The Coen Brothers are adapting Michael Chabon's novel The Yiddish Policemen's Union for producer Scott Rudin. I wish them luck. Chabon's a terrific novelist but his books aren't the easiest to adapt. Then again, Curtis Hanson did a pretty fine job with Chabon's Wonder Boys which I just adore. In fact, it was my second favourite film the year it was released after Memento. Now, if only Rudin could get Chabon's Kavalier & Clay off the ground.
