Joyous news! It says the plot is going to be genuine Coen, as is the directing. looks like we can expect to revisit every American stereotype in perfect and minutiae detail yet again. The original remains one of my all time favorite films.

Good story from the Big Lebowski wikipedia page about how the soundtrack was put together:

They asked T-Bone Burnett to pick songs for the soundtrack of the film. They knew that they wanted different genres of music from different times but, as Joel remembers, "T-Bone even came up with some far-out Henry Mancini and Yma Sumac". Burnett was able to secure the rights to the songs by Kenny Rogers and the Gipsy Kings and also added tracks by Captain Beefheart, Moondog and the rights to a relatively obscure Bob Dylan song called "The Man in Me". However, he had a tough time securing the rights to Townes Van Zandt's cover of the Rolling Stones' "Dead Flowers", which plays over the film's closing credits. Former Stones manager Allen Klein owned the rights to the song and wanted $150,000 for it. Burnett convinced Klein to watch an early cut of the film and remembers, "It got to the part where the Dude says, 'I hate the [ ****** ]' Eagles, man!' Klein stands up and says, 'That's it, you can have the song!' That was beautiful".

But you probably already knew that Korff!

I hope it is good. I have a lot of time for almost all the Coen films; notable exclusions being The Ladykillers and Intolerable Cruelty.

Funnily enough, I didn't! But thanks for the fascinating insight

I can, however, recite pretty much the entire script from memory. In fact there's a small but significant part of my brain that basically has the Big Lebowski on a loop. If I've had a particularly 'out there' weekend, I just chuck the Lebowski on and I'm instantly in my comfort zone.

Cheers!

Chris

I still don't get how it is their brilliant remake of 'True Grit' (not only a Coen film but with Spielberg as executive director and staring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and young Hailee Stienfeld) bombed at the Oscars (despite receiving 10 nominations) when a very average film about a dead king's speech impediment cleaned up? I watched the two in succession the other week to try and figure it out. To me 'The King's Speech' is a yawn against 'True Grit'. Which presumably is why the stage show folded as soon as it opened. I can only guess there is an unhealthy level of sycophancy towards the British monarchy amongst certain Vanity Fair reading types in La La Land...

Me too but apparently its not Don Henley's favorite film (he is reported to cross the road if he ever sees a Coen coming the other way...)!

True Grit was alright, but I'm not a fan of the genre really. I have no desire to see the King's Peach though.

Hmm, I don't know, Big Lebowski is classic (think I might watch it right now actually), I just hope they don't taint it.

It could seem a little "same old, same old" when he knocks up his first White Russian though

I don't know, I'm still not tiring of them myself! And since we saw Jeff Bridges create The Dude we have also seen him create Bad (in Crazy Heart - not a Coen offering but another film I like very much for different reasons). Bad ended up finally growing up and getting dry (after a lifetime of being soused). If I was writing the script I'd likely have the Dude, 18 years on, revisit his relationship with alcohol and narcotics. After all, the idea is to explore American stereotypes and Boomers in the autumn of their years is a big one in the States just now. It would also offer a chance to explore the healthcare debate America is having on the side, being as the (now defunct) rumor was that the script was largely to be set in DC...
