  • I was on IMDB the other day looking for info. on where they were with Yiddish Police Man’s Union, but didn’t find anything other than it was delayed. Getting this movie made is starting to feel like The Hobbit, except only like five people are concerned about it.

    I remember the same thing happening with Kavalier and Clay. Bummer

    I, too, am impatiently waiting for news about the Yiddish Policemen’s Union movie. I have cast it and recast it and re-recast it in my head a dozen times. Please make the movie before the actor and actresses I want to see in it are too old for the parts!

    The only acceptable explanation I can think of for this not being in production already is that they’re waiting for John Turturro to completely master the Yiddish slang so he can play Landsman. Although, I don’t think it would take him this long…

  • Turturro is too skinny– isn’t Landsman supposed to be sort of… pleasingly plump?
