First Look At Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan & Justin Timberlake On Set Of The Coens' 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

Last year was bittersweet for fans of the Coen Brothers. While it was the first time in four years the prolific duo didn't have a film released, it was announced that they'd be returning to the music world in 2012 for their next feature "Inside Llewyn Davis" which would focus on the '60's Greenwich Village scene that included names like Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Ramblin' Jack Elliott and Joni Mitchell among others.

Last year was bittersweet for fans of the Coen Brothers. While it was the first time in four years the prolific duo didn't have a film released, it was announced that they'd be returning to the music world in 2012 for their next feature "Inside Llewyn Davis" which would focus on the '60's Greenwich Village scene that included names like Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Ramblin' Jack Elliott and Joni Mitchell among others.

Lensing on the picture has only recently began but a host of set photos have already been appearing online over the last week or so providing our first glimpses at leading man Oscar Isaac, who reportedly plays a surrogate of folk singer Dave van Ronk, along with a bearded Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, who respectively play the married pair of Jim (a rival musician) and Jean.

Exact plot details are still under wraps but a recent profile of the production in the New York Times described the film as a "screwball comedy" which, if accurate, would be fascinating in conjunction with the film's musical elements. Garrett Hedlund, F. Murray Abraham, Jeanine Seralles and John Goodman also co-star in the film along with recent addition Stark Sands, a Broadway performer whose likely to add some singing chops as a forlorn solider on leave with talent for music. No word yet on what timeframe the film to be unveiled but we're guessing the fall festival circuit is a good bet. [via The Film Stage/Gothamist]
