Last year, it was announced that the Coen Brothers, who were snubbed in the worst kind of ways at the Oscars this year, were going back to the well to reinvent and retell their classic movie Fargo. The film is being retold as a limited series on FX and we have gotten our first look at the cast from the series.
The series stars Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman and Bob Odenkirk among a slew of other film actors making their way to the miniseries.
Fans initially had reservations about the idea of a television series based on Fargo, but once word that the Coen Brothers were involved leaked out, a lot of people began to jump on board.
Fargo is perhaps the Coen’s most well known and well respected film as it won them their first Oscar and was the film that put them on the map. They followed up the film with an Oscar win for Best Picture and Best Director in 2006 for No Country for Old Men.
But Fargo remains their most iconic work and that bode well for the appeal and the care that will be taken with the television series.
