It has been reported that CBS Films have come out on top in the bidding war for the rights to the Coen Brothers movie Inside Llewyn Davis. The Coen Brothers produced the movie, without even having a domestic distributor on board, but that has now changed.
Inside Llewyn Davis was screened to potential buyers, which led to an all out bidding war for the movie, before CBS Films eventually came out on top. CBS Films will now take charge of the domestic distribution of Inside Llewyn Davis and will be looking to get it out this year.
Inside Llewyn Davis centres around the 1960s folk music scene, in New York's Greenwich Village. The movie will focus on the famous singer songwriter, Llewyn Davis, who is played by Oscar Isaac (Drive), as he battles with the struggles of finding his own way in the scene.
As well as starring Oscar Isaac, Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake, Inside Llewyn Davis also stars F. Murray Abraham and John Goodman. It has been rumoured that Inside Llewyn Davis could be set to make its debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May, although that has yet to be confirmed.
