Getting The Chain Gang Back Together: ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou’ Cast To Reunite Virtually


The cast of the hit movie O Brother, Where Art Thou will get together virtually next month for an online reunion for this year’s Nashville Film Festival to mark the film’s 20th anniversary.

Key Facts

The online event will feature interviews with stars George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson and Chris Thomas King to reminisce on their memories of filming the movie.

Music will also play a major role in the event—O Brother, Where Art Thou and its Grammy award-winning soundtrack is credited with bringing new fans to bluegrass, folk and other traditional musical genres featured in the film.

Tickets for the online event are going for $12 and can be purchased on the Nashville Film Festival’s website.

Crucial Quote

“The Nashville Film Festival is honored to host this incredible lineup of actors and musicians and pay tribute to one of the most beloved and revered films of our time,” Nashville Film Festival head Jason Padgitt told Variety.

Key Background

O Brother, Where Art Thou follows a group of escaped convicts in Mississippi during the Great Depression who break free from a chain gang and go in search of buried treasure. The plot is based in part on Homer’s The Odyssey, along with folklore from the American South. The movie was a surprise hit, grossing nearly $72 million at the box office. The Soggy Bottom Boys are the latest cast to reunite virtually during the pandemic, following actors from titles like Parks and Recreation and The Princess Bride to partake in online specials.
