The Coen Brothers Are Working on an Old Hollywood Movie

HOLLYWOOD, CA - NOVEMBER 14:  Directors Ethan Coen (L) and Joel Coen attend the AFI FEST 2013 presented by Audi Closing Night Gala Screening of "Inside Llewyn Davis" at the TCL Chinese Theatre on November 14, 2013 in Hollywood, California.  (Photo by David Livingston/Getty Images)

According to Deadline, the Coen Brothers have fixed on a next project, and it is … Hail Caesar, about a studio fixer in 1950s Hollywood. The man in question is named Eddie, and not Caesar, so — just a guess here — maybe this movie has something to do with the sandal drama they were talking about a few months back? Or maybe they are the Coen Brothers and they have ideas for, like, 40 different movies written on notecards, just waiting for the mood to strike. Either, really.
