Ethan Coen’s new movie is a lesbian roadtrip movie

Half of the influential Coen Brothers directorial team is already retiring to direct a film inspired by 70s teen sex.

Half of the famous filmmaker duo The Coen Brothers, Ethan Coen going solo to direct a lesbian roadtrip movie based on a screenplay he co-wrote with his wife Tricia Cooke. The Coen brothers had been making films together since their teenage years in the 60’s and released their first film, Blood Simple, in 1984 for early recognition, and collaborated on projects until the 2018s That Ballad by Buster Scruggs. That was not until last year Ethan stopped making films to focus on playwritingand his brother Joel made The tragedy of Macbeth alone.

Ethan’s retirement appears to be short-lived. The Hollywood Reporter details that the as yet untitled roadtrip film is based on a script originally written in the mid-2000s and is a “Russ Meyer-inspired action-sex comedy. “The story follows a party girl and her more excited girlfriend on a trip from Philadelphia to Miami, where they cross bars and meet classic Coen oddities like an evil senator, a severed head in a hat box, a mysterious briefcase and a confused ex-girlfriend.

Various actors had been linked to the project over the years, including Holly Hunter, Selma Blair, Christina Applegate and Chloe Sevigny, but no cast has been confirmed at this time. The project is made with Focus Features and Working Title and is ready to film this summer. Like a fellow filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, who “retired” for almost three years, Ethan Coen can apparently not stay away from the film production’s siren song, and the only question is, how will his solo outing compare to his collaborations with his brother?
