The Coen Brothers to Tackle Horror Next?

Though they’ve dabbled in the darker side of cinema for many years with films like Blood Simple, No Country for Old Men, Fargo, etc., the directing team of Joel and Ethan Coen have never done a full-on horror movie. That may just be changing.

When asked if they would ever make a horror film during an interview with Empire Online, Ethan Coen responded to the idea quite favorably.

Funny you should ask,” replied the co-director. “Yes, we’re working on a couple of scripts now, one of which it would be fair to call a full-on horror movie. Frances McDormand is the monster.”

Considering Frances is married to brother Joel, take that last part with a grain of salt, but even so, given the talent of these two, we couldn’t ask for anything more and consider this to be the best news of the day so far! Bring on the horror, guys! We know you have it in you!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    The Coens have already made a horrifying film. It was called True Grit and it was horrifying in the sense that they made a film even worse than the John Wayne version.

      Yep! That does classify as Horror(ible).

          I’m fully aware I’m in the minority, but I don’t get the love for the original, let alone the remake. John Wayne is fantastic and the climax is actually a lot of fun, but I thought everything else was bad, especially Kim Darby. On the other hand, the remake left me feeling empty inside. It wasn’t much fun and while the performances were fine, it was way too close to the original and I felt like I was wasting my time. That being said, I am a John Wayne fan and I consider The Searchers to be one of the best films ever made.
