adapt or perish

There's been some interesting adaptation news this week.

The Coen Brothers will adapt Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policemen's Union, which should be an excellent return to the stark, frigid landscapes of Fargo with a speculative twist. (via rockslinga)

Natalie Portman will direct an adaptation of Amos Oz's A Tale of Love and Darkness in Hebrew. (Is all this overachieving designed to make me hate her?)

Faulkner's Intruder in the Dust, originally adapted in 1949, will be made into a film again by Picture Entertainment and Plum Pictures.
