The Soggy Bottom Boys are getting the band back together.
The Coen brothers’ award-winning musical comedy-drama O Brother, Where Art Thou? debuted in theaters on October 19, 2000. Joel and Ethan Coen wrote, produced, directed, and co-edited the film, which went on to win a Grammy Award for soundtrack of the Year and Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Cinematography.
George Clooney, received a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, while John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson, who played Clooney’s Soggy Bottom Boy bandmates, received high praise for their performances as well.
The movie also had Chris Thomas King, John Goodman, Holly Hunter, and Charles Durning in supporting roles.
At the upcoming Nashville Film Festival, which will be held virtually from October 1-7, Clooney, Turturro, Nelson, and King will be reuniting to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the movie’s debut. Not only will there be cast interviews, but there will also be musical performances from King, Dan Tyminski (who was Clooney’s singing voice in the movie), Carlene Carter and her daughter Tiffany Anastasia Lowe, and Kathleen Edwards and the Dead South.
The reunion has actually already taken place, according to a tweet from Heather Cook, Senior Music Event Producer for the Nashville Film Festival.
“I can’t wait for people to see this special exclusive interview,” she said.
Nashville Film Festival pass holders can attend the virtual event for free, but costs $12 for everyone else. You can purchase your tickets at nashvillefilmfestival.org/2020-festival/.
