We Need Pedro Pascal, Beanie Feldstein, Colman Domingo, and More in ‘Drive-Away Dolls’ Now!

Colman Domingo, Beanie Feldstein, and Pedro Pascal at events

Imagine being a fan of the Coen Brothers and then discovering some of your favorite actors are working with Ethan Coen on a new movie. That’s what happened with me when I read about Drive-Away Dolls. Now, it seemed for a minute that Ethan Coen was done with directing as he stopped making movies with his brother Joel after The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, but he’s returning with two new projects: A documentary premiering at Cannes, and a new feature film called Drive-Away Dolls.

We don’t know if this means that the Coen Brothers will return to working together again (Joel Coen directed The Tragedy of Macbeth on his own) but we’ll have to wait and see. For now, though, we have Coen directing Drive-Away Dolls.

Ethan Coen and Tricia Cooke’s new comedy caper will be released in the U.S. by Focus Features, and it really just came out of nowhere to derail everyone’s day—because Pedro Pascal in an Ethan Coen movie? That sounds like my dream come true.

Drive-Away Dolls has a stacked cast!

There are few things in this world that excite audiences in the way that a new Pedro Pascal project does. But then you add in Colman Domingo, Margaret Qualley, and the incredible cast of Drive-Away Dolls, and suddenly we’re screaming in excitement. The entire cast includes Geraldine Viswanathan, Beanie Feldstein, Bill Camp, and Matt Damon.

This is a reunion for Pascal and Domingo, who were both in If Beale Street Could Talk, and for Damon and Pascal, who were in The Great Wall together. Seeing this cast all working together in a movie is going to be so much fun for fans, even if we don’t know a ton about it.

What is Drive-Away Dolls about?

The synopsis for the film is as follows: “Written by Ethan Coen and Tricia Cooke, this 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.”

So, exactly who is playing who is going to be something we learn along the way, but this is enough to keep us excited while we wait for the movie’s release.

You have a while to wait for Drive-Away Dolls

Right now, Drive-Away Dolls is set to release on September 22, 2023. So there’s an entire summer between us and the movie. But we’ll surely be getting some trailers and images soon to help tide us over until we get to see Drive-Away Dolls in theaters.
