the novel a decade ago, is reportedly attached to executive produce. Read more after the jump. According to reports at The Hollywood Reporter [2] and The Daily Mail [3] (via »

Noah Baumbach’s & Scott Rudin’s ‘The Corrections’ Adaptation Nears Pilot Pickup At HBO, Anthony Hopkins Circling

2 September 2011 6:30 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

I hear HBO is nearing a pilot order for The Corrections, a drama series project from filmmaker Noah Baumbach based on Jonathan Franzen’s book of the same name. Top film producer Scott Rudin, who has been  developing the project for a decade, originally as a feature, is executive producing with Baumbach and Franzen, and I hear Anthony Hopkins has expressed interest in playing the male lead and will be meeting with the producers. Baumbach and Franzen co-wrote the adaptation of Franzen’s book, with Baumbach also attached to direct. Franzen’s 2001 novel, which won the National Book Award and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, revolves around the troubles of an elderly Midwestern couple and their three adult children, tracing their lives from the mid-twentieth century to “one last Christmas” together near the turn of the millennium. Rudin and Baumbach have worked together on 4 features, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, »

Title and Details Revealed for Coen Brothers’ ’60s Folk Film

31 August 2011 8:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Like so many film geeks, I'm an ardent admirer of the Coen Brothers (obviously [2]), so I'm thrilled to reveal that a couple of interesting new tidbits have dropped about their next feature. Earlier this summer, the Coens revealed that their next movie would be based on the '60s folk scene in New York's Greenwich Village, and apparently that project is starting to come together. A recent announcement that StudioCanal would be co-financing and handling international sales for the film revealed the title, as well as slightly more detail about the plot. Read more after the jump. Variety [3]reports that the film will be called Inside Llewyn Davis. The script, written by the Coens, follows musician Llewyn Davis as he navigates the folk scene in 1960s New York City. Scott Rudin is set to produce the picture with Robert Graf as executive producer. The combination of Rudin, Graf, and the »

Spc Searches for 'Darling Companion'

27 July 2011 12:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Sony Pictures Classics knows their market well. Loaded with a cast of actors who were ripe back in the 70's (Keaton, Kline, Shepard, Wiest and Richard Jenkins whose career really took off in the last decade), Spc have picked up Lawrence Kasdan's Darling Companion and have set it for their 2012 slate. We initially thought the ensemble drama would preem at this year's Tiff,  but has its currently still in post, we're now beginning to think that unless they adopt a "Kids Are All Right" model (preem at Sundance, issue middle of the summer) then we might only be seeing this in 12 months from now.  Gist: This is the story of a woman who loves her dog more than her husband. And then her husband loses the dog. On a wintry day, Beth (Keaton) saves a bedraggled lost dog from the side of the freeway. Struggling with her distracted, self-involved »

Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult” gets awards-friendly December date

26 July 2011 4:46 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Adam Frazier

Hollywoodnews.com: We’re picking up a few more details on “Young Adult,” which reunites “Juno” director Jason Reitman with screenwriter Diablo Cody, and stars Charlize Theron and comedian Patton Oswalt.

The story follows a young adult author (Theron) who returns to small-town Minnesota in the hopes of reclaiming her happy youth — and her now-married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). But things don’t go as planned, and she instead forms an unusual bond with another former classmate (Oswalt).

Reitman’s film will be launched by Paramount in a limited run on Dec. 9, with an eye toward an awards-season run. That will be followed by a nationwide release on Dec. 16, THR reports.

Young Adult,” which also stars Elizabeth Reaser and Reitman alum J.K. Simmons, has Academy Award buzz written all over it. Reitman has already received four Academy Award nominations in his six years as a feature filmmaker, »

The Coen Bros. Tackle the Tale of a NYC Folk Music Legend

27 June 2011 2:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Coffeehouse folk culture maven Dave Van Ronk is getting the Coen Brothers treatment. His story will be loosely adapted for a song-savvy screen tale that the True Grit directors are comparing to Noah Baumbach's Margot at the Wedding. The New York City folk icon rubbed elbows with songbirds like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Phil Ochs – promoting and mentoring them throughout the '60s. The Coens will also apparently focus on retelling his left-wing political activist efforts (Van Ronk was arrested during New York's Stonewall Riots) and his own career as an accomplished guitarist. Also known as the Uncle of Greenwich Village, Van Ronk – who passed away in 2002 – posthumously published his memoir in 2005 with collaborator Elijah Wald, called The Mayor...

