Preview, So many pre #MeToo James Franco movies, at least Netflix has a Use for “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”

The news here isn’t that the shamed James Franco, who had so much work in the can before revelations about his predations on young to under-age women became public, has another movie coming out.

Or that he made a Western, “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” for Netflix.

It’s that the Coen Brothers cast him, Liam Neeson, Brendan Gleeson, Tim Blake Nelson, Stephen Root and many others signed up for the Nov. Netflix release.

Six episodes about a man named Buster Scruggs is what the movie’s about.

And it’s almost reflexive, these days, to dig deep into the credits. There’s only one young woman listed in the cast, and one can only hope she avoided his attention during filming. At 35, she’s probably aged out of his pool of victims.
