First things first. You need to watch this trailer. Just that image alone, before you hit play… that’s what started me saying Oh Shit. Because I realized…that’s Denzel. That’s Denzel…in Macbeth.
So that cast + that story + that director = Oh Shit. And I have a feeling this isn’t going to be Hudsucker Proxy Coen, but more like True Grit Coen.
And it’s a singular Coen. Apparently Ethan is, depending on when and who you hear it from, busy working on a play or tired of doing movies or done with making movies altogether. Who knows? Maybe he’s just less of a fan of Shakespeare than his brother. Time will tell. In the meantime…oh shit.
