The Coen brothers have signed on Michael Stuhlbarg and Richard Kind (ABC's Spin City) to star as brothers in their upcoming period black comedy, A Serious Man.

According to Variety, the film is set in 1967 and centers on Larry Gopnik (Stuhlbarg), a Midwestern professor whose life begins to unravel when his wife sets out to leave him and his socially inept brother (Kind) won't move out of the house.

Shooting is set to start at the beginning of next month in Minneapolis.
