The 1996 Coen Brothers movie “Fargo” is coming to the small screen next month, and FX has released teaser trailers! From the looks of it, not too much of the tone has changed between the film and the TV series. Nobody captures the barren, Midwestern winter quite like the Coen Brothers, so I can’t wait to see how things play out in the series.
The show has a limited 10-episode run, and will star Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman and Molly Solverson. The main characters, while different from the film, seem to be loosely based on the roles that William H. Macy and Frances McDormand made famous back in the ’90s. See all 11 teasers here, and get excited for that Minnesota accent. [Screen Rant]
I’m too young to remember Angelina in the age of Billy Bob [Sigh. -- Editor], but of course I’ve heard the legends: the tattoos, the tumultuous relationship, the blood vial necklaces. As if anyone needs to be reminded, before Angelina was an altruistic philanthropist, she was the baddest of bad girls, and Billy Bob Thornton only served to stoke her fire. They divorced in 2002, and while Angelina never mentions her ex to the press, he’s vocal about the fact that he still loves and respects his former love. Interesting it is, then, that Billy Bob has reached out to co-write a film, entitled “And Then We Drove,” that will be something of an interpretation of his relationship with Jolie. The film is set to be an “ethereal” story of a man on a road trip who picks up a “wild woman” and takes her along on his journey. I’m not too worried: Angelina was notoriously wanton, but it seems to me like Billy Bob reveres his ex-wife and would do little to incite her. Angelina was more public with her life and struggles during that time, so I don’t think there’s much we don’t know already know about her past… or is there? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Looks like Hollywood has decided to give boxing dramas another shot. Actor Billy Bob Thornton and director Ron Shelton have teamed up to make a flick about a depressed, widowed ex-boxer and a troubled, teenaged Latino fighter.
