Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. All this lawsuit business... nasty, bad vibes... Now time for some good vibes. The Coen Bros rule. We know this. Michael Chabon rules. We know this. Together they shall rule the earth, wind, water, wood... everything Captain Planet loves, essentially.
The Coens are adapting and directing Chabon's THE YIDDISH POLICEMAN'S UNION.
I haven't read this particular Chabon book, but it sounds right up the Coens' alley. Check out this blurb from the Variety article about the story:
"Chabon sets up a contemporary scenario where Jewish settlers are about to be displaced by 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."
