Coen brothers plan their next movie

For my money, "Fargo" is the best Coen brothers movie ever made. I would rate "No Country For Old Men" in second place. Now it appears they are going to make a western. Here is what Fark had to say:

Filmmaking siblings Joel and Ethan Coen are set to make their goriest film ever - a Spaghetti Western featuring scenes of primitive torture methods. The brothers, whose notoriously gory new film No Country for Old Men has been tipped for Oscar glory, are desperate to make a film about the days of cowboys and Indians battling it out in the Wild West of America. But - as Joel warns - it won't be one for the faint-hearted. He says, "We've written a western with a lot of violence in it. There's scalping and hanging ... it's good. Indians torturing people with ants, cutting their eyelids off." Ethan adds, "It's a proper western, a real western, set in the 1870s. It's got a scene that no one will ever forget because of one particular chicken."

Indians torturing people with ants? I had thought that Clint Eastwood had said it all with "Unforgiven" but he left out the ants.

I will be there on opening day.

These guys are unstoppable. I love them!!!

Maybe I'll fly out to Kansas City for a weekend and we can catch this and a Royals game together.

Wait. Forget the Royals game. I love baseball too much for that.

Yeah I love these guys...

I think there was some crazy Indian torture methods in Hondo with John Wayne. Its been awhile though.

This feels more like a Deadwood approach. The Unforgiven still felt like a movie where Cowboys were gentlemen and I'm not sure they were.

Gentlemen? They cut off the hooker's tits.

Yeah, but did they say Cocksucker? If they say Cocksucker then they're not true gentlemen.
