Keeping Cool is Getting Difficult.

So, everything I ever learned about the J&J movie I read on random online newsfeeds, so I don't know how much of this is true, but there are rumors a-flying about the folks signing on for this thing that is apparently really maybe going to happen... Nora Ephron is pretty much a lock - as much as these things can be locks - and all signs point to yes for Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. (Please to knock on your largest available piece of wood. (And don't be gross, dude.)) Now I hear a little tale that Stanley Tucci just might be playing Paul Child, which is just about as awesome as it gets.

Wait, Amy Adams is going to play you? I've always wondered who would play me in the movie version of my life. Amy Adams would be an excellent choice.

i just finished your book! it was so much better than studying for my economics final tomorrow. my only question though, is this - do you still live in long island city? you said you'd move out of the apartment if the book sold. i hope you did! (no one should have to deal with the plumbing issues you did).

It's so funny- but I was a devoted fan of the original blog and of course snapped up the book when it came out. And while yes... I totally understand you're a real person... you know what it's like when you read a book and then get disappointed because the movie doesn't live up to the images you created in your head? Wonder if it's gonna be like that...

This is really awesome Julie! I'm going to try to not sound creepy here, but you really are an inspiration to so many of us - you're basically an idol to me. It warms my heart to see people that have a dream/goal and have it materialize. I am so proud and happy for you. Good luck!

I just finished reading your book at about 2AM last night and wanted to tell you how much I liked it. I really connected to your message of creating one's own meaning in life.

Keeping my fingers crossed for the movie!

I'm writing from the Food Network Canada and would love to hear back from you re: a bio doc series we're working on here. I'd like to speak with you about it- it's Dec. 12 at 11:30am my time in Toronto.

8.45 p.m. in the middle of nowhere, Iowa, and I just finished your book. God love the Internet for making it so easy to get all stalker on people and drop you a line!

I've never cooked a Julia Child recipe in my life, but I've just moved in with Boyfriend, who is a HUGE fan of French food and gets up every Sunday morning to read cookbooks, for pity's sake. So yes. Your book came at an opportune time. Many thanks.

Congrats, I heard Stanley is almost a definite for Paul. He finishes up The Lovely Bones down here in Feb. I THINK filming is slated for starting in March for J and J.
He and Meryl are friends I think they would do great as a "couple" :)

I just heard Nora on NPR talking about writing the screenplay. Congrats!

Your book made me laugh out loud. I've recommended it to everyone I know, foodies and non-foodies alike.

You are one of my inspirations for starting my own blog!

Julie, having almost finished your book, I am knocking on every piece of wood that I can find. I used to read JC's book as a teenager and just the French names of the food seemed to make the dishes sound wonderful and exciting.I was hooked!
I was redeemed by reading of your sinks full of dirty dishes etc...I cook for myself and my sink is always piled up. Thanks for letting me know I am NOT a slob. Can't wait for the movie. I am SO thrilled for you.

Stanley Tucci as Paul Child? Somehow, I cannot imagine a more perfect actor for that role!

I'm about half way through your book and loving it - food/reading/swearing - all huge parts of my life - including my love for New York City ( I'm a Brit) I am very interested to hear it's going to be made into a movie - congratulations - I hope you get to have some control over what happens with it.
It's one of those books where I just don't want it to end - and now I've found this blog I'll be checking back often.
What a project!
If we had an equivalent here to JC it would probably be Fanny Craddock - I'm sure you'll have heard of her - quite fearful but one of the Uk's most missed tv chefs....
all the best

What a dream cast!!! I just finished reading your book - it inspired me to actually cook something from scratch last night (cod with creamy cucumber dill sauce, a thinned-down JC recipe). Tell me, is your original blog still online?

Hi Julie,
My husband gave me your book and I absolutely loved it--your sense of humor and honesty were wonderful and your political opinions match mine. I love to cook but haven't spent much time with J.C's MTAoFC since I spent two days making "Boeuf en Daube" and my husband said "nice beef stew" :-)
I would love to read your original blog--is it still available? Please let us know!
Greetings from Vermont

So... I know you wrote this blog a million years ago.. or rather a few months back, but they were shooting your movie on my street yesterday! I saw Amy Adams skipping up Broadway in Astoria and darting into my corner bodega while the cameras rolled. It was exciting! Astoria Fruits and Vegetables never looked so fancy! Congrats!
