From the BBC website:

The Coen brothers are to adapt author Michael Chabon’s bestseller The Yiddish Policeman’s Union for the big screen.
Joel and Ethan Coen will write and direct the Alaskan murder mystery, set in a fictional Jewish settlement, after Columbia Pictures acquired the rights.
The Coens’ current film No Country for Old Men, which earned the brothers a Bafta for best director at the weekend, is nominated for eight Academy Awards.
Its producer Scott Rudin has also signed up for the new project.
I haven’t bought The Yiddish Policemen’s Union yet but as it has been nominated for an Edgar, and also for a Hammett, it looks like a must buy.
