See Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake on the Set of the Coen Brothers’ ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’

These aren’t the most exciting set photos we’ve ever seen, but the interest in a new movie from Joel and Ethan Coen trumps any lack of zing in individual photos from the set of one of their films. In this case, the Brothers are now in New York City shooting Inside Llewyn Davis, a film that is based in part on the life of folk musician Dave Van Ronk, who was part of the mid-’60s Greenwich Village folk music upswing.
The onscreen analog of Van Ronk is played by up and coming actor Oscar Isaac (Sucker Punch, Drive) while Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake play a married couple, with Timberlake’s character a rival to Isaac’s. The photos will give you a good idea of the period details the Coens have assembled for the film. Check them out below.
As you can see, there’s nothing very flashy here. But the wardrobe details look quite good, and certainly period-appropriate for the setting. Dig up photos of Bob Dylan and other Greenwich Village figures, before the eccentricity of late-’60s hippie style took hold, and you’ll find people dressed like what you see above.
Also in the cast are Garrett Hedlund, F. Murray Abraham, Jeanine Seralles, Stark Sands, and John Goodman. With the film shooting now, we can hope for a premiere at TIFF or Venice and perhaps even a general engagement for the film later this year, but that might be just a bit optimistic. The Coens are shooting this one as a real indie (albeit with partial backing from StudioCanal), so if it doesn’t turn up this fall, a premiere at Sundance 2013 isn’t inconceivable.
