Ethan Coen Is Lining Up A Great Cast For His First Movie Without Brother Joel

For decades, brothers Ethan and Joel Coen went together like peanut butter and chocolate in the filmmaking world, churning out movies as a duo like Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski and No Country for Old Men. But that era has come to an end, as they’ve now embarked on separate professional paths. Late last year, Joel Coen delivered the Apple TV+ movie The Tragedy of Macbeth to the masses, and now Ethan Coen is lining up a great cast for his first movie without Joel’s involvement.

Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan have been tapped to lead the untitled movie that Ethan Coen is putting together at Working Title and Focus Features. No details were shared about either of the actress’ roles, but according to Deadline, these roles have become “some of the more coveted parts in the biz for up-and-coming actresses” as Coen’s been meeting with talent over the last several months . Qualley and Viswanathan were ultimately selected when they made it onto the shortlist and knocked it out of the park with their screen tests.
