Ethan Coen is following his brother Joel’s lead, and will be directing his next film without his sibling involved.

Last year we saw the Coen brothers break a decades-long partnership of directing together, when Joel Coen made The Tragedy Of Macbeth on his own. Since then, questions have lingered as to what the next step for the pair would be. Would they return to making films as a duo or would this be the first step towards in increase in solo projects? Well, we seemingly have that answer now with reports via Deadline that now Ethan Coen has signed up to make his next film solo.

Whilst almost nothing is known about Coen’s next project at this point, it’s been confirmed that he will be working without his brother. The production has been set up at Focus Features in partnership with Working Title. Coen co-wrote the script for the project along with Tricia Cooke.

That’s all we really know at this point, but we’ll certainly bring you more as we hear it. This means that as it stands, The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs remains as the last film on the brothers’ shared filmography. That rather wonderful movie which can be viewed on Netflix, earned them an Oscar nod for Best Adapted Screenplay. We’ll bring you more on this story as we hear updates on title, plot and casting.
