ComingSoon.net talked exclusively to Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin about starring in the Coen brothers' new thriller, No Country for Old Men, opening in theaters on November 9. The film is based on the acclaimed novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Cormac McCarthy.
The story begins when Llewelyn Moss (Brolin) finds a pickup truck surrounded by a sentry of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law - in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell (Jones) - can contain. As Moss tries to evade his pursuers - in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives (Bardem) - the film simultaneously strips down the American crime drama and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning's headlines.
