So far I’m really enjoying J.R. Moehringer’s The Tender Bar. It’s getting me through the madness of packing up my life to move. Of course, whenever there is a book I like (or don’t like actually) there’s usually a movie to go along with it. What can I say, Hollywood isn’t so creative.
The Tender Bar, though, isn’t a movie… yet. However, Scott Rudin bought the film rights back in 2005. You might know Scott Rudin as the producer of such films as Julie & Julia, Revolutionary Road, There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men, just to name a few of his most recent work. Wikipedia also tells me he is working on an adaptation of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, another book I have to read, so he’s very involved in Robin’s Reading List.
Still, no movie exists yet. IMDB doesn’t even have The Tender Bar listed as a movie in development, making me doubtful it’s happening anytime soon if at all. So, while I would love to share a trailer with you, I can’t. Instead, I’ll leave you with a book trailer for The Tender Bar… a very unofficial book trailer. Oh, the things you find on YouTube. Enjoy!
