Coens Consider Barton Fink Sequel
Filmmaking duo THE COEN BROTHERS are considering making a sequel to their 1991 movie BARTON FINK.
John Turturro played a frustrated 1940s playwright suffering writer's block in the dark comedy, one of the brothers' first box office hits, and now, 18 years later, the Coens admit they've been fantasising about catching up with the character.
Ethan Coen tells GQ magazine, "We have thoughts about doing a sequel to Barton Fink. Barton is now a middle-aged professor at Berkeley (university) with long grey sideburns and big medallions."
Joel adds, "It would be called Old Fink and set in San Francisco during the Summer of Love (1967)."