The Coen Brothers Planning Biopic on New York Folk Legend Dave Van Ronk

27 June 2011 6:01 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Although they wrote the script for the upcoming Gambit remake that is currently in production right now, The Coen Brothers are not directing the heist flick themselves. Instead they are hard at work prepping their follow-up to True Grit, and although they've been somewhat tight-lipped about it, details are slowly starting to leak out. Earlier this month they revealed that their next film would focus heavily on music, and that it would potentially involve shooting a lot of live music. Since then, we have also learned that the movie will be set in New York City and that it will be about the folk scene from the 1960s as told from the perspective of one of the scene's most important founding fathers: folk and blues guitarist Dave Van Ronk. Dave Van Ronk was a key figure in the Greenwich Village coffeeshop scene of the '60s, and although he was »

Coen Brothers Talk Musical Biopic

27 June 2011 2:57 AM, PDT | LOVEFiLM | See recent LOVEFiLM news »

Joel and Ethan Coen have plans to take on a musical biopic focussing on the life of American folk musician Dave Van Ronk.

The Coens originally announced to The Playlist that their next project would be “a movie that has quite a bit of music in it,” and now the La Times seems to have picked up more information.

The film is set to focus on Van Ronk's later life when he came to the Greenwich Village music scene in the sixties. The Coens are said to want to use material from Van Ronk’s memoir, The Mayor of McDougal Street, which was published posthumously in 2005.

Van Ronk, who passed away in 2002 at the age of 66, was famed for his musical expertise – once described as “a walking museum of the blues.”

He paved the way for the Greenwich Village coffeehouse scene, where musicians such as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez were all discovered. »

The Coen Bros. New Script is Based on the 60′s NYC Folk Scene

25 June 2011 11:10 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When Joel and Ethan Coen discussed their films [1] in New York with Noah Baumbach earlier this month, word came out that they are working on a script that is music-related. Now we have the subject of the script: the '60s folk scene in NYC's Greenwich Village, possibly with a specific focus on the life of Dave van Ronk, who was a big part of the Village folk scene at a time when Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan were just emerging as new talents. The La Times [2] says the film is based in part on the book The Mayor of MacDougal Street, a memoir by Dave van Ronk that was published after his death in 2002. That exchange I referenced above went like this: Noah: And you’re working on a movie now that has quite a bit of music in it. Joel: Yeah, but I don’t know that it will have any playback. »

The Coen Bros. Go Folksy, Meloni Joins 'Man of Steel' and a Still Examination of 'Transformers 3'

There were just enough stories left over for a weekend edition of the Movie Morsels column and come to think of it, ending with news of a new Coen brothers film makes it even better than most editions.

Additional Snow White and the Huntsman casting reveals Lily Cole (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) will play a girl by the name of Greta, and Sam Spruell (The Hurt Locker) will play Finn, the Queen's henchman sent to kill the Huntsman (Thor's Chris Hemsworth) and Snow White (Twilight star Kristen Stewart). Chalize Theron plays the queen. The film is expected to go into production this fall with a release date set for June 1, 2012. [Variety]

Joel and Ethan Coen Look to Folk Singer Dave Van Ronk for Next Project

25 June 2011 10:24 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Joel Coen and Ethan Coen had made it known that their next project after True Grit would be music-related, but they offered no other details. Now, an insider has come forward to reveal that the brothers are actually making a movie about the Greenwhich Village folk scene, and that it will be loosely based on singer Dave van Ronk.

Dave van Ronk is considered the patriarch of New York City's burgeoning coffee house scene in the mid-20th Century. He died in 2002, ushering and cultivating many popular acts such as Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Joel Coen and Ethan Coen are believed to be putting together a script from Dave van Ronk's memoir The Mayor of MacDougal Street. It isn't clear why its not being considered a straight-up biopic at this time.

Speaking at New York's Lincoln Center earlier in the month, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen compared their »
