However, Variety reports that the proposed series has now apparently been condensed into a feature film-one that will premiere this fall at the Venice Film Festival, considered a "starting gun" for Oscar season releases. The show was meant to be a six-part anthology series set in the American West.
The project was originally going to be a Western anthology, which would feature six tales about the American frontier told through the voice of Joel and Ethan Coen. Despite its conversion from series to film, the movie still retains its anthology-style narrative.
Tim Blake Nelson (pictured) stars as the eponymous Scruggs. Also in the cast across the stories are the likes of James Franco, Ralph Ineson, Zoe Kazan, Liam Neeson and Brendan Gleeson. Second, they have devoted more of their considerable budget to acquiring and funding largescale film projects by big-name directors, most notably Martin Scorsese's upcoming gangster drama The Irishman.Читайте также: 'Rick and Morty' Creator Dan Harmon Apologizes For Offensive Video
A year ago the Coen Brothers announced they were writing and directing their first-ever TV show - a Western anthology for Netflix called The Ballad of Buster Scruggs - with the archly enthusiastic statement "We are streaming motherf--ers!" Haha. Netflix users will still be able to watch the film when it arrives on the streamer sometime later this year.
"Buster Scruggs" joins the fast-developing year-end glut of prestige productions taking aim at the awards circuit. They can't count on the Academy to do for Scruggs what Sight & Sound' did for Twin Peaks the Return. "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" will also get a limited theatrical release to qualify for Oscar contention.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
