The Oscar-winning Coen brothers are returning to their home state of Minnesota to shoot their next movie.

Joel and Ethan Coen (kohn) are scheduled on Monday to start shooting "A Serious Man" in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

The movie - about a professor whose life is falling apart - is set in 1967 in an unspecified suburb similar to St. Louis Park, where the Coens grew up.

It's the first time the Coens have filmed in Minnesota since 1996's "Fargo."
