Hot, Jewish entertainment news is in and it involves three C’s: Coen, Coen and Chabon!

Defamer reports:

In what could be a dream match of creative team and quirky literary material, Joel and Ethan Coen will adapt Michael Chabon’s The Yiddish Policemen’s Union for Columbia, a “noir-style murder mystery in which a rogue cop investigates the killing of a heroin-addicted chess prodigy who might be the messiah” set in a Jewish settlement in Alaska. (Are we allowed to get pre-excited about this one?)

Uh, most definitely!
