IMDB says that the funniest novel ever written, A Confederacy of Dunces is going to made into a movie. Steven Soderbergh and Drew Barrymore are producing. Soderbergh cowrote the screenplay. Barrymore has reportedly been cast in the movie, but no word yet on who she’ll be playing. Philip Seymore Hoffman is rumored to be playing Ignatius.
So what do you think? Can a movie possibly be as rich, intelligent, and funny as the book? Is Hoffman a good choice for Ignatius? Who would you like to see in some of the other roles?
