Fans of Michael Pollan, get ready to head to the movie theater.

In a profile of Frances McDormand in The New York Times last week, the star revealed that she has bought the film rights to Pollan’s bestseller The Omnivore’s Dilemma. The star revealed that it would be a fictionalized version of the book.

The Times reports “she [McDormand] hoped to weave strands of it into a fictional narrative about the distance that people travel, in their diets and souls, from the earth. She’d have a supporting role, as the protagonist’s mother, with terminal cancer.”

We’re definitely intrigued to see how that would play out on screen.
