Calling all Jonathan Safran Foer fans! Did you love the adaptation of Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close? Yes? Then you can take comfort in the fact that the movie got a Best Picture nomination this morning (puzzling many) and a Best Actor In a Supporting Role nod for Max von Sydow. Hated it? Well . . . you’re not alone; the film has a 48% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. However, you’ll be able to see Foer’s words come to life on the screen once more in a new comedy pilot from HBO.
The show is called All Talk and will star Ben Stiller—who will also direct and executive produce. Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter:
The project, which is being billed as “politically, religiously, culturally, intellectually and sexually irreverent,” revolves around the daily and life-altering dramas of a Jewish family in Washington, DC.
All Talk will start shooting in Fall 2012. Are you looking forward to this Stiller-Foer collaboration?
