The story is loosely based on the life of New York folk singer Dave van Ronk, who was a Greenwich Village staple in the 1960s. Oscar Isaac will star as the title character, and Carey Mulligan has also been cast. We reported last night that Justin Timberlake has been offered the role of Jim, a folk singer married to Carey Mulligan's character, Jean.
Joel Coen and Ethan Coen are directing Inside Llewyn Davis from their own script, which is partially based on Dave van Ronk's memoir, The Mayor of MacDougal Street.
It isn't known when production may begin on Inside Llewyn Davis.
Inside Llewyn Davis was released December 6th, 2013 and stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Ethan Phillips, Robin Bartlett, Max Casella, Jerry Grayson, Jeanine Serralles. The film is directed by Ethan Coen, Joel Coen.
