After the extraordinary success of

Old Men
, the Coen Brothers are hitting the books again, this time
adapting
Michael Chabon’
s The Yiddish Policemen’s Union. The two will direct
the film after their next announced project, the dark comedy A Serious Man.

Set in an alternate America where Jews have taken refuge in
an Alaskan district after the collapse of Israel in 1948, The Yiddish
Policemen’s Union
is a noir which follows detective Meyer Landsman as he
attempts solving a murder, untangling a conspiracy, and generally reassembling
his shambled life. This is the fourth Chabon novel to be adapted for the big
screen, following
Wonder Boys
and the upcoming The Adventures of Kavalier of Clay
and The
Mysteries of Pittsburgh
.

Joel and
Ethan Coen‘s
next film,
Burn
After Reading
, starring
George Clooney
and Brad Pitt,
will be released September 26. A Serious Man is slated for 2009 release,
with Policemen’s Union sometime after that.
