The Coen brothers are planning a sequel to one of their best-loved films

Joel and Ethan Coen have been behind some of the most memorable comedies of the last 30 years.

The Big LebowskiA Serious Man and Fargo were all fantastic pieces of work, while their more serious efforts like No Country For Old Men also did the business.

And the siblings have now announced they’re planning a sequel to one of their cult favourites.

Barton Fink, which came out 25 years ago and won the Palme d’Or at Cannes, is set for a part two according to the pair.

“That’s the one movie that we thought deserves a sequel, called Old Fink. But we don’t want to do it until Turturro is quite old. He’s getting there,” Joel Coen said.

Turturro, who also played Jesus in The Big Lebowski, has worked with the Coens for the best part of three decades.

And the sequel to the 1941-set Barton Fink will be set in 1960s California with Turturro’s character teaching at UC Berkeley. It seems we might need to wait for further details, though.
