Coens’ ‘Country’ man

Brolin joins Bardem, Jones in pic

Joel and Ethan Coen set Josh Brolin to join Tommy Lee Jones and Javier Bardem in “No Country for Old Men,” an adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel.

Filming begins late spring. Pic is a co-production between Miramax and Paramount Classics.

Scott Rudin is producing with Ethan Coen. The Coens adapted the novel, which is set in West Texas in 1980.

Brolin will play a Vietnam vet who works in the Texas plains and scoops up a bundle of cash he finds at the scene of a drug deal gone bad.

Jones and Bardem were circling when the studios joined forces (Daily Variety, Feb. 2, 2006).

Brolin just wrapped the Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino pic “Grind House” for Dimension, and moves into the Karen Moncrieff-directed indie “The Dead Girl.”

Pic is one of two Rudin-produced dramas being made by John Lesher’s Par-based classics division and Miramax’s Daniel Battsek. They’re also aligned for “There Will Be Blood,” an adaptation of the Upton Sinclair novel “Oil!” for director Paul Thomas Anderson.
