The Coen brothers are going full speed ahead with Inside Llewyn Davis, a movie loosely based on the story of Dave Van Ronk, a central figure in the Greenwich Village folk scene of the Sixties. The Coens' original screenplay will be heavily fictionalized, with a Van Ronk analog named Llewyn Davis struggling as a folk musician during the peak of the genre.

Inside Llewyn Davis is currently planned to be the Coen brothers' followup to True Grit, but a release date has not been set. The Coens will direct and produce the picture along with producer Scott Rudin and executive producer Robert Graf, with whom they collaborated on the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men.
