Joseph Edgar Allen John "Eddie" Mannix was an American film studio executive and producer.
First revealed in 2004, the film was originally set to take place in the 1920s and to follow actors performing a play about ancient Rome.
Ancient Rome was an Italic civilization that began on the Italian Peninsula as early as the 8th century BC.
The Coens shelved the idea until late 2013, when they stated it was in development.
