The Coens: Out With The Old, In With The New?

No Country For Old Men is to premiere at Cannes; Burn Before Reading - and my best info maintains Before, not After - will start shooting in the late summer; A Serious Man is scheduled to start filming afterwards.

Both Serious and Burn are financed in the same two-picture deal between Focus and Working Title.

So what happened to Hail Caesar! and Suburbicon? Are they gone forever? And what about their untitled comedy about the Itallian catwalk model? It's reasonable to speculate that A Serious Man is, in fact, one of these previously touted projects under a new name. Both of the named projects were definitely about serious men. But then again... there's been such a long break since the last original Coen script that a few may have stockpiled in the meantime.

My best info suggests that George Clooney's role in Burn is as an asassin while Brad Pitt's role is as a personal trainer. I'm still digging for more...
