The Transformers/Coen Bros Venn diagram
4th July 2014
It's one of the weirdest phenomenons in modern movie history: how is it that so many Coen regulars wind up in Transformers movies? See the culprits as we attempt to figure out what possible motives the guilty parties could have.
I don't know if you noticed, but when you mix together the two completely random colours I used for this Venn diagram, it makes the colour green - and an image of dollar bills mysteriously appeared in the background. Weird! As you can see, Michael Bay has tainted all of the Coen's best Johns: Goodman, Malkovich and Turturro have all been tarnished (in Turturro's case, a Transformer literally pissed in his hair). Given Steve Buscemi's friendship with Michael Bay, it's surely only a matter of time before he's playing a Decepticon called Weasel who dies horribly.
So what can we extrapolate from this information? Well, either Transformers 5 is going to lit by Roger Deakins and scored by Carter Burwell, or Josh Duhamel is going to blow our freaking minds in the new Coen Bros movie.
