I’ve always told my friends that the one thing I’d most want to do with David Duchovny is discuss Russian literature (and no, I don’t mean that euphemistically). I understand that this makes me socially freakish, but a good conversation is far more intriguing to me than nearly anything (save winning the lottery, which I would quite like to do as well). So, naturally, this film rumor made me smile and then shake my head (plus, Helen Hunt and Larry Moss? dies):
Yep– the rumor is that he’s doing a modern adaptation of Chekhov’s The Seagull. I very much hope this is true.
So close, universe. So close. Keep trying.
Also, David: try Gogol next.
