coenbrothers 1 Coen Brothers to Adapt Chabon's Yiddish Policemen's Union, Rudin ProducingPerhaps hoping for a repeat of No Country For Old Men, the Coen Brothers are once again teaming up with producer Scott Rudin to make a movie out of Michael Chabon’s The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Variety reports. Columbia acquired the screen rights.

"No Country," which was based on the Cormac McCarthy book, was nominated for eight Oscars this year, including for best picture and best adapted screenplay.

Variety notes:

"Yiddish" is the third Chabon novel that Rudin is translating to the screen. The first was "Wonder Boys," and Rudin is developing a Paramount-based adaptation of Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay," which Chabon scripted.
