Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan to Star in Solo Film From Ethan Coen

For many, the Coen Brothers are among the top filmmaking teams in the business. When Joel Coen and Ethan Coen split a few years ago, some folks took it hard. It wasn’t until Joel’s film The Tragedy of Macbeth hit last year and was rapturously received that most breathed a sigh of relief. Initially, it seemed like Ethan was planning to focus on theater, as opposed to cinema, but he’s actually got a movie in the works, which he co-wrote with his wife Tricia Cooke. Today, we can report on who will be leading his cast.

According to Deadline, Coen has cast Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan in his upcoming solo project. We still don’t know what the film will be about, or even a title, but they’re two exciting young actresses, so this is an excellent start. We know Joel works quite well without his brother, and soon, we’ll see how things fare for Ethan. Focus Features has this one, so we’ll likely hear more about it before too long.
