Coen Brothers Have a Title for Their Musical Biopic

01 September 2011

Both Ethan and Joel Coen have announced the title for their planned musical biopic.

The duo has titled the project Inside Llewyn Davis, and has also scored some funding for the new film.

News emerged a few months ago that the pair were working on a film that was believed to be about the life of American Folk music god Dave Van Ronk. But with the name now surfacing it looks as though the brothers have gone down the road of basing the film on his life rather than making it directly about him.

The basic plot synopsis that has emerged so far is that the film will look at Davies’ struggle in 1960s New York as a folk musician, which directly mirrors the life experience as Van Ronk.

There has been no further news regarding the plot behind this piece of information, but Scott Rudin is on board to produce and StudioCanal Films are co-financing the project.

There are currently no details about the cast or the filming schedule for the film, but hopefully it wont be log until details emerge.
