Ethan Coen and Tricia Cooke say that ‘Drive-Away Dolls‘ is the first of a planned trilogy of “lesbian B movies.” Cooke explained that their original intention was to write three queer B movies, which they expected would remain unpublished. However, they have successfully brought one of them to completion. Coen added that they have already completed the script for another movie in the trilogy.
Ethan Coen and Tricia Cooke’s Lesbian B Movie Trilogy: Two More To Come
In an interview with Collider, Cooke revealed that they have spent 20 years writing a lesbian B movie trilogy with the expectation that they would remain unpublished. However, they have now completed and produced one of the films.
Cooke said, “Over the past 20 years, we’ve been writing this lesbian B movie trilogy. Not really a trilogy, but the idea was to write three queer B movies that I always thought would just kind of sit in the drawer and our kids would look at one day when they were old and get some laughs. And now we’ve made one of them.”
Coen added, “And we have another one written. The problem with writing two is then you’re obliged to do a third because nobody does two. You gotta do a trilogy. I don’t even know the word for two corresponding to a trilogy.”
Most recently, the first trailer for ‘Drive-Away Dolls’ was released. Ethan Coen and Tricia Cooke write the film, and the plot follows “Comedy caper follows Jamie, an uninhibited free spirit bemoaning yet another breakup with a girlfriend, and her demure friend Marian, who desperately needs to loosen up. In search of a fresh start, the two embark on an impromptu road trip to Tallahassee, but things quickly go awry when they cross paths with a group of inept criminals along the way.“
