“I wouldn’t actually call it a ‘musical comedy’ — there are movies within the movie.”

More information has been revealed as to the content up the Coen Brothers next movie “Hail, Caesar!” People who are working with the Oscar winning duo opened up to the media about it at the Tribeca Film festival.

Apparently the musical comedy is not going to be so comedic after all. Joel Coen and his brother Ethan Coen themselves, however, are remaining mum. They are always tight lipped about their films.

But anyone who has ever seen a Coen Brothers film knows that their movies never fit into any one category. Also, Coen Brothers fans know how versatile they are and that each of their films is vastly different in style and subject than its predecessors.

But the movie’s composer Carter Burwell told an audience gathered at the “Dolby Institute: The Sound of the Coens” masterclass held at this year’s festival, “It’s a musical comedy that takes place on a Hollywood backlot, so you pass through all these pictures that are in production there.”

But he added, “I wouldn’t actually call it a ‘musical comedy’ — there are movies within the movie, and those movies might have comedic music, but the movie we’re making is actually not comical, ” he elaborated. “I haven’t written the music yet, but I’m quite certain it’s actually going to be quite the opposite. It’s going to be rather serious, and it’s about faith. It’s not about the music.”

Due out in February 2016, “Hail, Caesar!” will star Scarlett Johansson,
Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ralph Fiennes, George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Tilda Swinton and Frances McDormand. In case you were counting, those actors have a combined ten Oscar nominations for acting and three wins among them.

It is, of course, being co-written and co-directed by both of the Coen Brothers.
