Macbeth Director Joel Coen Discusses Working Without Brother Ethan

January 11, 2022

The Coen Brothers are what we have called Joel and Ethan since 1984’s Blood Simple hit the screens. They’ve delighted audiences for nearly four decades with gems including Raising Arizona, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, Fargo, The Big Lebowski, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading, A Serious Man, True Grit, Inside Llewyn Davis, the list goes on. However, Ethan Coen decided to get off the ride and embark on a new adventure in theater. Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth will be the first solo project for the writer/director. Joel Coen, per the Los Angeles Times explains, “I knew I’d be directing the next one by myself,” he says. “If I was working with Ethan, I wouldn’t have done Macbeth, it would not be interesting to him.”
