The trailer for the Coen Bros’ new film ‘The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs’ has Finchy from ‘The Office’ in it



The project has had quite a strange journey – it was originally going to be a six-part Western anthology series where Tim Blake Nelson’s Scruggs was the only character in every episode, but earlier this year it was re-tooled into a feature film, which has just opened at the Venice Film Festival and immediately won a Best Screenplay award.(As far as we know, the whole six-parter was filmed, raising questions as to just what form this Best Screenplay took, and whether it was six scripts, as well as how much good stuff had to be cut out in the retooling.)When the Coens first signed on to work with Netflix, they put out the statement “We are streaming motherfuckers!”, which they really should have incorporated into their awards speech. They might get another chance – there’s already lots of Oscar buzz around the film.The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs hits Netflix on November 16th.
