Netflix Loses Disney, Gains Coen Bros.’ BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS
Netflix may be $20 million in debt, but I'm neither an accountant nor an industry insider, so I can't possibly speculate on what's going on behind the scenes (*hint hint*). All I know is that while Disney is pulling its non-Defenders content in favour of its own streaming platform, my $7.99 a month is still going to get me some interesting stories on the good old 'Flix. Namely, Joel & Ethan Coen's The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.
I could give you the whole press release, or I could give you the only bit that matters:
“We are streaming motherfuckers!,” said Joel Coen and Ethan Coen.
One assumes they said this in unison like the creepy twins from The Shining, though speculation has since run rampant about whether this was a typo and they meant "We are streaming, motherfuckers!" or they now consider themselves "streaming motherfuckers!"
The six-part anthology featrues the likes of Tim Blake Nelson, Zoe Kazan, Tyne Daly, James Franco, Stephen Root and Ralph Ineson, and will be available to stream on Netflix worldwide in 2018.
