Hot of the success of No Country for Old Men, the Coen Brothers are set to work on another adaptation of a Pulitzer prize winning author. Michael Chabon's book "The Yiddish Policemen's Union" was recently acquired by Columbia pictures for the brothers to writer and direct. 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. The brothers are currently working on "The Serious Man" and will be working on Yiddish next.
