If you're really into movies and you like reading blogs, you have to check out Reel Fanatic . I read what this guy has to say every single day. He keeps me informed about a lot of stuff happening in both the movie and TV world.
He found out the Coens are getting the rights to a book called The Yiddish Policeman's Union by Michael Chabon. Sounds like a typical Coen flick. Here's an excerpt from his post...
Reel Fanatic: The fact is this: "Pushing Daisies" will be back!: "And 'The Yiddish Policemen's Union,' Chabon's 2007 novel, sounds like it's just tailormade for the Coens. Chabon sets up a contemporary scenario where Jewish settlers are about to be displaced by the U.S. government's plans to turn the frozen locale of Sitka, Alaska, over to Alaskan natives. Against this backdrop is a noir-style murder mystery in which a rogue cop investigates the killing of a heroin-addicted chess prodigy who might be the messiah."
