Acclaimed filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen ("The Big Lebowski", "Fargo") are set to direct the big screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's bloody West Texas noir thriller "No Country for Old Men" reports Production Weekly.
The film follows Llewelyn Moss, a husband out hunting near the Rio Grande who comes across a drug deal gone sour - leaving behind a cache of heroin, two million dollars and several bodies. When two more men end up murdered, the local Sheriff comes to realise Moss and his wife need protection.
Things turn dangerous when various men, ranging from ruthless freelancers to ex-Special Forces members turn up to find out the truth and destroy all evidence.
Production is scheduled to begin May on location in Texas and New Mexico.
