The Coen Brothers Line Up Next Movie

by at . Comments

The Coen Brothers have hired Michael Stuhlbarg, a Tony-nominated actor, and Richard Kind (best known for sitcom Spin City) to star as brothers in their new period black comedy, The Serious Man.

Set in 1967, the movie centers on Larry Gopnik (Stuhlbarg), a Midwestern professor whose life begins to unravel when his wife leaves him and his socially inept brother (Kind) won't move out of the house.

Shooting will begin next month in Minneapolis. On September 12, meanwhile, Brad Pitt and George Clooney lead an all-star cast in the Coen's next movie, Burn After Reading.
