It’s common knowledge that the Coen Brothers’ next feature is Burn After Reading, starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Frances Macdormand. The synopsis from IMDB: “A disk containing the memoirs of a CIA agent ends up in the hands of two unscrupulous gym employees who attempt to sell it.”
And then comes Hail Caesar, about a 1920’s theater troupe staging a production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. That stars Tim Blake Nelson.
But what’s this breaking news? The Coens will then jump into another adaptation of a celebrated novel! They’re going to direct…Michael Chabon’s The Yiddish Policemen’s Union!
